The Current Social Security System

- The current social security system is not going to last forever; the social security system is projected to run out of money by 2034. As of right now the social security system operates by the currently employed population paying into it so that the current retired population will have a source of income. But with the major population shift that has happened in recent years there is not enough people working right now to put money into the social security system. Which is why social security should be privatized....   [tags: Retirement, Pension, Social security]

The Future of Social Security

- As the baby boomers continue to reach the Social Security-drawing age, the American government’s surplus of finances will gradually fall to a dearth of funds unless intervention is made quickly. Plans for reform have been mentioned, but so far nothing has been done to supplement the future’s inevitable lack of funds. The sooner the government takes action on Social Security, the less severe the reform will have to be. Well- planned adjustments in the smallest increments can make the largest impacts on the system of Social Security....   [tags: Social Security, USA, ]

Reform for the Social Security System

- The Social Security System is in need of a new reform; our current system was not designed for the age stratification we have at this time. The U.S. Social Security Administration Office of Policy states, “The original Social Security Act, signed into law on August 14, 1935, grew out of the work of the Committee on Economic Security, a cabinet-level group appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt just one year earlier. The Act created several programs that, even today, form the basis for the government's role in providing income security, specifically, the old-age insurance, unemployment insurance, and Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) programs.” Social Security was modeled...   [tags: United States, Social Security Administration]

The Social Security is not a Ponzi Scheme

- Social Security is not the Ponzi scheme some oppositions may advocate. Social insurance, as envisaged by President Roosevelt, would address the permanent problem of economic security for the elder community by creating a work-related, contributory system in which workers would provide for their own future economic security through taxes they paid while employed. It provided an alternative both to reliance on welfare, and to radical changes within the capitalist system. It can be seen as a moderately conservative, yet activist, response to the challenges of the Depression (SSA, 2014)....   [tags: social security act,ponzi scheme,social insurance]

Privatization of Social Security

- It’s a matter of either losing all that you have worked for and live in poverty when retired or allowing your hard earned dollars to grow and have a secure comfortable retirement. I believe that Social Security is a doomed Government Program and that Privatization of Social Security would allow for a more secure retirement plan for all Americans. Social Security was first created to help aging Americans in their senior years so they would not end up in poverty. Social Security was signed in as law on August 14, 1935 by President Franklin D....   [tags: retirement plan, privatization of social security]

Social Security System: Success to Failure

- It was the year of 1934. America was fighting to come out from the worst economic crisis that the world would ever witness. It was also the year of high crime rate, low Gross Domestic Product and the lowest unemployment rate America had experienced. The Depression had paralyzed American labor forces, but there was a hope still alive in every American including J.D. Rockefeller when he said, “These are days when many are discouraged. In the 93 years of my life, depressions have come and gone. Prosperity has always returned and will again” (Rockefeller)....   [tags: Social Security, USA, history, ]

Social Security: Time for Change?

- For the past 78 years, one governmental system’s benefits have been essential to the nation’s elderly and disabled individuals. This system itself has focused on providing benefits to every American when they reach the age of 65, or earlier than the age of 65 if they preferred to receive smaller amounts of benefits per year (Social Security Administration). The system, at the same time, has taxed citizens and companies to levy this distribution of benefits. This system may seem to be a great idea; however, the trust fund has been ever decreasing with no end of this decrease in sight (Economist Briefing)....   [tags: tax, republicans, democrats, Social Security Act]

Social Security As A Safety Net For Retirees

- The original intention for creating social security was to act as a safety net for retirees, but as time past, there seems to be a great deal of economic issues relating to the program. Social security was created to help benefit retired workers, spouse and children of deceased workers, as well as workers who have become disabled before retirement. This insurance program provides retirees with a steady income once they retire. President Roosevelt signed the program into law on August 14,1935. Since then, social security has been beneficial for many workers and retirees....   [tags: Retirement, Ageing, Social security, Pension]
