It’s possible. It may not make sense…but under certain circumstances it could be a great move.

Recently, I wrote an article that covered this in depth. You can find it at Social Security and Lump Sum Pensions: What Public Servants Need to Know.

If you have further questions after reading this, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
