      "Many others choose to continue working.

      Whereupon if we are drawing Social Security benefits, we get penalized.

      You read that right.  In a society in which we emphasize the importance of working, if we continue to work while drawing Social Security we are penalized for doing so."

      I added the clarification because  someone who read just this was confused... panicked... sent a note to me with lots of question and exclamation marks...

      I assured the poor fellow that at 66 he could continue to drag his po ass to work everyday and not have SS cut.
