I'm not retired at present and not eligible for SS yet. So I answered the poll as if I were retired, age 62 and decided to draw SS.

I anticipate that approx. 45% of my expenses will be covered by SS/defined benefit pension income. I've worked 40+ years and will draw near the max for SS. In addition my expenses are pretty low.

I figure that SS will probably go bust sometime during my lifetime. So I plan to be positioned to draw more heavily from investments and rental income just in case.

I do have a SO, but answering as a couple would have been waaay to complicated.
