I had lots to do today. Go up and worked on y school studies on the computer and too a couple of test. I need to get onto that early tomorrow so I do not get behind. Had some legal paperwork to fill out and called the company to make sure I was doing it correctly. I worked for a company back in the 90s for 7 years. I had a small 401 K that I rolled over when I could. There was a pension plan that was a small payment. I got the bankruptcy papers from the company and was informed that all benefits were wiped out. Well a couple of weeks ago I got paperwork that I had a small pension and needed to apply so I could get paid. No lump sum but I could draw a check monthly until I pass. My choice was did I want to leave any to Hubby. I chose 100% participation for him. I will get my check (a smaller sum to include him, but really that much) We had to get to the credit union to get it notarized and they faxed it for us. It was like found money. We laughed thar if we get in a bind it will pay our electric bill. But in the meantime as I did not know I was getting it I am putting it into a savings account I have lived without it and we do not know what is going to happen with Hubbys company so many layoff etc. Hubby told me to take it and spend on me but I told him if he has a job all the way to his retirement, I will take what is in the account for a special vacation that he wants A cruise to Alaska

I just feel there is so much financial unrest that we need to set this unplanned mony aside for necessities if needed
