    Squint No more work for me!

    For years as an employee I've been told how great my benefits are when visiting doctors and such. After seeing what will be our benefits, I can now see just how much I will miss them. I changed my plan in October a few years back to take advantage of some added benefits before I retired. After retiring for $50/month I was getting a bargain I suppose. Now it's a wake up call. I can see that some people with enough years put in to retire just after Aug. 1st may just be a fantastic option. Seems my old local is trying to get a raise in the retirement and the way I read it, they would have a 4 month window to put their papers in for retirement to take advantage of this extra money AND get a better health plan, i.e. $500,000.00 lifetime benefits versus $200,000.00 among other extras like kids being covered until they are 19 or 25 if in school.

    What are some of your thoughts?

    $500,000.00 lifetime benefits vs $200,000.00 per year per person.

    They are talking about retiree health plan ... unfortunately, those can have limits under Obama care.
    I had planned to have my quadruple bypass before I retired but it did not happen.
