November 2011. 45th birthday.
Jan 2012 — to qualify for any 2011 bonuses.
March 2012 — when the firm’s payments start, for the return of capital and also for the partnership buyout. Maximum payment will be $5K/month for an unknown period of time. This doesn’t require me to be at the firm, but things may run more smoothly if I’m there, especially when payments are due to begin.
July 2012 — get COBRA health insurance coverage for the next 18 months, until Obamacare supposedly takes full effect in 2014.
