Retirement is on the Horizon
Today, I finally discussed it with DBF. Why, you ask, did I not do this before now? Well, to be honest, I had to decide what I really wanted and what I really thought, before getting into that conversation. I thought it would be a difficult one, but it was not. When I brought it up, he immediately told me to "do it. It's a no-brainer."
If I go ahead and convert my air time to real years of service, then I'll be eligible to retire and walk away in January of 2013. But I'll also have the option to just enter DROP in January of 2013, which would allow me to make my money back and then some if I work 9 more months while still maintaining the ability to walk away whenever I want to. And even better, when the legislature brings up the retirement bills again, I would be beyond it.
