Jan 23, 2013

     I quit my job 3 years ago to take care of my wife of 43 years after she had a stroke. I used paid FML in the beginning with little change money wise. The wife was already collecting her SS, the minimum amount. When my FML ran out I took an early retirement with all of the penalties. I had to wait another year before I could collect my SS at age 62. Thing were very tight but we made it through it.
