Only good thing about turning 58 in October is I am one year closer to free health careAnd you’re probably just now starting to think about Social Security being on the horizon.
I pay $2600 / month for health care now with $12k deductibleHealthcare isn’t free, but you will feel like it is. You can’t live on SS with the lifestyle your accustomed to. We don’t touch our SS.
The only reason I took on another mortgage at 66, was because it was the same amount of my health insurance which I no longer had. Combining my house and shop was a win, win. No deductibles, no co pays, zero, Nada Waited to draw SS at 70.I pay $2600 / month for health care now with $12k deductible
Medicare is for all intents and purposes will be free by comparison
A couple $100 in supplemental coverage is peanuts
My monthly SS check will be like petty cash

I am fortunate to sit on Altoona City Council, the Altoona Redevelopment Authority/Land Bank and the board of the Blair County Sports and Convention Center.63 today, 48 years cleaning carpet. The carpet cleaning business has created a financial path for our family. Kathie and I had three children that all played three musical instruments, nine lessons a week.
