I`m going to wear it, title of OLD MAN now fits like a glove. I`m going to my first appointment to the Social Security office today at 1:30. My 62nd birthday is end of August so Uncle Trump is giving me benefits beginning in September. Not sure how to act getting help from the government, but maybe I`ll get used to it! :D

Nahhhh, Trump don't need it. The crooks that started dragging our ante and tossing in I.O.U.s to "balance the books" have made it increasingly necessary for you 62 yo kids to work full tilt till you're 70 so those of us that preceded you will not be left twisting in the financial winds.
Ain't it funny how they talk abt SSec running out of $$ but not the plethora of Welfare Programs?

Old folks

I've been old for a long time, have enjoyed it most of the time, haven't had a single regret about retirement and look forward to doing even more of the things I enjoy.

I kinda feel sorry for folks who are not old yet----don't think their old age world will be as easy as before.

I'd suggest old folks spend less time counting birthdays and try harder to enjoy the things they like.

The best to all the veterans and rookies of old age.

Mistake!

Don't go to the office! Do it online. You will waste a lot of time dealing with folks who can't help you.

Make sure you have run all the calculators to figure for the different classes/times. Like what is the difference of benefit between from full and early retirement, How much you can earn without paying extra tax or a reduced benefit. Also to watch for any weird loop-holes that can be screw you up, and make sure you have copies of everything important. Get names and phone numbers of anyone you talk with, whether in person or on the phone. Take good notes and any decisions made.

In my area of FL you want to be standing at the SS door when the guard opens it. The never worked loafers and other takers don't get out bed before 1100-1200hrs and the joint fills up until close.

The guard gave me that tip on my visit -truth.

The staff at my SS office know their stuff and I have found them helpful -80 now,started drawing at 62.

Best.

SS

I made an appointment before I went to sign up. Good thing. The waiting room had probably 300 people and it was obvious I was the only one who had paid in enough to legitimately earn a benefit. There was some grumbling from the crowd when my name was called about 5 minutes after I arrived. I was in and out in about a half hour and felt sorrow for whoever had to take care of the mob.

Also remember, they will not withhold taxes from your benefit unless you ask them to. It is taxable income!

I signed up on line and my wife did also. It was fairly easy, lady took all my information and that was that. No sense in traveling to an local office if you don't need to.

I AM INTITLED TO IT.
I am sick and tired of people making out like it is a government hand out like Welfare.

You're right Tom and welcome aboard. If you paid into the plan, you are entitled to the benefit. Lots of folks, including our friends in the media, often misuse the word.

… and that bothers me a great deal. The money you and I paid in has already been subject to income tax once, and now it is subject to income tax a second time as a social security benefit.
