Attention, Millennials: Don’t Give Up on Social Security!

The popular media hasn’t been kind to Social Security in the recent past, using words like “bankrupt” and phrases like “the money has been stolen” to suggest where the program is headed in less than a decade. It’s unfortunate that so many of the pundits and naysayers mischaracterize the program’s finances and, in so doing, create a misunderstanding that impacts long-term retirement financial planning for those in the middle of their working careers. As a result, it’s increasingly important for those in the Generation Y cohort (and, actually, in all age groups) to have a clear picture of what’s ahead.
