What Happens if the SSD Trust Fund Runs Dry?

What Happens if the SSD Trust Fund Runs Dry?

The Social Security Disability trust fund is set to run out of money sometime in 2016, according to reports by the Social Security trustees. At that time, individuals who are receiving Social Security disability benefits (which includes both Social Security disability income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits) as well as individuals who apply for benefits will likely encounter a Social Security disability program that looks significantly different from the program today.

What Does It Mean When They Say the Trust Fund Will “Run Dry”?

Social Security disability payments are paid out of a specially designated trust fund (there is a separate and distinct trust fund for Social Security retirement benefits). Beneficiaries are presently paid benefits as a result of contributions made by current workers and the money available in the trust fund.

When trustees and other government officials say the trust fund will “run dry,” what they are indicating is that the fund will no longer have enough money to continue making payments to beneficiaries at the current level. Beneficiaries will still be able to receive some measure of benefits because of the contributions that are received from workers; however, these contributions will not be sufficient to continue paying beneficiaries the benefits they currently receive.

What Can I Expect if the Trust Fund Runs Dry?

Politicians in Washington, D.C. have until next year to decide how to respond to this situation. Some have suggested that the disability trust fund should be replenished using funds from other sources, including the retirement trust fund. This would keep the disability trust fund solvent for an additional period of time.

If politicians do not take action, current Social Security disability beneficiaries can expect to see their disability benefits cut. Some estimates show that current contributions can fund 81% of current benefits payments; thus, a current beneficiary receiving $1,000 in monthly benefits may see his or her benefits cut by about $190 per month (leaving the beneficiary with a monthly benefits check of $810). Individuals who are not presently receiving benefits but who would apply for benefits after the trust fund runs dry can likewise expect that, if approved, the benefits they would receive would be less than benefits similarly-situated applications would have expected to receive in the past.

What Do I Need to Do?

Beneficiaries and those anticipating receiving benefits in the near future can lobby their members of Congress and other federal lawmakers and encourage them to find a lasting solution to the trust fund’s monetary problems. Without a congressional solution, it is highly unlikely that benefits payments will continue at their present levels.

Our Social Security disability attorneys can also help. At the Klok Law Firm LLC, we keep abreast of changes to the Social Security disability program and are able to advise you as to the benefits new applicants are likely to receive if their claim is approved. If you live in South Carolina, we can help you plan for the future if you are no longer able to work. Contact our office or call us at (843) 216-8860 and schedule a free initial consultation today.

    Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    tinyurl
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    your information isn’t solid, however suppose you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Divorce Attorneys

    Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a
    little bit more interesting.
