It’s hard to believe, but Election Day is just right around the corner — and the candidates are hunting for your vote. But as they roll out the same speeches and soundbites about important issues like the future of Social Security, it seems like many have forgotten what’s really at stake here: Your money, your future, and the futures of your children and grandchildren.
It’s a promise that’s been kept for generations. You pay into Social Security, you get the benefits you earned. But to keep that promise for future generations, Social Security needs to be updated for the 21st century. If our leaders don’t act, future retirees could lose up to $10,000 a year.
