Delaying retirement


Q: I’m eligible to retire in January but am considering working a little longer. With the current federal employment climate, is there any danger in delaying, or should I get out while I can?

A: If I examined the entrails of a goat, I might be able to predict the future. Since I won’t, I can’t.
