Congressmembers are considering raising the Social Security retirement age




For many of us following the baby boomer bubble, we've assumed full social security benefits wouldn't be available to us at 65. That looks more likely as leading members of both parties are considering raising the age of eligibility to 70. It would apply to those currently under 50.

Thursday morning on "AirTalk," we'll debate that idea, and talk about other proposals for funding social security benefits.

What do you think about the higher age proposal? Is it necessary to make the finances of social security work? Is there still a reason for people to retire at 65, given extended longevity?
