First Baby Boomer signs up for SSI....

Well, it's official. The news just announced that the first "official" baby boomer signed up for Social Security Today!.

Just thought I'd share this with you guys....

I saw that over the weekend and wondered...

how did they decide who was "first" and why is it on October 15th?

Enquiring minds want to know....

Okay..so I answered my own question in the USA Today article...

"Kathleen Casey-Kirschling <snip> — generally recognized as the nation's first boomer (born in Philadelphia on Jan. 1, 1946, at 12:00:01 a.m.)"

Guess I'm too far away from qualifying to "get" the Oct. 15th (10-1/2 months after b-day?) connection...why not Jan 1st?

The earliest age a person can sign up for SS benefits is at age 62. The baby boomer generation started in 1946, so someone born in 1946 must have just turned 62!

I think you can sign up two and 1/2 months prior to your 62nd birthday. That would explain today rather than January 1, 2008. Since she is only 61 now.

Okay, I'm off to put a reminder in my Blackberry now...

2020? maybe longer. the younger you are, the older you'll have to be when you collect. you'll have to be older than the early boomers.

Gosh, Shari, does this mean you are too young to drive? It must be a hassle getting asked for ID every time you walk into a place for a refreshment.

I'm a couple of years off myself - it is interesting that the person who is considered the first boomer lived long enough to collect SS. I had never realized that any one individual had been identified at some point and then tracked.

Only the full benefit social security age has changed and the age at which you can earn any amount without sending part back to the government. The government has not changed the date at which you can receive reduced benefits, it remains at age 62. Currently if you wait until age 70, the benefits are even greater than the current full retirement age. The amounts you are projected to collect are on the annual statement you should receive from the Social Security department. Medicare eligibility remains at age 65.

SS

A sore point here. California teachers who have fully earned quarters are not eligible to also receive SS. They call it "double dipping". But everyone else from civil service can.... Do I earn a warning for this grumpy post? Hope not. I am sure not everyone else can received earned benefits too. Do your homework and find out!

I am an official baby boomer.

Claudia,

You are right and that is wrong. If you paid, you should receive the benefits.

I think you can sign up 6 mo. prior to your 62 yrs. I checked on it a couple years ago. I plan on signing up this winter while we are south and hope there is still something left in November 2008.

Question Another teacher

[quote=CaddyGrn]SS

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I don't understand (as usual). I am a teacher in Texas, at the community college level. We opted out of the SS system about 25 years ago, but I have enough quarters, from my pre teaching life, that I can draw SS at 62. Just not very much(based on those quarters and my "other" retirement income.) My "optional" retirement program takes the same amount as SS and the college matches it, invests it and earns a rate that surpasses what SS can do.

Does your system pay into SS based on your income? or does it have an alternative system? Are you refused SS even if you have 40 quarters of credit? Just curious, sounds like you need some help from your Federal representatives. Or maybe already too much help from the Fed?:-)
cheers, bill b.
