Hey, if this cancer gets me can I...

Marry some gal just before I die and give her the SS benefits?

I want my SS benefits to go to someone. They took lots of money over the years. I wouldn't mind giving it to a total stranger just as long as it's who I want to have it.?

You are probably joking, but in case you are serious, remember that someone who would do this may also make a run for your assets. Not sure whether you would care, but you may have other goals for them.

Ha,
not kidding much. I will probably not see SS and that really gauls me. How can I get that money in someone's pocket?

It's money that I paid in and I'll give it to anyone should my time be ending.
The 401k is worrisome too.

Life, to hell with it.

In a word, OAP, bullsh*t.

Take care of your self, get through your surgery (they would not be operating if they thought you had one foot in the grave), and recover. Stop worrying about your frickin social security and get ready to live life again. Maybe you have 2 years, maybe you have 30 years. In the end you can say the same for any of us.

Today I saw at least half a dozen patients who had cancer surgery more than 8-10 years ago and were doing just fine, thank you.

That said, I'll be glad to marry you. How much are the benefits?

Re: Hey, if this cancer gets me can I...

Rich,
Renal Cell Carcinoma (Clear Cell) Stage One ( no alternatives than surgery). Surgery was problematic with fistulas (heavy blood clots and baldder involvement) and spots in lungs. Since that time lots of weight lost.

Newly reduced 31 inch waist on nearly 6 ft tall, 56 year old man. Cool.

Whatever I live will be a riot, that's just me. But I hate to leave anything on the table. Trying to figure out how to get all that money that was put away. Somebody can use it.

In my case SS just goes back to Uncle Sam. Damn shouldn't someone else have that.

Re: Hey, if this cancer gets me can I...

OAP, if it helps, the money you paid in is going to someone: all those widows, orphans and elderly for whom life would be MUCH bleaker than without SS. SS taxes I am not thrilled about, but I can stomach since they keep a LOT of people above the poverty line. Now all that military spending and bridges to nowhere...

Re: Hey, if this cancer gets me can I...

OAP has a legitimate thought. To me, the question might be: 1) a pre-nuptial that would ensure everything he does own goes to who he wants it to go to, and then 2) marry in time to assign SSBs to surviving spouse.

Might be worth one or more of you American folks checking that out. Could be of value to many single pensioners who monitor this forum!

What a bummer!! *You should have two missions: take care of you and take care of other business.

Under these circumstances forget the T-Mobile bill. *If your assetts are well situated then they will have a hell of a time collecting.

SS Survivors Benefits: Married for 7 years and be age 60, disabled or have minor children. Good thought though, now if'n ya don't want to pay the medical bills, we can get married and add you to my employer plan!

How about lifesize Rambo blowup doll and silk whip. Belonged to the ex-lady friend.

OAP,
I asked a "relative" of mine who retired from the ss department about your situation. The only qualification is that you have to be married a year in order for your "wife" to get your ss check. I then joked around and said "or you can just get a fake marriage license that's backdated." She said you could because ss doesn't check. Ah our govern't and it's citezens working hand in hand. :

Arif,
I've always figured a smart person could outwit 99% of the government and it's employees.

As an 18 year old, I was working after school and on weekends. The IRS audited my meager $4000 return. I lost most of my respect for our government that day. Never regained it.
