Do you think Social Security will be around when your grandkids retire?
No. Actually, I doubt social security will still be around when my son retires. I don't oppose social security at all. However, we are in such huge debit as nation and it is very troubling that our nation's leaders have yet to initiate any clear answers to this problem for many years.
No, I don't think it will. This country is in huge trouble economically and at some point they will start to remove these programs. Just think if all of the politicians in Washington DC took a pay cut--we could fund lots of great things.
I think it will be around in some form. I'm young enough that I don't think I'll see the same benefits as my parents, but I'm sure the system will be around in one form or another.
I actually think it will still be around...We'll just be receiving pennies worth of benefits. At the current rate, the system won't be able to support the retiring population--but everyone will oppose getting rid of it because they want to see their benefits, having paid in. So we'll just be splitting a smaller pot of money with a huge number of retirees, but it will still be there.
I don't believe it will be around when I retire. That's ok. I will continue to write during my retirement.
The economy we have today constantly indicates that social security is not secure.
I think it will be around a long time. They are raising the age for retirement, so fewer people will live long enough to collect. I am able to retire at the age of 65, yet my youngest son cannot retire until he is 75. Companies lay-off older workers, so if that worker is unable to collect social security, he will have to find some form of income such as a Greeter at WalMart.
Yes, but retirement age will be higher and benefits will be less. Please see;

What are the implications for Americans if the Social Security system is eliminated?
by Peter Grant6 years ago
I saw a headline today that said Social Security to run Permanent Deficits. How will retirement be funded for the majority of Americans who have no savings - nothing? It's ridiculous to think that we continue to support...
