Last week I applied to benefits becuse I am almost 62. Many people critize SS but no one who is near or at eligibility. It really is a great feeling that there is a program that will help us this much. I always said I wish I had the money sooner while my kids were little and I was always broke. Don't say that now.

You guys are too young to know the uncertainty of reaching a time when you can no longer provide for yourself or your spouse. I'm not there yet but getting there. So it relieves my fears.

And yes I have a good reitrement which I paid for at a 6% rate my entire working career, but with health care costs so high, it is not enough to sustain our normal standard of living. This guarentees it.

Just feel good about it and wanted to share.

Congrats Sub. You sound a lot like my dad who retired a few years ago. I'd still rather be given the option to invest my money privately.
