    I think that they are trying to save costs way too late in the game and as you said, they are making it easier for people to get critical info and run off with other people's money. An overwhelming amount of even encrypted info can be stolen online. I guess that for me this will not be a problem, there will be nothing left in SS for me when I reach that age.
