What if the age at which government workers could begin collecting their pensions were raised by, say, three years? So, a police officer who worked from age 20 to 50 and retired at age 50, couldn’t start getting cash benefits until age 53. Would you then be willing to start collecting SS one year later?

Let’s talk about people other than public safety officers. Let’s talk about your average government bureaucrat who gets to retire at 50.

No, pushing their retirement age to 53 is not the equivalent of pushing the age of retirement from 65 to 66 for someone who has worked for 45 years.

I think government workers should be able to retire after 30 years with a full pension—which they cannot begin to collect until they reach normal retirement age of 65.
