Oct 22, 2021

The good news is that the 2022 Social Security (SS) COLA adjustment is 5.9%. The bad news is that the Board of Trustees issued their annual report on August 31st and predict that SS funds alone will run out in 2033 and disability funds will run out in 2057. In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Ted Sarenski, CPA/PFS, shares:

  • The effects of the pandemic and the 2020 recession on the projections
  • The three suggestions being made to solve the long-term financial shortfalls
  • What to include in client projections given the uncertainty of the future
  • SS planning strategies to maximize the amount received
