Only five months to go. Actually, it could be slightly longer since I have agreed to extend for up a little bit if necessary to ensure that there are no loose ends when I leave the office for the last time.
I have cancelled my term life policy (in spite of the paper-pushers at the insurance company to frustrate the process with their ineptitude). One less expense to inflict my bank account post retirement).
Medical insurance has been renewed for the year. I will not know until mid-year whether the insurance company will allow me to continue coverage post retirement. Against the possibility that they will not, I have opened a dialogue with an insurance agent regarding private coverage.
