I don't worry too much about the future of social security. My assumption is that I won't get it and neither will my children, but we will have to put money into it because they will continue to confiscate funds to fund it.
I worry more about people who start to withdraw funds from their 401(K), 403(B), and IRAs for their living expenses. Seeing that is where I expect to have my funds for living, I wonder what happens to the stock market when stocks have to be sold and the buyers are not there. That's devaluation, right?
What got me thinking about this was this article about the first Baby Boomer who is going to file for Social Security benefits and this article about the government retirement savings program.
