even if SS isn’t “bankrupt” it’s being decimated by Fed devaluation, 30 years of these 0-3% increases while real inflation is 5-10% and the whole check will buy 30 cans of cat food

Regardless of all the increases supposed, any little bit is better than nothing. My SS check is so minimal, but it affords me a “Big Mac” every so often. :wink:
