Do Trump and/or Biden collect Social Security?
David Nadelle includes both the current and former president’s positions on Social Security in this interesting piece. Both say leave the program alone, which is perilous given Social Security is headed for insolvency. He then explores if either collects benefits. Biden does, and he and his wife collected $58,465 in 2022. Trump, to date, has not started benefits, even though he would be eligible. The author includes this statistic from the Social Security Administration– about 3.5% of the 60+ population never receive benefits. Presumably most die before starting benefits rather than it being a choice to forgo them. Full piece here.
