Happy 88th Birthday to Social Security — Will it See 100?


Social Security recently turned 88. However, it may not reach a triple-digit milestone.

We’ve discussed how partial insolvency could plague the program in the coming decade or more. While this isn’t the same as total bankruptcy, it does constitute a failure of the system.

After all, many seniors need every cent of their benefits. Even those who are well-off deserve their money. Remember, we’ve all paid into this program and deserve to be paid back.

What do you think of Social Security on its 88th birthday? This run of many decades has supported many retirements. And to this day, many people support this program. Will it be around, in its full form and glory, to see 100?
