August Happiness Challenge: Day Twelve

Rizz enjoys paying the mortgage
On Day Twelve, I'm happy for Social Security.  I received a statement from the Social Security Administration today. It explained that if I began taking payments as soon as I'm eligible, at age 62, I'd get $1,849/month.

That would more then pay my mortgage and monthly assessment.

Since I'm a big fan of having a roof over my head, this made me happy.

Let's hope Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise to leave Social Security alone, honors his word.
If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the Happy Cub. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.

  1. I'm sad that I probably will not be eligible to receive the SS I paid in while working retail--Maine's retirement system calls it "double dipping" to get both state retirement and SSI. :(

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
