I'm retiring in about 2 months with a pension. The survivor benefit was a maximum of $777. Based on how much my pension would be reduced, this is what I'm doing.

I'm taking the full benefit.

I'm getting a life insurance policy for much more than $777 times 25 at a much cheaper cost then it would cost me for my reduced pension.

I started this board a long time ago. I'm glad to see posts are picking up so much.

Fool on,
