Sooo... another year,, I'm 67 now, drinking Tequila that was a gift from my friend John.
I'm not happy, but I'm older, a bit wiser and still healing from a fall and broke leg in August.
I miss the old guard of forum members,
Grapeshot, Peter Nap, SkidMark, Deros72
that is all.....
Mine was done on the phone with no hitches. I went at 62 because over the long hall you get more.Did you have much "fun" going on Medicare or was it a paperwork nightmare? And, now that you have reached your FRA, have you started SS or are you holding out for the max at 70?

Well, if that is true then I hope I loose the bet.According to the tax lawyer I asked, that is only true if you die before 78 y.o. You don't get as much of an increase when SS gives us a COLA, we get the same amount deducted for Medicare regardless of when retirement benefits started, and that makes the "break even" point around 77-77.5 y.o.
I went early as well due to medical problems that made it difficult to find an employer that would take a risk on me.
Happy Birthday Defender and congrats on making it to another one. Is that a single malt you're having or a "blended" Scotch?
And "on the rocks" or "neat"?
I'm a little late to this thread. Didn't see it in 2012... Hope you're still kicking some ass! I plan on wishing you HB this December 3rd. ~Beretta92FSLadysingle malt, neat!
i dont know who makes it, cosco sells it under the kirkland label, supposed to be good stuff.
i think my 12 year olds taste better.
