Yes, unsubsidized ACA is costly. For us, the COBRA was going to cost $1,273/mo, and ACA silver WITH SUBSIDY was $213/mo. It all depends on the subsidy!

Well, gave notice for end of June so no backing out now. Had a good heart to heart with DW on spending and that was quite positive. Got domestic travel lined up through October with plans to visit friends in the Rockies and east coast by car so much to look forward to post retirement. The feeedback has been most beneficial so thanks to all. Nice to have some outside counsel sense-check my parameters.

Iíve looked over my posts and didnít see where I referenced this. Real estate wasnít included in my numbers but your estimate is in the ballpark. Numbers in the op exclude real estate holdings. They are about $1.9 MM if I were to believe the tax authorities. About $4.9 now without real estate. Of course, I already started the ball rolling so keep your responses free of panic inducing content.
