Hope you get it straightened out soon. Listening to a commentary this morning on the radio, our government could cut us all off. Since Johnson (remember the "Great Society"?), they have looked at SS payments from wages as revenue and spent it as soon as they collected it (if not sooner). Dems started it but Pubs have been complicit all these years.
If the "fund" had been left intact it is estimated that $10 trillion would have been there for the retirement of the last Baby Boomers. Further, the generosity of the system (politicians) to people who did nothing to earn a benefit, expedited the ZERO balance.
I'm trying to figure out how I can run my budget like that without going to jail!
