Bob opined I would hate to see person A be penalized for his savings he accumulated over a lifetime.Phil repliedMeans testing is never going to happen if it's viewed as punishing those who don't have to go on the public dole.Bob comes back withSo how about person B being rewarded for not saving during his income earning years?;-)ResNullius described… that it would take a cut-off of about $60K in non-SS income in order to make much difference over the long term. This is the lowest number I've seen, heard, or read about, so my guess is that any cut-off would be much higher (and double for married couples).Bob repliesSo person A above could put the entire 2 million into a money market fund which would currently earn an income below these limits and perhaps would pass the means test.;-)Bob
