Long story short - if I wait 8 more years to retire from the feds, I will be eligible to continue healthcare in retirement, at the same price, with the same benefits I received as a full time employee.
Healthcare is the single biggest factor in my own plans. Being able to extend current insurance during retirement or a second career sounds like a great buffer against possible future expenses. I'd be willing to wait a few years to lock that in.
I know the GOP is hot for dismantling Obamacare, but it's unlikely they'll get the 60 votes needed to survive a filibuster.
If Obamacare remains in place, even a millionaire retiree could get full health coverage for a few thousand dollars a year.
