TS - retired teacher

    You are right. If you have a full benefit (not reduced
    because of lack of years) your monthly retirement pension
    will be very close to your take home pay while teaching.In addition to that good news, I found a fun way to
    supplement my pension. Send me an email and I will be glad
    to share.
