"Age 65 retirement in the 1940's was near death for most males."

Not really. You need to review life expectancy at age 65 and not average life expectancy from birth.

Good data that proves both our points. About 10% more males and females were dead in the 40's by 65 than now.

If there is good fiduciary news its that illegal aliens are infusing it with billions of dollars of payments off of false SS #s.

Tough issue.
