Begin typing here..Dear Anyone who will listen: I just saw something very disturbing to me. A person in the military who is retired can draw full retirement pay form the service and draw full social security benefits. What concerns me is this. I worked the early part of my life putting myself through school and serving in the military. I got my 40 quarters in social security. I'm 66. I get $400 a month from social security. When June of 2012 comes, I'll be a retired teacher. I paid into and qualify for teacher retirement. I paid into and qualified for social security, but because I'm a teacher my social security will be reduced to half anyway ($200). How can a person draw full retirement from service and full ssn and we, teachers, can't. Also $400 isn't a windfall in my book!! It is what I paid into and qualified for.
