just typing seems to be an issue because the tips are like the worst sunburn so just touching it hurts .

i had silent damage from diabetic neuropathy when it went undetected

Sorry to hear that. Keep up the good work!

anyone who has problems with that can just skip my posts .
That's how I do it on my iPad. One finger typing.

Sunaimer: Since you quoted my earlier post, I will respond that my back of the envelope and firecalc estimates included nothing additional for pre-Medicare, as the original poster indicated in her first post that the $6,000/month included healthcare. She may find that her healthcare cost estimate is low, but I wouldn't presume that without more information from her.

FWIW, I'm retired from a PERS job but work full time in the private sector now (private contractor, no benefits) and purchase my health insurance through the state employees retirement health insurance program. I pay >$600/month for middling insurance with a $4,000 deductible. Five years to Medicare for me.

A comparison of the Major HealthCare Sharing Ministries - MedicalCostShare.com

and medical tourism (as do 15m worldwide) 1.4m from USA alone, MOST are from Europe / and 'national-healthcare' countries

How much to 'save' for retirement?
my kids calculate $4m, and they will be 'free'

I originally thought $500k + paid off everything (that was before property taxes and Medical went up 500- 800%)

Then... I thought $1-1.5m would do. (won't quite cut-it with today's costs & 50+ yrs in retirement)

NOW... forget saving..., just replace your earnings with an inflation protected income stream and QUIT the J-O-B
sooner the better - Age 20 would have been about right! (And certainly possible... very EZ by age 30 (if double 'professional' income) if single... age 40 would be a reasonable time to accumulate and 'depart' employment. for GOOD!
