I think my best case would be for whatever SS they allow me to collect hopefully will be enought to pay my share for Medicare or whatever might be in its place for my health care. A wash, in other words.

When the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010, my taxes will go up significantly, as a large portion of my retirement income comes from dividends and capital gains. It just so happens that I turn 62 late in 2009. I am hoping that my Social Security benefits, after tax of course, are enough to pay the extra taxes on my other income so that I don't have to ratchet down my lifestyle or increase my withdrawl rate. A wash, in other words.
