I can't go to retirement yet. I'm almost 54 and have 19 years in with the University. To get decent retirement benefits one needs to be 55 and have 20 years. So I'm in for at least another 14 months. Even then, it is not an optimal time to retire. I should work at least 2 more years past that, but it will not need to be at a 100% assignment. May go down to 70-75%.
I should work until Jan, 2015, if I want a comfortable retirement. But I can't see that happening. In fact the very thought of working that long is enough to make me want to run screaming into the night. Going to have to make compromises on that front.
