Presently I managed to retire early because I qualified for my company’s defined benefits pension plan. After 30 years and 60,000 hours it was a long time coming. The closer I got to the 60,000 hours the more anxiety I had that I would not make it, due to lay offs and work options getting less and less.
Finally I got the hours and was laid off at 59 1/2 so I had 6 months before I got my pension at 60. Then I got seriously sick, which is another story.
Now I am concerned about if my pension will be there in the future with all this worldwide economic problems.
