That is the basis for my long standing proposal for Social Security reform:
Pay Social Security to young folks, who are banned from working until they reach 30; then the benefits are dropped, and they have to work the rest of their lives, paying into the system.
"Retirement" thus comes when one is young enough to enjoy it, while the work is done after one has become old enough to have some stability and direction in life.
Also, that gives a disincentive for Seniors to lobby for benefit increases. ;-)
