So I will spend my retirement savings first & hold off tapping into SS. Yes I know there ain't no guarantee of a benefit. But I expect to receive something.

Yeah but, what if you kick the bucket? I come from a long line of people who like to die early. In my family if you died in your mid 70's you had a long life. My mom died of stomach cancer at age 51 and my dad died of cardiomyopathy at age 65.

Not to mention I'm significantly overweight and have no interest in dieting and trying to lose weight and it probably drop at least a decade off my life (if not more).
