    • Good Morning Barbara,I know US News loves Top 10 lists for everything and they are fun to look at.But, I would segugst that the top place to reinvent your life in retirement is where you live right now. Solving a motivational or inspirational problem by moving is probably not going to work. Reinventing your life is primarily an internal process.Moving to a a better climate or so you are closer to family does make sense. I live in Phoenix because I hate the cold!By the way, I’ve always wanted to try living in an RV for an extended period like you did. I just can’t convince my wife that it would be a good thing.

    • Hi! Let me answer the most imntpoart first. Contact the HR office at MxCC. They will help you with all the forms for retirement and decsions you must make. If you are in the State Retirement System, there are quite a few forms to fill out, and you will need some information all of which they will help you with. If you are in the Alternate Retirement System, or State Teachers Retirement System, they can still help you with information.You can certainly apply for retirement when you are 65, and yes, you can still teach when you are retired. The only change is that you can teach only 12 credits a year once you retire (6 per semester) otherwise the state unretires’ you! Good luck, and please join the 4C’s Retirees Chapter you can download the form right through this website!
