Will Social Security be there for me when I retire?

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 by The Press in Opinion

I recently printed my statement from Social Security to see my projected benefits after reading comments on Facebook that the fund has been “tapped twice” and there probably won’t be any money for me when I’m ready to retire.

The saying, “You can’t believe everything you read on Facebook” is partially true in this case.

The years 2020 and 2034 seem to be important dates in the life of Social Security. Those are the years the funds may be in question with a projected deficit.

Real news is real foundation of democracy

Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that Facebook would begin prioritizing high-quality news on the social network by allowing its users to rank news sources that they see as the most credible and trustworthy citing “too much sensationalism, misinformation and polarization in the world today.”

Shortly after this statement was made, the New York Times’ stock jumped nearly 9%, indicating that the public’s interest in Real News has hit the comeback trail. For newspaper companies and newspaper readers across Pennsylvania, it never left.
