Thread: TangoMike's retirement story...

    Default TangoMike's retirement story...

    So I retired back in 3/2017 at 56.8yo and 30; sold back some mil time and punch out as a gs 13.7. I worked for the DoD in the balto/wa area save for 1 pcs tour to the UK. My agency has a large contractor base so the plan was to go contractor till 62yo. I'm almost 2.5 years into it and all is going well; I haven't tapped into my tsp and it is growing at a 4-5 % clip. I'm a nervous ninny and would stress out if i portioned it out to a more aggressive profile...so mostly g with a touch of c and 2030. I've been a long time stalker maybe 4 posts over the last 12 years, but now i'm coming out a little...i was one of the few folks back in 07 (I think) that got one of those infamous letters that identified me as making too many trades and I had to stop it! I'll be posting more regularly now compared to my old frequency so hope to get to know some of you better other than by the names and posts i've come to enjoy reading over the last 12 years or so!

    Welcome! Retirement is great. I have been retired 10 years now and still figuring out that I don't need to wait for the weekends to go places!

    I'm glad you kept your TSP account open. I cringe every time someone posts that they are going to pull out.

    I don't have a big balance, but I don't have to use it as I was CSRS.

    What is your investing strategy?

    Hey 2mo--no specific strategy for me...still banging out a paycheck...but i get to double dip and the 401 is nicely matched so no complaints...i'm hoping not to touch or barely touch tsp in the later years..im taking ss at 62 no matter what...i have a few projects that will keep me busy for the first year of real retirement after that....maybe explore other interests that have been put aside for 30 years...
