Dazed,

I didn't retire from USPS. My retirement finances are handled through the Defense Finance & Accounting System (DFAS).

How many years did you work under CSRS?

I guess you're just about as old as DDeath and me -- less maybe five years. No need to comment. I still refer to DDeath as the oldest fart here.

WestTx, I worked just under 40 years in CSRS, and then 13 years with the State of Oklahoma. I will be 73 in August if I make it that long. I am catching up to you and DDeath. :lol:

Dazed,

Good for you. Wow... I worked in the private sector for a number of years after I retired from the military. I had a brief period with USPS -- 1992 - 1998.

I'm guessing you probably fall under the windfall calculation for Social Security. Still -- it helps! From what I read, CSRS is golden for an annuity. My military retirement had a similar calculation, although back in my day, 30 years (1961 - 1991)provided a 75% annuity. I believe CSRS gives you 80% at approximately 42 years of service. Those days are gone...

Good for you @ 73 years. I hit 78 this year.

You old dawgs! :lol: I’ll be 78 in November....... maybe a few months younger than Tex.

I had forty years with USPS and with my accrued sick leave, got a bit more than 80% on my CSR. My supervisor pay gets me about $900 more per month than if I had remained a clerk. With the COLA, my monthly net annuity has grown almost 50% over the 19 years I’ve been retired. CSR has made me one lucky guy......... :D

Going to the Chicago Auto show in two weeks to see what my 2020 Caddy looks like. Might look at the XT4....... :P

Holy Shitz!

I hit 78 in August, so that makes me round about three months older than you. That ain't fair nor right... :evil:

A-OK on the 80% annuity confirmation. Nice... It sounds like all three of you olds farts are doin' OK!

I wish I could get up to the Chicago Auto Show. The Cadillac that sticks in my mind is the '62 Deville series. Jet black as my behine' :shock: Seriously, go ahead and make your purchase, and enjoy it. I recently looked at the 2020 Toyota Avalon:

See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU3jbIgRdiY

Very smooth ride, and I've been partial to Japanese cars for many years. At one time I had a '72 Honda N600 -- not out of character for me, gotdamit! The Avalon is really nice, and oh so smooth. I still prefer American trucks, so give me a little credit there.

Let me know what you decide on. Have you ever considered a Lincoln?

Tex, I remember growing up when anything “made in Japan” was considered cheap and flimsy! I know they make some really good cars, but I never owned any foreign car. I never wanted to send my dollars out of the country and always believed in MADE IN AMERICA! However, I do shop at Walmart for certain non-durable goods...... :oops:

I’ve had a GM rewards charge card since the 80’s and save $500 a year towards a new GM car every year. That’s why my last non-GM car was a 79 Mustang...... no big engine but it had 4 on the floor and T-Tops! :D

I am considering all GM smaller SUV’s when my current lease is up on August 1st..........
