I’ve pondered heavily with retiring early but am not sure what to do. I’m scared to death about the high cost of medical insurance and honestly this is probably holding me back more than anything else.
What do you do for medical insurance when faced with an early retirement? I’ll be able to obtain Cobra for two months after I’m eliminated, and just like the market place insurance, it’s expensive.
I guess what I’m trying to ask is how do you fill the gap between early retirement when it comes to medical insurance but prior to Medicare?”
