NPR seeking input from our community

NPR has contacted us looking for some background info on a story they're putting together on forced or unexpected Early Retirement.

They are specifically seeking folks in their early 60s who ended up retiring early after a layoff, not because they wanted to, but because they couldn’t find other work.
This article will be examining possible impacts to the Social Security System by folks who begin drawing at 62 rather than waiting as well as how individuals decide whether to start drawing on Social Security at 62, rather than waiting until 65 or 66.

If you are interested in contributing to this story in some way please contact
Tamara Keith, Reporter at National Public Radio.
desk: 202-513-2761
blackberry: 202-997-4446

While we have dozens of discussions about this topic, they don't serve as interview material and so having members make the choice to contact NPR directly seemed the best course.
