There has never been an SS fund for anybody to steal from. SS was just another income tax and the SS tax has always gone straight into the Treasury to be spent (and it was).

We decided to take a cruise on the increase in our SS. The problem is, I don't think we will be alive when we get all that money...

I've been collecting SS now for 14 years. It is and always been my monthly allowance for my enjoyment, shooting, fishing, dinners out and other entertainment. Has never been needed for daily or monthly expenses.
I, along with others on here, learned many years ago about investments and for the 40 years of work I religiously added to it, This ,plus a very good pension for both the wife and I has made my 20 years of retirement very enjoyable. Fact is, we have not had to dip into our investments and it continues to grow. (Well except for the recent big drops along with the one back in 08)
I'm certain it will come back in a few years just as before. Right now it's scheduled to be given to our kids when we pass.
So the extra bucks in my monthly SS will be enjoyed as usual.
Yup and DJT still is a big NOTHING !!!!!!!!!!!

Last year my SSI cost of living increase was nowhere near enough to make up for the actual COL increase. But it was enough to place me in a higher income category where they eliminated my medical prescription benefit!

This last election has really emboldened the rinos. You all swear on a stack of bibles you are as conservative as they come. Until it’s time to vote then it’s I voted for Biden he was the better choice.. You are ph ucking idiot

Swifty that can't be right. It describes SS benefits as entitlements and we all know that is a great conspiracy to hurt the feelings of boomers.

Also there can't be a change in net position, since they are just paying people's own money back to them.

I know it is the people who run the whole program and sign the checks who published all this, but it just can't be.

Again you have it wrong. The gov would do it anyway. Your non-saving neighbor is not the reason the gov does things. The gov does things to obtain and maintain power.

My advice to those wanting a pleasing and comfortable "retirement" - make other plans than "SS".

I'm taking my SS in October 2023. I will be 70. I did very much like what Varmit guy says. The SS money will be gravy.
