Social Security and You

We could do a weekly segment on Social Security alone. The stats are astounding:
· In 1940, the life expectancy of a 65-year-old was almost 14 years; today it is just over 20 years
· December 2018, the average monthly benefit was $1,461
· By 2035, the number of Americans 65 and older will increase from approximately 49 million today to more than 79 million
· There are currently 2.8 workers for each Social Security beneficiary. By 2035, there will be 2.2 covered workers for each beneficiary
