So...dh is doing good. We are in the process of filling out retirement paperwork. Now...an important decision needs to be made on whether to get the Survivor Benefit Plan insurance or not. It means the kids & I will receive retirement pay if something should happen to him. But, of course that will mean less retirement pay now in order to cover the SBP payments. I have no idea what to do? My parents, back when they had to decide the same thing - opted out of it. They are both still alive in their 80's. However, I think of damage done to husband's pancreas and wonder if it will heal completely or be scarred for life & fail him?
This isn't a subject anyone wants to think about...but the decision has to be made now (upon retirement). Can't get it later.
Have been praying & no clear answer yet.
What would you do?
