According to TV, I have to worry about shingles since I had chicken pox.
Listen up TV, I just had my roof replaced!

What the fuck is a pension?

Shit, I was never under the allusion I was going to be taken care of by a corporation, or
govt entity in any form. I trade my time for $$. The rest is up to me.

I have a pretty sweet pension. Employer contributes $1.24 for every $1.00 I put in. Defined contribution, indexed to inflation.

Still not going to rely on it. Have my own savings plan.

Not uncommon. A vaccine is an attenuated version of the real deal. It works by eliciting an immune response, which is why you might feel crappy for a few days - your body thinks it's encountered the real deal, even though it hasn't.

We don't have 401k's here, we have TFSA and RRSP (Tax Free Savings Account and Registered Retirement Savings Plan). Neither has employer matching IIRC.

TFSA = no tax on gains made on invested funds in account
RRSP = amount contributed in the year is deducted from your income when determining income taxes owed

Both have limits that I can't quite remember. I have an auto-deposit each payday for a reasonable amount that gets split between the two. Up to $15000 from RRSP can be used for a first-time home purchase as well.

Luckily I snuck out while company retirements were in vogue..  I pulled 4 retirements and an investment fund..  Still have a tidy sum in my company 401K.  But the guys at work have had their company retirement froze.  Now they just get the 401 K match..  Nice thing is they can take it with them when they leave the company.  Me I had to keep track of everywhere that owed me retirement funds.. Company retirements are going the way of the Dodo..

Definitely. Not many folks my age have a pension option. Girlfriend is a teacher and I'm in healthcare, two of the few arenas that seem to offer them.

Healthcare is an interesting math paradigm for me (got certified as an EMT when I retired since it is fun to ride around with lights and sirens, and go into people's houses and look at their shit). I found emergency medicine to be highly scripted all the way up to and through the hospital ER where there are real doctors. There is no thinking involved. As I was told by my instructors many times, if you have to think you are likely to screw up - follow the fucking script. Which comes back to the math. Emergency medicine uses a minimax algorithm - forget about optimality. You do what is least likely to result in a bad outcome. Of course medical people are notoriously poor mathematicians. The script has evolved by trial and error looking at 10's of thousands of episodes, but it is a very very good script (do I need to segway into my fondness for Monte Carlo?). I don't find myself thinking at all - just know your equipment inside and out, and follow the fucking script.

tmex ems axiom - "Try to be sure that the worst thing that happens to a patient happened before you arrived."

Hopefully this pans out :
I got 20 credits built up
[url=https://flic.kr/p/FMf647]
13 years of pumping concrete with boom pumps
we all heard the "jokes" about how you only get 3 checks and then get checked out by the black ops operators
Federal Social Security could be headed that way too "early retirement" could take on a whole new meaning under medicare....I notice how they sure are eager to push that.
I know Im just being paranoid Suspect

Fair assessment. Priority number 1 is "Don't fuck up, follow procedures". Once you get to the specialists things get a bit more interesting.

I work in cancer clinical trials, so the MD's I'm around are have a more statistical bent than is probably the norm.
