5 things to consider before retiring from OPG or any defined benefit pension plan:
Taxes: The most tax efficient time to retire if you are taking any lump sum is January.
Cash Flow: If you have taken a lump sum and paid off debt, your monthly cash flow needs are usually less. Know what your cash flow needs are now and in the future.
Time: What are you going to do with the time you previously spent working? It’s a lot of hours to fill. Have a plan.
Medical Coverage: Know how to keep your medical coverage.
Spouse: Make sure your spouse is on board with your decision to retire. This affects you both in different ways.
