I believe that people should act as if that money put into SS never existed. I think of it like taxes. I don't intend to live on it. I hope to have it as a bonus to be more comfortable. I do know someone who ran to collect at 62 and immediately quit working without a penny ever saved and it annoys me greatly. This person is fully capable of working, and ironically, could have drawn more had they waited. I don't think stretching it to 69 is a concern considering the life span is much longer than when this plan was started. It is a bummer, but it does not require people work until that moment. Have a P-L-A-N!!!

People don't HAVE to work until they are 69 or even 65. All they have to do is make smart choices and have a plan. Heck I am looking at retiring when I am 50. I have worked my butt off since I was 15. I made smart choices and I have a plan. I am not special. I just made up my mind to do something and I have very nearly accomplished it. I think they should raise the age to 70 AND I think they need to make serious changes to the way people pay in AND I think people should have the choice to opt out..on the taxes and the later payments.
