Social Security starts providing online statements
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Social Security Administration is now providing workers with online statements of the estimated benefits they will get when they retire, replacing the paper ones the agency used to mail out.
Until last year, the agency mailed out yearly statements that told you how much your benefits would be if you retired at age 62, 66 or 70. Social Security stopped mailing the paper statements to save an estimated $70 million a year.

I'm not sue if I like this or not;it seems like the govt is making it easier for cybercrooks to take your savings and benefits
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.

What are the implications for Americans if the Social Security system is eliminated?
by Peter Grant 7 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 something that has already failed.

My husband is a disabled vet and I could not believe the notice he got in the mail this last month. Social Security informed him that the cost of living has actually remained the same or even maybe went down, according to the government, therefore they are charging him with an overpayment for...
