As many of us do this time of year, I'm cleaning house. I thought that a good thing to do in my first column of 2008 would be to organize the past two years of Retirement Planning columns in a useful way. After reviewing the questions that readers post each week in the comments section, I know that many answers can be found in a previous column.Pick an old favorite or a topic that you wish to learn more about from the list below and -- as my mother used to say at the end of one of her favorite recipes -- "Enjoy!"Best Date to Retire Deciding to Retire Things to Do to Get Ready Sick Leave/Annual Leave Service Credit Issues Survivor Benefits Law Enforcement and Special Groups Eligibility and Computation of CSRS and FERS Other CSRS and FERS Retirement Issues Post-Retirement Health Insurance Medicare Life Insurance Long-Term Care Social Security Thrift Savings Plan Cost of Living Adjustments Pension Protection Act and Taxes What would you like to learn about in 2008? If there is a topic related to retirement planning that you want me to write about (or write more about, or write about in a different way), let me know in the comments section -- I'm all ears.
