Rule of 90

I hit an odd threshold yesterday. Rule of 90. When years of service plus age equals 90, I can retire with my full retirement benefit. The reality is that I don't think I can take advantage of this for another year. But the empowerment to be able to say enough of this crap and walk away is......interesting. It would be financially difficult to do this, but we wouldn't starve.

Understand, I like my job (and the "crap" isn't a big or common part), but I'm about ready to be done with it.

My pension plan was set up such that once we hit the maximum level (full pension achieved) we stopped paying into the plan. I never reached that point but I hope your plan is similar. Enjoy the sense of freedom you get with the 90 level accomplishment.
Hugs.

I never regret retiring when I did and I am busier now than when I was working but at least I am doing what I want to do when I want to do it. Hugs and looking forward to seeing you all at Duckon!!! Right now I am in "Get the CD Done" mode and Dave arrives here on Tuesday and we are booked for mastering and replication on April 3rd.
Hopefully we will have the new DW CD for Duckon!! Next up is the Stone Dragons CD, work on Bill Roper's new CD, work on Aime"s new CD and FKO, Duckon and ConChord.

Checking in a year later...

How do you feel about retirement now compared to when you first hit the Rule of 90?

I miss you! Hope you have a fabulous time as Musician GoH at Minicon!

Clearing out some emails. Missed getting back to this before now.

The University is offering a retirement incentive offer. It will cover their contribution to my heath insurance for two years. The timing is right this time. I won't be retiring to the idle rich, but we can do it with almost no net change in income for the next few years. Financial considerations have me choosing the end of the window, so my retirement date will be Jan 11 2012.

Wish you could come to Minicon. My GoH Jam Band is going to be awesome.
