Response to Recursion (Reply #27)

44. Right now there is an option for "early" SS retirement, at 62.

With a % loss of monthly income.
So I am sure that raising the SS age to 67 woud not exclude early retirement.

Right now, anyone getting Soc. Sec. disability is automatically entitled to Medicare after 2 years of disability.
No matter the age.
In fact, if you get Soc. Sec. disabiity before age 65, you will be automatically enrolled into "normal" Soc. Sec. when you turn 65. ( or 67, after the age change passed..if it passes).

The DANGER with Soc. Sec. funding is if the payroll tax decreases continue. Soc. Sec is funded via payroll tax.
so those tax decreases are eating away at SS on paper reserves.

The OTHER danger is when they cut Medicare payments to service providers.
Those docs who do not flee from Medicare patients will do what my doc just did..raise the office visit rates.
Medicare will still pay for some of that office visit charge, but the Co-pay will jump. As mine just did.
