Think You’ll Get Social Security…Think Again

Written by Brett McKay

When most people think of social security, they think of senior citizens collecting a paycheck. That’s just half the story. A lot of people also receive social security checks due to disability. Due to the poor job market, suddenly more and more are seeking this assistance. This is putting additional strain on the social security system.

Between the ponzi-like finance of social security, the aging baby boomers, and now more and more people being disabled, young lawyers can pretty much count that they won’t be getting social security payments until they’re very, very old (if at all).
