My "Full Retirement Age" is 66 even. So I'll start getting 100% Social Security in March 2016, but I'll have to continue working at least 30 hours/week for about two more years to get my successor fully trained.

Ironic that the CFPB and not the SSA has the best tool.
Opinions are mine not my employer's, and should not be taken as legal advice.

Senator Shelby just issued a letter to Director Cordray criticizing this CFPB tool. He points out errors between the SSA's calculator and the CFPB's. He questioned why the CFPB used its resources to create something that SSA already had.
Opinions expressed are my own and not necessarily those of my employer. They are not legal advice.

Senator Shelby needs to realize that the CFPB has an infinite budget, and the authority to do whatever it wants, as long as they put the word "consumer" somewhere. I do not believe Dodd-Frank required the CFPB to be accurate in anything they do.
I thought getting old would take longer.

Only four months and two weeks until early retirement for me! I'm getting out while I'm still sane.

From the CFPB web site linked above:

Create a my Social Security account to review your expected benefits based on your actual Social Security record. You will also find additional information about your eligibility and other benefits including disability and survivor benefits.

The CFPB web site doesn't claim to generate the actual numbers because it doesn't have the data to drive them. So an allegation of "inaccuracy" should generate a "Really?" response. It also refers users back to the SSA website where, if they want to set up an account, they can get the actual numbers.

Was setting up the website really CFPB's job? Dunno, Personally, I think the nation would be better off if their employees were out next to the highway picking up trash.

For those calculating your time to "full benefit age" in years or even Mondays, expect that Congress will make the full retirement age a moving target; as life expectancies get longer the "full retirement claiming age" will rise. frown The other "trick" at Congress' disposal is to change the taxability of the benefits paid to imply (not legislate) that the benefit is more "needs based" than was ever intended.
In this world you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.

Societies that do not find work in and of itself "pleasing to God and requisite to Man," tend to be highly corrupt.
