Yes, I know you are all sick of SS questions. However,I retired early, with the SS spouse's stipend figuredinto the equation. When spouse retired, I discoveredthat 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 RetirementBoard at the time of retirement. In other words, ifI had worked at Nordstrom for 30 years, I would get it.Since I taught, I do not (or death benefit either). Isthis equitable? None of my still-teaching friends areaware of this, and when told are horrified. It seemsto me this is primarily a woman's issue, and gender-biased. My pension is not large enough to live on inCalifornia. Is anybody out there also affected, andcan we do anything about it?
