raising the age where a retiree becomes benefits elligibleI see this as an option all the time, listed with the other two.But, realistically, how would this work for those who actually depend on SS to fund a portion or all of their retirement?Where I work, it seems VERY RARE for anyone to make it past 55 before being cut in the annual downsizing (or, as one manager so aptly put it, the Thanksgiving Day Massacre :)). If the business community is not on board to retain the older workers, what happens to "retirees" who cannot find work during the 10+ years waiting on their SS benefits to kick in?MHO is to re-index the increases to the CPI, even though many know that what the "average" consumer spends $$ on rarely imitates what retirees spend their $$ on.3MM
