Retirement

You may be thinking you’re too young; it’s too soon to think about retirement – wrong. It’s never too soon to begin planning for your retirement. Based on the latest trustees estimate, the system’s trust funds will be exhausted by 2041, therefore, the government will be forced to pay out only a percentage of the amount promised in social security funds. And due to rising health care costs, the Medicare trust fund is expected to run out by as early as 2019!
