  • Post Retirement Pensions

    We were talking at work the other day about how lucky were still are to have defined benefit retirements. The question came up about retiring at age 50 vs. age 55, etc. One person suggested that if an officer were to retire at age 50 and go work for another government employer, even if the salary were lower, it would be more advantageous than staying with the current employer because they would be getting:

    -A Pension Annuity, and

    -A Salary

    It sounds to me like it is comparing apples to oranges, but I would love to hear from coppers that have retired at age 50, but then gone top work for another government employer, is it as sweet as it sounds? How do you determine if it is more advantageous to stay where you are vs. retiring, drawing a pension, AND another salary?

    Absolutely.....it's called double dippin


    Very common occurrence
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

      You see it a lot in the feds with military guys. They retire from the military and then get a federal job.

        You're gonna see that with me when I retire from my fed job (pretty soon) and go to work for a state or county.

          Ah! Double-dipping!

          My county pension goes right to the bank and my federal salary buys what I need and my toys...
