Yes, I do. I it does not ban benefits to seniors - what it does is eliminate certain strategies of when to take benefits on the record of someone else, such as spousal, dependents, etc. Did you have a question about it I can help you with?

Some will lose big time.

There are some questions I can ask of you that can determine if this effects you.

First, how old are you?
