    Terrific!  I am now looking forward to a very long, wonderful retirement!
    I hope to be collecting my Social Security I worked for, for as long as I can.

    How does this newfound technology fit into the old equation of SS? It doesn’t, and needs a ‘correction’ along with figuring out the long term healthcare costs. We were only expected to live 5-6 years of retirement when it was first designed. It hasn’t remained static.

    The people who’ve paid into SS their ENTIRE working lives are just now starting to cash in (with the promise of living longer because of our increasingly costly doctor bills), plus the Boomers are more likely to have been smokers along with all the unhealthy lifestyle and occupational hazards we are now aware of. It needs rethinking, and fast!
