I plan to retire June 29, 2014. I turn 62 on July 3 next year. I will have been at the college where I am and if you are 62 and have been there 15 years, you can "retire" from the college meaning you can keep your health care and pay the current rate you pay insurance which fir us is 150 a month for both of us. Hubby is self employed so ins is a must.
This is my 39th year in higher Ed, and all three colleges have had the same retirement system so it has just traveled with me. We are debt free, and excited about traveling more. We have been traveling a good bit for the past dozen years, and have 20 cruises since 2006. Life is good.
My Dad died at 62, three months after retiring. I have always been aware that we need to go while we can!
