Is there any money in the US Social Security fund?
I have an acquaintance who says that there is no money in the Social Security fund in the US. I’ve also seen reports that state there is $2.6 trillion dollars in the fund, which is enough to pay benefits for 25 years even if no more money were ever put back in.
Is there any money there?
What are some talking points I can use with this person when discussing Social Security?
