I’m still on my LTD claim, but have considered early retirement… My insurer says they would just pay me out and close my claim. Otherwise they’re are starting me on a gradual return to work program in September which would run for 6 to 8 weeks. My question is can I change my mind and just put in for retirement or do I now have to do the program and return to work for awhile before putting in for retirement? I feel kind of between a “rock and a hard place” now. Though I appreciated having the insurance through my illness, I’d like to be able to free of them. I’m also seeing if my work will let me work part-time for awhile but this could effect my company pension.
You can change your mind.
I personally probably would try the return to work plan.
I understand being frustrated and wanting to rid yourself of that stress though.
At least you have options.
