I started taking my SS at age 60 because I was diagnosed by an idiot surgeon with state 3 BC. I thought I better get as much out of SS as I could before I died, even though financially I did not need it. I still had a small business and my late husband's pension to keep me going.

The doctor was wrong, BC was stage 1 and I am still above the green at age 83. Yay!
