Re: Early retirement and Social Security
Because of my health, I figure age 75 for me (I use 80 for planning purposes), probably 95 for DH. We're planning on collecting SS at 62 (especially me)--unless (heaven forfend!) he's still working. If his employer weren't a state college, maybe he could do a deal like teach one semester per year just for the health insurance. Think I'll find a way to approach him on that...
You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need.
