I'm a teacher considering retirement.

My options are:

Option A: 80% of salary - no survivor benefit for wife
Option C: 65% - with survivor benefit (2/3 of my 65%)

Financial planner suggests Option A and buying insurance policy to provide survivor benefit for wife.

Does "Pension Maximization" with an insurance company make sense???

Thank you.
