"You're making huge leaps with no support"Where did I say I wasn't cashing my SS checks?
What I did say way "Sorry to break it to you but I'm enjoying my retirement on my own dime".
Then I backed that up with "Do the simple math, if I eliminate my SS, my lifestyle is unchanged."
So I do not need SS to live. Nor do I need it to maintain my current standard of living. I wouldn't suffer if the checks went away, the charitable organizations I give money to would. Are you a slow adult or purposefully avoiding the words that I'm typing? Again you're coming off as someone with diminished intelligence and the inability to grasp and understand simple concepts. I'm not knocking you, just pointing out the obvious.
You're making huge leaps with no support, junior. And at $95K, you're not scraping what I earned. During the last 20 years of my working life I stopped paying FICA 4 months into the year. I'll let you do the math on that. At your current earning rate you're still paying into FICA on December 31st. So, knowing a tad bit more than you on how the world works including finance, you have never paid more than me into SS. Ever.
Don't you think you're doing exaclty THAT when you claim I'm a layabout when you know nothing about me whatsoever?
"During the last 20 years of my working life I stopped paying FICA 4 months into the year."
You're LYING again Sr!!!!! Avg. wages were like 16K but YOU were making more than 250K for 20 years, YEAH RIGHT!!!!!!!!
