Thanks for the update Sandy.
Wishing you all the best for the remainder of the chemo and moving forward.
I was told the same amount of years by my oncologist in January 2017.
He was cagey though, he said it could be less, it could be more.
Like you I am looking at giving up work to enjoy life more as my job takes so much out of me I have nothing left in the tank.
Lyn’s advice is sound as usual.
I spoke to a financial advisor through my professional association and have a personal financial advisor too.
My in service death grant is 3X salary plus a pension of 30% salary for my wife.
Whereas if I take my pension early I will drop to 30% of my salary plus lump sum with my wife only getting a small proportion of that if I pop my clogs. I seriously thought, and sometimes still do, staying on at work for the better widow’s Pension for Sandra.
To my wife and I it is about quality of life.
We have no mortgage now so it makes it a bit easier.
Good luck with treatment and looking at giving up work.
