SS is a Tax
Avg retired benefits $1330 a mo or $15,960 yr
$307 wk, or $7.67 hr.
Many people have worked 50 years, contributing to SS, and Medicare, and even after getting SS benefits, they have to contribute again if they earn a wage.
The fed employees have a real retirement plan, FERS, and it is not managed by the govt. $255 is the SS death benefit, and the avg retirees is getting $1100 a month. There are not enough New people to sustain the SS. What is wrong w/privatize
With more people going into the workforce than people that are retiring. SS is not a Piggy Bank, it was never intended to bank roll the family of a person who dies.
The gov. has done a fantastic job in setting up SS benefit pmts.
Bankroll, how about burying their loved one.
What was it intended to do?
You pay into the ss as long as you earn a wage???
