Yes, I know you are all sick of SS questions. However,
I retired early, with the SS spouse's stipend figured
into the equation. When spouse retired, I discovered
that I do not qualify for stipend solely because I
worked as a school teacher all my life. This was not
'splained to me by SS or State Teachers Retirement
Board at the time of retirement. In other words, if
I had worked at Nordstrom for 30 years, I would get it.
Since I taught, I do not (or death benefit either). Is
this equitable? None of my still-teaching friends are
aware of this, and when told are horrified. It seems
to me this is primarily a woman's issue, and gender-
biased. My pension is not large enough to live on in
California. Is anybody out there also affected, and
can we do anything about it?
