Right now (I'm 56) I'm struggling a little bit to figure out if I should just retire or if I'm in the "last gasp" of my career.If you are financially able to retire, I'd say if offered a package consider it carefully.I was on the cusp of being financially able to retire when I accepted a package. But I found job opportunities. I signed up with a temp agency. They placed me. That job became permanent. I retired three years later.Your experience makes you valuable especially if you have your own health insurance. Universities like to hire adjunct professors to teach some courses. Real world job experience can be a selling point.I'm a chemist. I signed with Kelly Scientific, the Kelly Girl people. Today temps are available for a wide variety of professions. And I found the pay negotiable and attractive.When the time comes, an attractive job offer could make the difference.
