Gosh, and here I was crying into my soup every night because I seem to be the only one I know without a pension or stock option plan! Since I'm getting closer to retirement, and pretty much lost a lot of what I had saved previously during the three year bear market, I'm currently stashing 30% of my gross income (50% of my net) into retirement and savings--that's all I can afford to do, but if they reduce my estimated SS payment, I'll be screwed.

OK, I'll stop crying into my soup now...2old
