Howdy folks,
My wife will retire from teaching in about 6 yrs.
She is 48 yrs. old at present.
When she retires she has the option of taking the
accumulated retirement monies in one big check or
wait and when 62 or 65 yrs. old she can start the
checks coming.
I'm wondering if we couldn't take the lump cash and
invest it and come out further ahead in the long run
than wait til retirement and have it doled out to us
for the rest of our lives at welfare wage levels.
We think taking the money and investing it for more
potential money earnings in the market than playing it safe and leaving it to be parted out when we retire.
We realize that it is a throw of some good dice, but
none-the-less a throw of the dice.
Thanks for your reply!
Aloha, Bob
