    If you're in, stay in. Keep buying ever-more worthless shares in ever-greater amounts to maintain your percentages, you're getting a bargain. Then when it reverses you'll climb out faster than you...

    Re: My retirement journey

    Dave, congratulations, you've earned it. I've been retired since 1/1/11 and have found it very easy to do, some readers here will recognize me. You have the leave -- they'll withhold 25% -- you have...

    Re: FEHB and Medicare ?

    Yeah, I just got my 600 clams the other day, straight to the vault! I kept BC/BS and took Medicare A & B. Next year the refund for overlapping coverage will go to $800. I go to the doctor, it costs...

    Hang in there, you are going to enjoy being Forecaster Emeritus when you retire. I did 25 years with NWS. I'd'a kept going but I was physically drained, it became a matter of the public safety....

    Re: FERS retirement at 62?

    60 or 62? You'll have to answer this question five years prior, in order to do what you gotta do in either case. I went at 60.

    I estimated a 20+% increase in my pension if I stayed to 62 but that...

    Re: 1099's From OPM?

    Thanks, guys, I'll be patient. And checking, I see now I did not get mine last year until after the 9th, the day I heard back from them with a form letter. Have a prosperous 2016!

    1099's From OPM?

    Will I get a 1099R from OPM or do I have go to their site to view it?
  10. Re: Retired guy needs some advice with rollover to ira.

    I rolled mine into a pre-existing traditional IRA, takes 30 days for OPM to notify TSP. You'll pay a fee but you'll get service. They'll give you a questionnaire to determine your risk level and go...

    Re: Medicare and FEHB

    Norm, you make a good point. For a long time you have been a heavy user of our health benefits. Were I able to say the same, I would certainly buy Part B. With BCBS Basic we pay hefty co-pays but get...

  14. Re: Stoplight's Retirement Story (FERS, Gap in Service, Military Buy-Back)

    PARTIAL rollover, I never considered that; I sent it all to the pros. It might've been fun to retain some in the TSP to play with.

    SS is nice isn't it. Mine equals OPM-FERS, they add up to...

    Re: nasa1974's retirement story

    Hey NASA, let the good times roll. No matter what you get from SSA numbers-wise, it will take ten years at FULL retirement before you show any 'profit' from not taking it at 62. That is, ten years...

    Re: ss supplement question

    Clog, congratulations, you made it! Don't worry about OPM, their wheels grind slowly but they will come through for you. Surely you expected delays and saved up a war chest? So what are your plans?

    Dynamite! But there goes your back-pay, I got a nice check for $7k when they finally caught it up after 9 months. How are you doing on your sleep schedule? Got the rotation out of your system?

    That reminds me, it was open season in December when I retired and I changed from BC Standard to Basic. That created a slight snag. I forget the details but it went through okay.
