So I guess neither of you guys have parents or grand parents that may need to collect SS some day or are old enough to already be collecting? Or should we just wait till after your relatives have collected than finish it off?
Well if that's the way you want to swing it.
And no, all of my grandparents are dead and my parents are 50 and 53. All of my grandparents worked until they died though 2 of them were collecting military retirement and only working part time. My father in-law is also collecting a military pension and has some money from selling a business in the 80s. I don't know if they collect SS but I know that they didn't have to and I am fairly confident that the system will be gone before my parents are old enough to collect.
