Exceeding income you know Don grant CFP demonic record what does that mean yes will you please explain that as well at some point before the year 2034. At the Social Security system will need to have some changes made to sustain that current levels now for the first time in a three and a half decade period. Social Security distributions are surpassing totally and come from the workforce. Social Security is a pay as you go system that means that current workers pay for benefits for current beneficiaries. The Social Security trust fund has about two point eight trillion dollars and it. But through some clever accounting those real dollars were moved to the nations general fund. They were replaced the money with the IOUs from Uncle Sam. The two point eight trillion is a difference between what the government has collected and what has been paid out now every year. Auditors predict when a Social Security will run out of the ability to fund benefits at current levels. They look at current economic conditions and they work to predict future employment that will be taxed to pay for the program. They way that side with the back of the balance sheet with a number projected retirees who will benefit from the system. Current projections show that the depletion of the trust fund will trigger in late 2034. That's moved up from previous assessment of early 2035. Now when those monies are depleted the program will not just go away it's not gonna end. If congress does nothing to fix it benefits will Reid be reduced by between seventeen and 20%. The money collected from current workers will continue. To pay benefits. You know but the but what will happen is benefits will exceed the income that's coming in so little deplete even more every year. It's likely that congress will make some legislative changes to keep Social Security benefits rolling at the same levels. To do that some areas of the program will need to change. Disability payouts may change income withholding thresholds may go up or at the age to collect benefits may rise as well. In 2017. Social Security paid more than 940. Billion dollars to more than sixty million beneficiaries. The oldest baby boomers are now in their seventies. And more boomers are retiring every day.
