If I get fat it is the kids next door and their school fundraiser's fault...
It is a Social Security thing. I am not sure how long it has been in effect. A friend just retired as a fire fighter. He also worked as an emt for the ambulance companies that operated in the area. Before he was old enough to work for the fire district he worked construction. He did the worksheet and found quite a few quarters didn't count.Figures, it’s California. Wife and I get state retirement and social security checks with no worksheet to fill out and no state income tax. Many, many years ago, I had a federal government job, for a short stint, and they took SS withdrawals out that counted toward my retirement income. If that’s a California thing, I don’t understand why anyone would work for that state’s government.
