Take care and be safe....
Actually, Texas Municipal Retirement System allows for 20 yr retirement. My city provides some benefits at 20 yrs, but gives FULL benefits at 25 yrs. Some of my friends are almost at 30 yrs. My 6 yrs in the Marine Corps allowed me to buy 5 yrs of retirement. So if something should happen that I can't do the job anymore, I can retire at 15 yrs and 20 yrs benefits
. GRATEFUL FOR WHAT I GOT!!!! One of my friends had a nasty divorce. Our system down here gives HALF of your retirement to the ex-wife / ex-husband
. Well, she passed away and he immediately put in his retirement notice.
Stay safe, take care, and one of my goals is to visit Canada.
