  • Early retirement versus full retirement

    Asked by a 45 year old woman from North Beach, MD on 1/20/2014

    How much of a monetary difference there between retiring after 15 years of teaching versus 30 years of teaching? I currently make $80K and can make about $96K after 30 years.

  • Pensions increase both with the number of years you work and any wage increases, so I would guess you would get something between 2 and 2.5 times as much unless the school forgoes pensions in the meantime. You should contact your school's human resource representative to get a better number.
