Insurance isn't really an option and monies spent would deplete the quality
of my life in retirement.  However, if I were to learn tomorrow I had a
terminal illness and only a few months/years to live, I'd move to Oregon and
make arrangements such that I could perfectly time my own death/suspension.<

I suspect that the Cryonics Institute would be the service provider of
choice. Moving to Detroit, Michigan at the last moment may be easier said
than done under the stress of the situation. I would suggest that you become
an option one member and if you really can't pre-pay or set up a trust where
you still get the income, then make some sort of arrangement with a really
trustworthy person (preferably a younger fully paid up cryonicist) to get
the money there at the time. Also locate a co-operating funeral director
locally - CI could probably help you with this. If after this you still find
you can move to Detroit at the appropriate time, then fine -- that would be
better. But if not, then at least you would have something in place.
