    My hope is to be able to wait as long as possible to take mine, but I still have many more years of work before I can even consider it. My parents are both recently retired though and they are both waiting until 70 to begin collecting.

    Have you tried calling your insurance provider? They can usually explain what is or isn't covered.

    Well it looks like the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare is dead for now. More than enough Republicans came out against Senator McConnell's latest bill and the Kentucky Republican has now said that he's going to move on to other items on the legislative agenda.

    That's a good question. I would recommend getting in touch with someone at the Social Security Administration and I'm sure they will be able to help.

    Senate Republicans finally released their long awaited bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, capping off months of secret negotiations between a group of Republican Senators. Leader McConnell vows to have a vote on the bill before the July 4th recess.

    Four Republican Senators have already voiced some disapproval of the bill, which is more than enough to sink the bill entirely. But those Senators may eventually be swayed if Republican leadership makes some minor modifications to the bill.

    If the Senate is able to pass the bill then it will go back to the House. If the House then is able to pass it without modifications then it will go to the President for his signature.

    Anything can happen between now and final passage, but this is the closest the Republicans have come to repealing Obamacare.

    Max Wrote: It appears that Senate Republicans are a lot closer to an agreement than a lot of people thought. It's shocking how low on the radar this is in the media considering it is something that will directly affect tens of millions of peoples healthcare.

    I've been following it very closely and it looks like this week or next are going to be critical.

    It's anyone's guess whether the Republicans will be able to muster 51 votes (or 50 with VP Pence casting the tie breaker), but it is surely going to be close either way.

    I would also recommend contacting the Social Security Administration and asking them what your best options are.

    That's a great video explaining a pretty confusing topic.

    I honestly can't believe the Administration even put this out. There is little to zero chance of this being enacted and it seems to go against everything he promised on the campaign trail to help the most downtrodden among us.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate will be voting on their version of the bill in the coming weeks, but he has not set a definitive date.

    There will be two main questions when McConnell brings it to the floor: 1) Will he get the 50 votes needed to pass it (and then have VP Pence as the tie breaker) and 2) Will the House be able to pass the Senate version?

    I have a feeling that it's going to be extremely difficult for the Senate Republicans to actually get 50 votes because there are more than three moderates who have already come out against many of the things being discussed in their version of the bill. If three Republican Senators vote "no" then it's over, at least for now.

    So it'll be interesting to see what happens in these coming weeks. It will likely be a make or break moment for this young Administration.
