Yes!! RE this Friday, Aug 3rd
Finally RE'ing this Friday, Aug 3rd. 42 years at the same company. Reason: Too many other things to do in life while health is great and financials are good. Just turned 60. Wife wants to work 2 more years, says she is not ready to retire (Guess the nursing profession gets in your blood-pun intended).
No mortagage, no car payments, no kids.
Pension about $7,400/yr
401K about $485K
New York Life annuities, Roth, etc about $600K
5 NYL policies turning into a 5 year cash stream to yield $16K/year
Wifes income about $30K/year.
Of course there is some apprehension of leaving my work extended family, but 42 years is enough.
The RE forums have been great with helping me make my decision. Thanks to all. Now my turn to contribute. Will let you know how great it all works out.
