I'm 43 and using a Social Security benefit of $0 for my own planning.If you're fed up with Social Security taxes, there's a solution. Stop working and retire early. I did this five years ago. Many folks don't realize that interest, dividends, capital gains, and pension and retirement plan distributions are all exempt from FICA and Medicare taxes. It's certainly possible to cobble together enough to live on from these sources if you have a modest lifestyle.intercst
