I am old (71) and am eligible for nothing. The reason for that is I planned as I worked and saved some cash along with decent retirement plans.
I do admit besides social security I am still taxed on I have two governement retirement plans which are not bad. One I got when I was forced into state employ as most private industry was forced out of NYS elsewhere. I lost 16 years toward retirement from the private arena but still survie quite well even though robbed by the welfare recipients.
The other retirement plan is from the New York Army Natl Guard where I spent 23.5 years. Instead of loafing after work I worked two jobs.
The laugher is my retirement income is almost as much as the poor welfare recipients annual trough sucking.
