  •  The retirement age has been 'tweaked' constantly (1+ / 0-)

    in recent years. You can still retire as early as 62; you just don't get 100% of the SS benefit that your last 40 quarters of work would have dictated unless you wait until later. You are still eligible for Medicare at 65.

    Sometimes it is advantageous to start taking your SS at 62 anyway, depending on your health. You can wait later, and get more per month--which might be a good gamble if you have excellent genes and everyone in your family lives to 95 or 100.

    Have you even researched the current state of SS retirement ages? There is no one, all-or-nothing age.

    Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.

      It doesn't matter to me if the retirement age is 60 or 90 and I don't drink COLA and I will vote for Obama because he is awesome.
