Has anyone taken a pension (say, in an annuity) and continued to work part-time? It's a possibility in my job in several years. Part of me thinks it's crazy to choose to make less money while relatively younger (as I likely can't ramp up when old/older) and part of me wants OUT.
I think I could do it in about six years, but it might not be wise.

I am getting out early by cashing out my house in an expensive part of the country and moving to a lower COL area. I plan on buying a less expensive house and living off the difference for a couple of years before taking SS or tapping 401k funds. Healthcare coverage will be one of the big costly issues. I am definitely not planning on working part time. If I work at all it will be doing something entirely different with a money making hobby.
