Talk about a budget buster:
Florida has 145 retirees are over the age of 100!
That means some of these former government employees may have been working when Fuller Warren was governor (1949-53) and Claude Pepper was the U. S. Senator (1936-1950). Or before.
According to the Florida Retirement System, the oldest benefit recipient is 108 years old and retired in 1965!
This retiree could have been working when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president.
Of the total over the age of 100, 110 are Florida residents. One lives outside the United States—in Germany.
The rest are scattered throughout the country.
All I can say is Florida must be good for your health.
