I take it he had to retire, not trying to pry.

I would have a hard time finding enough to do on a day to day bases if I retired today.
Now if I won the lotto and buckets of money so I could go on trips to different parts of the world take pictures of wild life I will probably work till I am just to old to.

No you're fine. Not prying at all....

Yeah I think his offers peaked for buyout/retirement. He was seeing where the offers could start to diminish so he took them up on the offer.

He also got a $25k voucher for the purchase of a new GM vehicle that once taxes were paid it was more like $15k...

My dad worked for Bell Helicopter and did the same thing when he was 59 because they offer him a lot of the other older employees early retirement.

I would like to think that they will be able to recoup a lot of that money when they do their taxes for 2010.
