Wednesday, 10/20 at 1PM.

Social Security, Simply Put

In 2021, nearly nine out of ten people aged 65 and older will receive Social Security benefits. These funds represent about 33% of the annual income to these recipients. With significantly fewer employer-provided pensions available in the workforce, Social Security benefits are often relied upon as a retirement income cornerstone.
