THE SS FIXES ARE EASY:

Is 70 the new retirement age? (Maurie Backman, 9/16/16, The Motley Fool)

Although the average retirement age in the U.S. is just 63, according to a recent study by human resources consulting firm Willis Towers Watson, almost a quarter of Americans believe they won't be able to retire until age 70 or older. Worse yet, 5% are convinced they'll never be able to retire at all.

Even workers who plan to retire at 65 aren't so sure of themselves. Those surveyed admit that, while they'd like to retire at 65, they think there's a 50% chance they'll wind up working until 70.

No one cares how old you are when you retire, as long as we don't have to give you SS checks until you're 70.
