Today's retirees will live longer and spend more time in retirement than any other generation in American history. It's difficult to predict what Social Security will look like in the future and how much retirees will receive.
The increasing number of retirees from the baby-boom generation receiving benefits has increased the demands on an already strained Social Security system.
Social Security wasn’t designed to replace all of your income in retirement. In fact, Social Security may provide only a small portion of your retirement income.
According to the Social Security Board of Trustees, if no changes are made, the system will provide only 79 percent of benefits owed when funds are exhausted in 2034. (Source: 2015 OASDI Trustees Report)
