That must be catching, I'm going thru that with my wife right now. Hopefully, next January.

Good Luck, Ed. Maybe the human resources person is a crappie fisherman!

Have you ever felt like you're in a loose-loose situation? Sometimes, it just seems like you can't please them. Work your butt off for them so you can retire because they want security in the future, then when you want to retire, they don't want you too. Guess it'll never be enough.

Mine won't let me quit my job at the paper and work at what I love, fishing and guiding, because of the retirement issue. Guess she just assumes I won't pay social security, like the law doesn't require it, and stop contributing to my ole IRA. Is it not amazing how they can get so many negative things out of one truly positive thing that would give us some piece of mind and happiness. Hell, I only see a smile on Julie's face when she's torturing me.

well, when i turned 55 after 37 years govt service, ( went into the army at 17, then to work for the postal service after five and half years for the army, then 32 years for the po as a letter carrier.) i retired and had a lot of folks tell me, "why you retiring at your age cause you gonna get bored and join up with the locals that gather at hardees for a couple hours every morning." well, i had no qualms about retiring at all, i dont miss the work nor the folks i was working with and i most certainly havent joined the local yokels hanging out at hardees waiting for the grim reaper to strike. I have learned im am my own best company and love the aloness i have at times cause most folks i fish with are still working. I have made some friends that have different work hours and different days off so now its no problem for me to find someone to fish with on any particular day i wanna go, which most weeks ill average about two to three trips a week. nope, i dont miss work a bit and id reccomend anyone go for it as soon as they can. enjoy life a bit and learn to live on your retirement check and dont worry about it :)

I enjoy my job most days - but I enjoy fishing more - I got 7 more years an I will have my full 30 - if the legislature helps out and changes it to 25 year retirement and will be down to 2 years - I might be dangerous then

My union lets us take our pension at 53. Frances Gail loves to hunt and fish with me and it seems like there is always plenty of things to do. Some days it seems like I am busier than when I worked. Everyone knows the best fishing is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. :D

Ya'll have got me depressed now. I got 23 more years before my 30 is in and then I'll only be 53 so I'll have to keep working till at least 55 with the county and even longer if I want to reach social security age assuming they still have such a thing by then. I think I'm going to have a beer now :mad:
If I stay for the full 30 I will be 52 - law enforcement in NC has a special retirement that pays us what social security pays until we reach social security age
