For many people, the future of retirement ends when it becomes the present.
Once tomorrow becomes today, and you finally exit the workforce, you open up a new chapter in life. You begin receiving your Social Security benefits, and dedicating your time as you decide.
Some people spend this time with family. Others learn new hobbies. Still others remain professionals, entrepreneurs, volunteers, or otherwise to stay engaged with the world. And of course, no matter your life plans in retirement, it’s always good to get away and travel.
But there’s another matter to be passionate about at this time — protecting the future of retirement. And there’s no better time to consider this than now, as one year fades into another.
Why Current Retirees Should Care About Social Security
Social Security is something everyone should be able to rely on. As long as they’ve paid in, they’re due these benefits — and they should be adjusted fairly for inflation. Even those who will take retirement in 2024 (or already have) should be focused on this program’s short- and long-term future.
Every time seniors help in the fight for prioritization of the program, along with fair yearly Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLAs), they stand to raise the amount of money they receive — and elevate their own standards of living in retirement.
While this is by no means a gift, and it’s something seniors have earned, it feels good to finally reach that mark and claim your benefits. But you should still be passionate about the program even after you’ve already reached retirement.
For one, you could increase your own financial standing throughout retirement. Also, all retirees share a common desire for a relaxing and enjoyable life in their later years. But there’s also the principle of the matter — the fact that future retirees should have the same right.
How can you support the future of retirement, even after you’ve already reached this milestone?
