  1. If I am reading this right, looks like $77,500 for 1/1/18 through 6/30/18; $155,000 7/1/18 through 6/30/2019. That equals balance of his contract = $232,500. Retirement at 6.7% = $15,578. Unused vacation time = $10,433 and relocation payment = $10,000. That is approximately $268,000 more or less. Plus the actual cost for insurance contribution under COBRA not specified in the agreement.
