    Default Well It's time to retire

    I have decided to go ahead and retire at age 56. My private disability claim was approved so now I have to sell my business. It's bittersweet since I have been an Allstate agent for 34 years but it's time to hang it up.
    I hope to be able to do volunteer work in my community but my DR said no to volunteering in medical facilities due to my immune system.
    I am thankful that approval for the long term disability through my private carrier took less than 30 days.
    Onward into a new chapter in my life.

    Victor

    Thanks my health is OK I will have a permanent trach and loss of lung function but I can still do little thing just the stress and pressure of running a business got to be too much. I have 2 grand children that live within 20 miles of me so I am going enjoy each and every moment with them and hopefully do a bit of traveling.

    welcome to retirement. I found that I got 2x busier after ret. Enjoy your g-children. I live on the same property as my grandchildren and get to enjoy them every day. I go to baseball with a 7yr old, and to martial arts class with a 9yr old. remember to wash your hands and dont touch your face.
    Now go out and enjoy every single day.

    I know it was probably a very hard decision to make, but it is the best one to make. I had to shut my business down five years ago, at age 54. I have been able to stay out of the hospitals a lot more, because of not being in the public. I really think that not having the stress of being self employed, has saved my life. I am glad that you are going to have more time to enjoy life and take good care of yourself. I'm wishing you all the best with your retirement.

    I am not jealous of what ANY of us are going through, but I am jealous of the retirement!

    Hope you find a good person for your agency Victor!!

    Congratulations on your decision Victor and I look forward to reading about new adventures/chapters in your retired life.

    I'm with Mikeg, just a little bit jealous
