I do expect Social Security to be available in the same form as it is today when I retire, but because of the current economic downturn, I am uncertain of the future for Social Security benefits. When you start working, you pay taxes into the Social Security system, which is deducted from your wages and other earnings, and once you retire you can apply for the benefits that you have earned over the years. There are a few items that depend on how much you get back and if you do, the number of years that you have worked at a Social Security-qualifying job, how much money you have made at those jobs, and the age you retired. It is my responsibility to start saving and prepare for when I retire. Some ways I can prepare is to start a savings account and put away a set amount from each paycheck and that will start building up until I am ready to retire. Also, I can set up a 401K account through my work and they will put a certain percentage where my work can match me and I will have double my earnings by the time I’m ready to retire. It’s definitely my responsibility to watch out for myself and make sure that I have enough saved that I will be able to retire by age 65 and enjoy the rest of my life with my family. Though, with Social Security, it is somewhat going downhill in the next few years, you’ll see the largest drop in worker-to-beneficiary ratios in history because of the baby boomers beginning to retire.

There has been a decline not only in birth rates but also in marriages because people are focusing on their careers and not on

One of the most expensive government systems ever created in the U.S. is the social security program. It is not only expensive economically, but its creation has led to a dangerous public mindset that believes that the government will come to its rescue at the time of retirement. The problem with this belief is that it has never been true. Originally, the social security program was meant to help widows and orphans who were not expected to work but had no means of support…
situation. That is the irrevocable “grantor” trust, which is a trust that contains certain provisions set forth in the Internal Revenue Code, which defines these types of trusts. With a carefully drafted irrevocable grantor trust, the income is imputed to you as the creator of the trust, but the trust assets are not included in your estate for estate tax purposes. In other words, as trust maker, you must pay the income tax on all trust income, but trust assets will not be subject to estate tax at…
