    Thus the results of that lovely 9% bump in SS monthly benefit for every year retirement delayed past "full SS benefit" retirement age. Also frozen pension benefit has to be recalculated to account for same amount of total benefit being spread out over fewer months. I don't know how calculation is done, but my pension (according to pension calculator app on Jetnet) "should" have been $515/month. (Due to post-9/11 furlough, I'm only credited with 15 years of service.) But I worked until age 72. My pension is about $650/month. A 26% increase over expected.

    good luck to both and thanks for sharing.

    united announced their earnings after today's bell and it was a super quarter for united. i'll just get to the profit sharing:

    for the recent quarter, united put $174 million into the year's running total and after 3 quarters, united is at $368 million for the year.

    united is $116 million ahead of last year's profit sharing pace.

    delta announced a few days earlier and deposited $577 million into it's year's running total and after 3 quarters, delta is at $1.256 billion for the year.

    delta is $265 million ahead of last year's profit sharing pace.

    over at aa, after 2 quarters, aa has put in $87 million for the year. we'll see how much aa will deposit into this year's running total next week. i'll guess around $70-$80 million.

    23 months and counting for me... Doesn't mean I'll stop working, but it will be refreshing to know that I could.
