101. Whelp looks like dad won't be able to retire.
He retired last year at age 63, after closing his business, but couldn't afford health insurance. He was offered a job at his old company and took it for the health care benefit. His plan was to work for a couple of years so him and his wife can get Medicare. Now I guess he won't be able to retire for awhile.

My father is very fortunate, he was offered a very good job with great benefits at a very good income. But I really feel for seniors that did not have that option and are struggling to find work and pay there bills.
