      >Trust the journalistsn and their carefully picked "expert" sources god damnit!!
      You mean the same journalists and experts who kept pumping out article after article about Bitcoin being a worthless scam? Or the same experts who kept claiming the inflation was transitory after central banks increased their moneysupply by 40% in one year and anyone with an IQ above 80 knew that the inflation wasn't going to go away? Those journalists and experts? Yeah, frick off

          You failed the IQ test. Have fun being forced to pay into a pension system that'll be drained long before you reach retirement age

            it doesn’t, but it functions as a backup and will actually allow you to retire.

            young people putting all of their supposed retirement savings into mutual funds that barely keep up with inflation as is, are in for a big surprise once the massive wave of boomers start wanting to cash in their pensions en masse in the years to come. pension funds suddenly go from being net buyers to net sellers of stocks. put together the combined value of all the worlds pension funds. that’s the amount of sell pressure that will hit the market over the next 20 years. good luck to you and your stocks

            It'll be around it's just going to give you negative returns from what you put in, even moreso factoring in inflation

    I can't believe people really act like Social Security isn't a ponzi scheme. They even try to convince you to delay withdrawing for bigger returns

      well that's gotta be a relief. in these troubled times, at least that's one thing you don't have to worry about.

        Hopefully you’re being sarcastic. If not, even the US which has a financial system much more robust than Canada, only had about 2-3% of total deposits allocated to banking insurance payouts. If several large banks went under then the insurance would mean jack shit.

        Remember the AIG situation in 2008? It’s sort of like that. If things actually get bad, the insurance company can’t afford to cover the outstanding claims, goes bust and then you’re fricked even if you thought you were covered. Welcome to modern finance

    Wasn't SSI supposed to become mathematically impossible to make payments to all claimants by 2030 without drastically increasing taxes on the younger generations?
    Classic pyramid scheme, but the subsequent generations are smaller and smaller cohorts.

    I contributed $12K to Social Security. So far, Social Security (Disability Insurance) has paid me over $50K ($1500/month).

    Claiming Social Security early has really worked out for me.

      I get $2,750/month in VA disability. So $33k/yr. I still also make $70k at my job. Claiming early really worked out for me.

      By the time I'm 65 I'll already have collected about $1 million.

        I do not have a job.
        >Claiming early really worked out for me.
        Being that VA disability is not contributory, your statement doesn't make sense.

          He was improperly comparing disability to retirement social security so I was giving him shit. You silly billy.

    Social security feds are mad that boomers can use a spreadsheet and calculate out that investing social security yields higher returns than sitting around and shitting yourself.
