We watch the news. We read the newspapers. And we scour Internet news sites. We've said it before, and we'll say it again: we want to keep you informed. If we find something important, our goal is to make sure you know about it one way or another. While we know you could essentially come across the same information on your own, we want you to know we're looking out for you too.
There has been a lot of talk recently about the status of the Social Security Administration and their stability. Will there be funds available in the Social Security Administration's trust for the younger generation when they need them? Will there be funds for those who need them tomorrow? Perhaps you might have even heard your parents question the system's stability back in the day. Unfortunately, there's no easy answer. And, unfortunately, we don't have any say in the matter; it's solely in the government's hands.
But, something interesting popped up recently in our journey to keep you informed. It was an article that was originally posted in the Herald-Journal on December 19th....of 1977. The article, which was written almost 35 years ago, read as if it had been written today. The same issues and concerns regarding the Social Security Administration's trust fund stability were just as prevalent in 1977 as they are now in 2011. It's apparent that, when it comes to our security, time doesn't have much affect on our concerns.
We don't know what the future holds, but we will keep you informed. The possible dissolution of the Social Security Administration's trust fund is something that has been around for decades, and we've always come though.
