for BethKisor, who asked Why has the age group 62 through 64 been overlooked for the Social Security Earnings Limit? :That group wasn't overlooked. They were omitted to protect their spouses (it says here)."The measure will not repeal the existing penalty for those ages 62 to 64 who opt for early retirement and receive reduced benefits. Retirees in that category will continue to lose $1 in benefits for every $2 they earn beyond $10,080 a year. Lawmakers initially intended to push for repeal of the earnings limit for those workers too, but decided against it after lobby groups for seniors pointed out that the change would place in jeopardy some benefits that the spouses of such workers receive. "http://www.latimes.com/print/20000323/t000027569.htmlDoes anyone know what those benefits might be? Higher survivor's benefits for widows if their husbands work longer maybe?Chips, who loves loafing and has no intention of returning to the work force, regardless of what Congress does about these matters
