Thanks, guys. It appears to be a pretty good deal to me when I look at TSP, Berkshire or immediateannuities. Especially, the COLA protection. about 40-50% better, in fact.
Now just trying to figure out if we're going to buy survivor benefits for ME. Just doing livingto100, the DW should outlive me by a minimum of 10 years, and she's 2 years older than me. So, probably not..........
Yep, you're right, "I've been rode hard and put away wet." As my daddy always said, "if you're gonna use candlelight, burn the damn thing from both ends."
