My retirement application went before the state board last week and was approved. I am officially retiring on February 1. My last day of work will be January 30.
I am still in complete shock that the government processed this so quickly. I’ll be spending a lot of January finishing up projects, including a paper that I hope to submit to a journal by late February.
After I finish working I’ll have to start the social security disability application process, which should be another adventure.
