Paying early retirement benefits is the first thing that should be eliminated altogether. That was an add on to the program that inflates costs.

Gadzooks! This is the second time in recient memory that I have agreed with you, SP.. Does this mean the end of the world is near?

They are on the right track to gradually escalate the retirement age more in tune with our longevity pattterns, and the early-out should be eliminated. I also think it is foolish to let someone draw SS and continue to work. The original idea was (partly at least) to bribe people to get out of the work force and let younger people have the jobs.
