Yes, understood. I was trying to address only the limited matter of people being confused about the word "switching." Pretty soon we'll be in a world where there is just one set of rules for all new SS applicants. At that point the confusion will lessen... unless of course people who are older and filed under old rules keep complicating the discussion by repeating what they did back in the day.

The era of one set of rules and definitions can't come soon enough!

Sigh, the closer I get to the goal, the quicker the rules seem to change. Recently had a change at work that I missed the cutoff by about eight months.

well with those born in 1953 being just 66 there are still a few years left for those grandfathered to make it through. in the mean time it has nothing to do with back in the day because those eligible for restricted application maybe first filing

Well, maybe not. A change at work wouldn't affect the SS rules under which you file. It's your birthday that determines that.

i don't think they were referencing a social security event but rather a cut off pertaining to something at work

Yes, my (former) retiree health plan. Discouraging to see goal post being moved when I'm within sight of them. Does make any attempt at planning more difficult.

Well those things do happen. Cry over your spilled milk for a while and then regroup.
Might take a bit of replanning based on what changed. And then once you've reached it, grab it before it changes again.

Between corporate America and Social Security..changes are changes. Be quick to adapt and take serious consideration of any early retirement package your company might offer.
