Social Security Trust Fund

Social Security Trust Fund

  To the Editor, Is the Social Security Trust Fund empty because Congress borrowed and spent the money?  No.  The Fund invested the money in U.S. treasuries, and it will be repaid as needed. Suppose you were in charge of the Fund.  Once the current year’s payments were made, what would you do with the billions of left-over dollars needed to fund future payments? Would you stuff them in a coffee can and bury them in the back yard, where they would earn no interest and thereby lose ... Full Story

Payroll Tax “Holiday”? – The Grasshopper and the

Payroll Tax “Holiday”? – The Grasshopper and the Ant!

  This was a very bad idea! The amount withheld from your paycheck (matched by your employer) is not a “tax,” but a contribution to your Social Security retirement benefits. If you don’t pay in during those quarters, it reduces the benefits you will receive upon retirement. Ask the Social Security Administration for a calculation of your estimated benefits (which are based on how much you pay-in) and you will see what I mean! This “tax holiday,” like all holidays, costs you in ... Full Story
