When I filed for social security at the age of 62, having paid in for 40 + years, I was told only the last 5 years counted. I don't understand that. I have worked off and on since then, I am now going on 76 years old and have been paying into ss since then with very small increases in my checks. I don't know how all of this is figured, but I don't think this is fair. When I hear
Politicians say entitlements need to be cut it really makes me mad. I could have been putting that money in investments and would have something to count on.
