With the economy in the dumps and the thought that Social Security won’t be in our future what are we going to do? The population will have increased and less people working mean less people paying into the system. How many people are investing in their future? We have a 401K we started 20 some years ago and thinking about what we’ll be doing for a secure future.
We have recently started thinking about what we want to do when our children are gone and it’s just the two of us. We have come to the realization that the possibilities are endless. We just need to be creative, but what ever we decide will have to provide for us, with out Social Security or Medicare. The only other spin on this that I want to add is that when I was graduating in 1988, one of the older teachers told us there would be no Social Security in their future or ours. So far he’s been proven wrong, and I hope I will be too, and we leave a legacy our kids and grandkids will be proud of.
