Couldn't one of the math teachers tell them how much they were getting screwed? Or are the people going into education really that inept?

I'm sure that if Dad had the options we do today to invest in the market, that's where he would have been. As it was, the annuities they got through TIAA CREF gave them a surprise retirement at 58. Perhaps sooner had they been looking for it. It's what taught me the importance of planning for my retirement or FU money, whichever way you want to look at it, and started me planning my retirement at 19.

Planning is good, even if it's not perfect, it's better than nothing.
