I'm comfortably retired for two years now, and if I can be of any indication (granted, I'm older ... 66) ... I'd have a hell of a time going back top work now.

Two years of sufficient retirement money is enough for me to say f*** it

The only difference is, the unemployment money runs out a lot sooner than SS and my investment.

Even if a factory job opened up right next door and paid $15 an hour ... I don't know if I COULD get back into the race.

Again, I'm older and no one expects me to go back to work (least of all me), but a younger guy that's been off for a year or more ?

God, give them strength

Love Sun News. Some brilliant minds - little wonder they’re always under attack.

I’m retired now for two years also. Took SS early and pull from my 401K when needed. Also am “Retired But Working” at my old job for fill-in needs, limited to 49% time though.

Thankfully, most of the fill-in work assigned to me allows me to complete it at home sot that’s a big, big plus after having driven over 120 miles a day R/T when working full time.

That said, if I were offered the opportunity to come back full-time, I’d have to decline it.

It sounds like the story of my life, except it's only been one year. I also drove 189 miles RT for 17 years. Wore out two cars and got started on another.

PS; I am going back for one week, next week. I hope I can make it>>>
