because you re-exposed yourself to mortality risk. They looked at the benefits but ignored the risks.

Since a number of my family members have lived into the 90s and sometimes the 100s, I was willing to take the risk.

Also, of course, this worked only for people who didn't need the SS money to live on. So the only people who could get this benefit were people who were financially extremely well off.

Isn't saying extremely well off kind of extreme?
