28. Fortunately, I work for a very large corporation,
so the group insurance is very good. I have health insurance, eye care, dental and life insurance. And I only pay $48 a month. But I am close to retirement age and will have to continue to work for a while so that I can continue to receive these benefits. I have a fantastic and fun job, so I really don't want to leave it. The pay is lousy, but the benefits are great. All kinds of holidays, lots of vacation time, sick leave and bonus days off.
