- Evaluating an early retirement offer
Is that offer to retire early as good as it looks? Make sure that you review the offer carefully before you accept or reject it. Is the severance package enough to carry you into the next phase of your life? If you accept, what will happen to your retirement benefits, and will your pension be smaller? Is adequate medical coverage included? What happens to the other benefits you were getting, such as life insurance? You'll want to map out your complete financial picture before making a final decision.
