Social Security and people’s retirements are indeed in trouble
Yes Social Security is in trouble. That is actually not news, as the Trustees reported yet again in April 2019 what has been known for many years. Without changes soon, the program will only be able to pay out about 80% of promised benefits as early as 2034. This is more a problem than people realize because studies show 42% of adults are setting aside no money of their own for retirement. Social Security is only designed to replace about 40% of the average earner’s pre-retirement income. Since most seniors require about 70% – 80% of their former earnings to live comfortably, it is quite apparent that a crisis is in the works. This article discusses what people in their working years can do now to prevent a disaster later. Read full piece on the Fox Business News link here.
