I took everything out within six months. Nice chunk of change...

Did they negotiate with you? Or was it a one sided offer?

There is no negotiation. My choices were to take a lump sum payment now or wait till my retirement and get a bigger chunk of change. I opted for lump sum payment.

Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away.

I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
