My main reason for claiming SS at 62 was because males in my family don't live long ... on either Mother's or Father's side of the family, or for Father or for my brother.

A lesser but serious concern was the ability of SS to have full future payouts, a concern that was reinforced in the annual statements from the SSA.

And I think I can handle money OK, too. :)
