Disability or 4 more years?


Q. I am four years away from retirement at the Postal Service. However I have Parkinson’s disease, and I don’t know if I can hang in there. Any advice on whom I can contact regarding my options and what is best? Disability or trying to hang in there until 2016?

A. Continuing to work will produce a better financial result. The real question is whether the financial improvement is worth the suffering, and only you can make that decision. I can show you what the additional work will mean to you in terms of your lifetime standard of living. Visit www.variplan.com if you’re interested in contacting me.
