How to Reduce Your Future Reliance on Social Security
The latest report from the Social Security Trustees, just released about a week ago, has caused a bit of concern for those who will rely on Social Security when they retire (which is, of course, most Americans). It’s important to keep in mind that Social Security cannot go bankrupt as long as there are Americans working (forever). But, the 2021 report from the Trustees warns that future costs will be more than incoming revenue, which will result in current SS reserves (about $2.9 trillion) being used to offset the difference.
