and if your vision is so bad you cannot work, SS disability would likely be an option.

Not to picked nits but "forced to retire" could cover disability and SS disability morphs into retirement at full retirement age. You can collect SS at 62 and at 60, if widowed.

So your issue was with her choice to be self-employed ?

I truly hate the threads that start with some article. I call them Ain't It Awful threads.

The bottom line on all of this is let people manage their own retirement or let the gov't. One side - people are too stupid to do it themselves/other side- I'm smart enough, let everyone else rot.
