Hi Donna,

Thank you for your reply.

I was able to log onto the SS website. It estimates the following:

At full retirement age (66 and 4 months): $1,578 mo
At age 70: $2,064 a month

If I understand correctly this estimate holds true if I continue to earn (gross wages)at least what I made in 2011.

Committing to living on $1,500 month now is an excellent idea.

Shire
