capitalism, finances, negative 

my friends mom is refusing to take social security until she turns 70 and can collect the full benefit. that's not for 3 or 4 years. meanwhile, even though she is eligible to collect "full retirement" benefits, she is refusing and forcing her minimum wage-earning son to support both of them while they both live in poverty.

it makes me so mad, but neither of them seem to see any problem with it.

yes, you should wait until you're 70 to collect social security IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO (the capitalized part is important)

re: capitalism, finances, negative 

are you throwing away money by collecting early? well, that depends on when you die, and living in poverty is a possible cause of death.
