Incidentally, there's actual "early disability retirement." in which you draw a pension from your former employer, and then there's just plain SSI disability, into which you haven't paid... Not to split hairs...

Yes, but in terms of legitimately calling it "retirement," I mean.

I suppose, though, you could purchase and cash in on a disability insurance policy without ever having worked, in which case I wouldn't term that "retirement." Anyway!

the one he got was a company sponsored plan that we paid for through the company . it paid you 80% of your pay if you could not work in your job slot . being out of work or not having a job was not grounds for collecting .

the insurer was pretty strict about qualifying his disability .

I retired at 55 and the I only butt I experience is along the beach of SW Florida. You sound as if you need to work another year. You'll know when you're ready. It took me about a week to get used to it.

the worst is when you retire from a job with good pay and good benefits only to take a low level job with crappy pay and the worst hours


but the best part is when you think your old job was stressful only to find you are now the new guy on some grunt supervisors radar watching your every move .
