Short answer is my magic number is 14 years and 7 months. That's when I'll have exactly 20 years on my job and I'm eligible for early retirement. Since I'm in the process of buying 4 more years of military time that will count towards my pension, I should get a pension for 24 years of service, which is very close to the full retirement pension of 25 years.Whoops, one other thing I forgot to mention in my previous post is that after 20 years on the job, we also get what's called the law enforcement supplement which is currently about $9,000 a year on top of our pension. This supplement will be paid until such a time that we start drawing Social Security.Since Social Security, along with all of my possible defined pension plans are subject to change, I'll keep plugging away with my savings and investments.
