How Social Security Works

Social Security provides monthly payments to millions of Americans, helping cover day-to-day expenses, especially in retirement.

However, many retirees find that these payments alone aren’t enough to cover all their expenses, particularly due to rising medical costs. Despite adjustments for inflation (COLA increases), the rising cost of essentials often outpaces these adjustments.

Why Retirement Planning is Essential

Retirement planning is crucial for ensuring financial stability. Here’s why:

  • Budgeting: It’s important to have a monthly financial budget and savings to cover unexpected costs. Housing and medical expenses can rise unexpectedly, so having a financial cushion is essential.
  • Savings: Active workers should focus on saving for retirement to ensure they have enough funds when they stop working. Building a retirement plan helps predict how much money you’ll need.
  • Expense Management: List your major monthly expenses and expected income, including Social Security. Deduct your expenses from your retirement savings and include healthcare costs. Once your basic needs are covered, you can plan for travel or entertainment.
