Wow, you sure waited to start your savings/investing programs?
In addition to the $72,000 pension, will you get a SS pension? (If you were a civil servant, the double-dip rule might come into effect).
To clarify - do you have mandatory retirement in the next year? Or can you stay where you are? Is the new $6000/m offer more than your current income?
Single? Kids? Does spouse work?

Investments. Plenty of them keep in mind to decide if you have a personal interest in a certain niche. How about stocks, silver or real estate? Many boomers also decide to set up a business which have been planned for so many years but weren’t made possible due to the demands of an 8-5 office job. But make sure to plan ahead and educate yourself on whatever industry you choose.
