June 1, 2015 "official" retirement date. Though, I've been on LTD since September of 1999.
I will receive lump-sum check from MegaCorp shortly after July 1, with interest paid on lump-sum from June 1 to July 1. I plan to buy a Starbuck's coffee with the interest, if it is enough.
I could have stayed on full LTD until age 65, but the interest rate that governs my lump-sum was at a historical low, which made the lump-sum larger.
So, now I have to set an AA with the additional funds that will generate the retirement $$$ I'll need; most probably it will be exactly what I have now, 50% equity/50% bond.
Though, I am determined to wring out some of the complexity of our portfolio by reducing the number of funds we are using.
