Social Security and retirement. They just go hand-in-hand. For many retirees, it’s all they have. Even for those investors who have saved plenty throughout their working lives, Social Security often factors into the underlying equation.

But the latest one is a real horror story.

It’s a serious problem that is perhaps unavoidable. However, we individually can turn back the tide and hedge the effects on our own retirements.
