Depleting Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds

Published on October 18th, 2009

The 2009 Board of Trustees Report for the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds was released earlier this year. The 2009 report finds that the trust funds’ reserves are projected to be depleted in 2037, down from 2041 as predicted in the 2008 report.

The main culprit is not surprisingly the recession, with negative real grown of the economy, a high unemployment rate which results in fewer Social Security taxes collected, and additional claims filed.

I am so happy! Thank you for helping me with my case. You made everything go so smoothly. No I know why you are 'number one' in Chicago. I will surely send qualified friends and family your way when they need your help. Thanks again.
