  1. I’ve been following the Social Security Information for years preparing for when I turn 65. Good thing I did because Ohio has the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP). I fall into this and even though I’ve paid into Soc. Sec. for over 21 years, I will receive less than someone who only paid for 15-20 years. Also the calculation of COLA at 1.3% this year vs the actual cost on living increase, eg; some medications and medical/dental increases of over 100% is a joke. Then you take out for Medicare Part-B, which should have been factored in and collected years ago while the person is working, that way the elderly don’t have to worry about co-pays, deductibles, etc… For living needs of retired people today, the lowest income anyone should receive is $1,000.00 per month after WEP and for most others a minimum of $2,000.00 free and clear. All full retirements should start at 65 years old, not any older. Just have the politicians pay back the money they stole from Soc. Sec. Remember, the working people were forced to pay into the poor retirement investment by the government, it wasn’t their choice. Now it’s time for a fair return that people can live on.
