From: Central NY
I retired 2 1/2 years ago because I could not stand what my job had evolved into after the company I worked for was bought out by a global corporation. Once I had Medicare for insurance, I was gone. I retired on my birthday. I had to supplement my income some in the beginning, but after moving some investments around, with my social security, annuities and pensions I am able to enjoy life - maybe not on a grand scale, but I'm okay. I enjoy a fairly active social life, sewing, painting, drawing and relaxing! I also have time to do the physical therapy that makes me more comfortable physically. If I have a regret, it would be not waiting six months when I MIGHT have been phased out with a benefit package, but ... it would not have been enough, honestly, to put up with that place another 6 months.
