    Default I got my first Social Security check this week!!!

    Ran the math...and figured out that it was best for me to take it at age 62 at a discounted rate rather than wait till the full retirement age. Also, if I wish at full retirement for SS, I can return all I collected and receive SS at the higher rate. I'm also thinking that if I waited to collect and unfortunately died in the interim all my contributions .......... were GONE!

    Now I can buy more bee equipment!

    For those of you still contributing to SS, I appreciate all your hard work to keep those checks flowing to ..........me!!

    Thanks again,

    Larry

    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    ha,ha,ha,ha,ha. Good one Charlie.

    Larry, why don't do like NY City Mayor Bloomberg did w/ all of his paychecks? He framed them and never cashed them.

    Congratulations, you are still getting older.

    Unfortunately (for me) Mayor Bloomberg has got just a wee bit more than I and can afford not to cash his checks. Me, I need to buy more beekeeping equipment!

    Thanks for the congrats & yes getting older.......... it seems like only yesterday when I was a kid playing basketball with my brothers in the back yard. My how time flies!

    And did you think the other scenario through where you live to an old age and run out of funds?
