I never planned to see a dime of SS money, so this isn't as depressing to me as it should be.


Oh my first job out of high school in the *cough* 80's I knew then not to bank on SS.
The point is the CBO and "projections". :grouphug:

Yeah, it's pretty sad, but I would think that you of all people on this board would understand that the biggest recession in six decades and the multitude of structural changes that came with it can easily throw a model off...

Totally. That's what I mean. There are the big fat variables that you simply can't account or project for that no matter how many times you run your model, there is that black swan that nobody sees or knows about.
