    I have a mom who is 69 who collects soc. sec(which makes up mostly all of her income she lives off of), and I collect SSDI(which makes up most of the money I live off off) and both my husband (age52) and I (age 48) were asking if there will be, first, continual pay to both my mom and I now, (thru her soc. sec and thru my SSDI) and do you believe there will be any money, or enough money to be able to keep up the expenses of a home, thru soc. sec by the time my husband and I reach the age of retirement. Do you think either or both of soc. sec or SSDI will be decreased due to our deficit?. It's so sad that you can start working at the age of 16 1/2 and work (for my husband, his entire life, )then not have a definate program that has been promised to you in, at least some sufficient way. I know that soc. sec. was made initially to enhance someone's either income or investment/savings, but we all know the high percentage of people who don't have much in the way of a "nest egg", so most of us are looking to soc. security for more than it was created for so many years ago. It would be so much easier to actually know what we have coming to us when we are planning our future. Thank you.

      That money your mom has was mandatory that she contribute to that fund. Therefore, it is her money, not the government's.

      You must be a liberal with that kind of language. So if you go to higher education, you might graduate from being an animal to becoming a citizen.
