Today I officially submitted a request to begin my benefits from Social Security. There is still the detail of providing the proof but it has begun. I am joining all the other Baby Boomers in sucking that teat dry. Even the SS agency itself is reporting potential problems for as near as 10 years from now. So all those waiting and expecting a better benefit in the future are in for a nasty surprise! I recently celebrated the first birthday with which I could begin drawing on SS. I did not know I could start them from a web page or that I could have begun this process a few months ago. In any case as of today it has begun.
This pretty much brings Chopoff Consulting to a close. I need no longer seek my fortune though everyone always wants something more. My wife though is nervous about Medical and is thinking she should remain working until at least 65. Well that is really her choice. Should SS run out or I need additional funds, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

If you too are smart you will get it while you can.
