I only worked 31 years (out of the 35 counted) for SS.....and I took my SS at age 62 since I figure Obama and the drones will make it somehow 'means tested' which means I won't get most of it....

and I get a teeny pension from GE, not inflation indexed...that started at age 60....for 13 years of service back in the 1970s......

the rest is what is spun off from my nest egg......dividends, cap gains, distributions, interest......

Obama has gone a long way to kill off most of that with zero interest rates, too.......my 6-7% CDs ended and now you get 1.3% on a five year CD and 0.02% on a MMF.....
