      That is ghastly.

      In my case, it would help us sell the house and downsize/rightsize, as well as with the medical care I need.

        my case due to health I had to take SS early as I could not work and did not have health care for a while either. I'm lucky I can survive and have Medicare.

        I wish I had downsized by selling house earlier and living more cheaply when I still had some money. I kept thinking things would change, health improve, get a job, etc. But it didn't.
