As fall gets further underway, and we look to the end of 2022, seniors need to be thinking about their future and what 2023 may have in store for them. Looking ahead, Social Security beneficiaries will have another year of inflation under their belt and will be one year closer to insolvency. What we do to protect Social Security and our retirements now can lead to a positive impact in 2023 and beyond. Here’s how to get started.
Looking Ahead to 2023
2023 may still be a few months away, but it’ll be here in the blink of an eye. In that time, seniors have an obligation to protect their own benefits and the benefits of the next generation. For example, voting in elections at local, state, and national levels of government this season, and prioritizing the policies that positively impact retirement protection.
In the 2020 census, the senior citizen population was more than 54 million. Today, that number has only grown and it’s estimated that by 2030, every member of the baby boomer generation will be 65 or older. If every senior joined the Retired Nation and, no matter what other party affiliations or political beliefs, voted in favor of Social Security protection, then Social Security would have the chance to be protected for years to come.
Make yourself heard and help protect the Social Security Trust so that looking ahead to 2023 can be nothing but fun and exciting.
