    My three deceased grandparents lived to 94-96, and my maternal grandmother is still in good shape at 97. I figure the odds of me going past 90 are high, which reading this thread feels like more curse than blessing. Maybe I'll take up wingsuiting in retirement....

    If you assess the odds of you or your spouse living older than 85, be sure to have enough savings/retirement to allow you to wait until 70 to take SS

    Nor do I, and it's a very remote possibility. Nobody in my family has made it past 86. No male in my family has made it past 82.

    I haven't paid into SS for almost 20 years. Although I did work more than the 40 quarters required to receive it, I know my amount is greatly reduced due to my state pension. From what I understand, my wife's SS payout is also reduced, for being married to me, although I can't find anyone who can tell me definitively how much hers is reduced. So I'm not really planning on it much, but whatever we get, I may start taking at 62.

    ^^^^exact same...it’s a killer...every extra cent for the next 4 years will go to this....all of our “savings” is basically in a 403B, Roth and the kids 529 plans...just to get them through without huge loans.

    You're on a government pension? If so, the applicable rule is called the Government Pension Offset.

    I'm in a similar boat. I have paid enough into SS to have a decent benefit amount, but it will be somewhat reduced if I continue with the state. I'm not counting on SS, but it will help.

    Yes. Found an online calculator: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/gpo-calc.html

    I'll have to dig into that a bit. Quick look shows that her "spouse's benefit" is reduced, but what about what she has earned in benefits?

    Edit: Seems that WEP also comes into play?

    5-6 percent is over double the inflation rate. There is no fucking way they are getting that much. No one would, or should, invest in them if they were.



    No doubt the small guys have higher fees.I think the new secure act has some provisions allowing smaller companies to band together now and utilize better volume for better rates.
    Google that. They are charging that much, probably because they have stupid or skimming trustees.

    If I had to guess, I'd say they started with the long palindrome in the bridge, and worked their way out from there.

    I wouldn't have thought I would have to explain this to a smart guy like you but the funds aren't marketed to the general public, only to the medical group. However the individual stocks and bonds in the funds are normal exchange traded stocks and bonds anyone can buy.

    Edit--Jimmy Carter said the same thing about 3 pages back. (Talk about someone who refuses to die.)

    At 69 I am the oldest male on my father's side of the family for 4 generations. My dad died at 51, GF in his 40's, my younger brother at 50, and I have a living brother 2 years younger but he had a heart attack at 35. Now my dad's sister lived into her 80's but she had severe dementia for many years. I think my dad was the lucky one. (They lived longer on my mother's side; too long in fact.)

    Ok, then, that sounds like thousands of 401k plans.

    The progression of the sequence always resonated with me. A mother calling her offspring a son of a bitch to the snake head eating the head on the opposite side makes "I palindrome I" all the palindrome they needed. Sure, racecar, ABBA and "able was I ere I saw Elba" are longer than one letter, but nothing can match "I palindrome I" for emphatic self-reference.



    (Sorry boomers.)

    I agree. Flood and Apollo 18 were both quirky, cheeky, clever albums.

    Never said it wasnt. You started this food fight by claiming bs when I said my expense ratio was zero unlike your purported 4-5%. I was simply explaining how mine worked. You seem determined to keep an argument going over something, anything. Go fuck yourself.

    I’ve always pictured Benny as angry and of smaller stature.
