Last quote about Social security

Angela Constance
Clearly, a nationwide citizen's basic income would be a significant financial investment - and the document does not suggest that this could be £12.3 billion as the Tories wrongly claim - but the whole point is that it could potentially lead to significant savings elsewhere in the social security system and in the wider public sector.feedback

All quotes about Social security

Shinzo Abe

We will turn Japan's social security system into one that responds to all generations by boldly diverting policy resources to resolve the two major concerns -- child rearing and (elderly) nursing care – that working generations confront. We must not give in to North Korea's threats. By gaining a mandate from the people with this election, I will forge ahead with strong diplomacy.feedback

Jose Antonio Vargas

Oh my God, now you have something that I don't have–you have a Social Security number.feedback

Carl Leonard

We have become accustomed to data breaches, but the Equifax breach announced on September 8 is significant. This breach affects personal consumer data which people have no choice but to use: their social security numbers, a number which will permanently be associated with an individual. Consumer trust in organisations is eroded by data breaches of this magnitude. People should also keep a close eye on activity on bank accounts and credit cards, and consider identity theft management services.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

It's almost better to assume all of your data has likely been breached already. You might as well assume that most people out there know your credit card information, know your social security number.feedback

Zach Perret - Plaid

Most banks and many financial technology companies rely on drivers' license validation or social security validation. It will be hard to rely on them to verify identities going forward.feedback

Michael Harwood

Initially, it's really terrifying, especially having your Social Security number taken. You're worried about the tremendous implications this could have and the possibility of it going on for years.feedback

Robert Siciliano

The best thing a consumer can do in response is to engage in what's called a credit freeze. This essentially locks down your social security number on your credit report preventing criminals from opening new lines of credit under your name.feedback

Ryan Kalember - Proofpoint

This has really called into question the entire model of how we authenticate ourselves to financial institutions. The fact that we still use things like mother's maiden name, social security number and date of birth is ridiculous.feedback

Laura Fuchs

When it comes to the A.P. exam, you need to know what Social Security is – it's called an entitlement, which means if you qualify according to the law, you receive it.feedback

Tomas Evangelista

All those programs we support – Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security – but we can't pull from them ourselves as we are not eligible.feedback

Fred Watson

The second thing he said was, Give me your social security number.'.feedback

Jerri Williams

If they can get you to react before you have a chance to either question it yourself, or to talk to others who will say 'Hey, hold up for a minute,' that is an important key to any fraud. Really investigate anything that asks for you to provide information that you normally would hold close: account numbers, social security numbers, your bank account. Don't ever react quickly without having a chance to first verify who you are talking to, and then make a decision as to what they're asking your for is legitimate.feedback

Greg Abbott

I was thinking of writing my Social Security number on my arm.feedback

Patrick Rios - Rockport

Those that are going to stay – it's unfortunate – but they should make some type of preparation to mark their arm with a Sharpie Pen. Put their social security number on it, and their name.feedback

Jean Tate - Federal Reserve System

To our knowledge, the consumers who have attempted to make payments using Federal Reserve routing numbers and their Social Security numbers have not given their information to fraudsters.feedback

Fran Keller

This means we don't have to worry about pinching pennies on Social Security, and late bills. It means we will actually be free. We can start living -- and no more nightmares.feedback

William Frey

Trump's immigration plan may seem to be a politically expedient way to reach older whites who are fearful of the nation's changing demography. But … as more white baby boomers retire, the nation's labor force and economic vitality will increasingly depend on [growingly] non-white immigrants and their children. They will be prime contributors to Social Security and Medicare.feedback

Teresa Cardinal Brown

Immigration is a national imperative for the United States, fueling economic growth and supporting our nation's retirees. The RAISE Act's goal of reducing legal immigration is a threat to the U.S. economy and would place additional strains on the Social Security system by reducing the size of the labor force.feedback

Jacob Hacker - Yale

Every major breakthrough from Civil Rights to Social Security to what happened on the right under Ronald Reagan were driven by significant mobilization behind an idea that was much more extreme than what actually happened.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Apparently nothing upsets House Republicans like the idea of hard-working people getting to enjoy a secure and dignified retirement. While Speaker Ryan sharpens his knives for Medicare, Chairman Johnson's bill is an alarming sign that Republicans are greedily eying devastating cuts to Americans' Social Security benefits as well.feedback

Chris Carosa

Social Security would fundamentally change in a disruptive way. There's no avoiding that reality.feedback

Jean Setzfand

What happens there is you have a lower base of guaranteed income. Everyone is really reliant on Social Security as that floor. They no longer have that traditional pension that lasts them through their lifetime.feedback

Orrin Hatch

With an aging population, our nation's most critical retirement programs -- Medicare and Social Security -- are feeling an increased financial squeeze that puts their future viability at serious risk.feedback

Bob Corker

I don't want to be irreverent, but, you know, people talk about their governors back home, are you kidding me? I mean, if we can't even deal with our governors back home, how will we ever deal with Medicare and Social Security?feedback

Nancy Altman

The numbers make it clear that the question about whether to expand or cut Social Security is a question of values, not affordability. Lawmakers should follow their lead.feedback

Nancy Altman

Congress should expand those modest benefits while ensuring that Social Security has sufficient revenue. The American people overwhelmingly want to see [the program] expanded, not cut.feedback

Tom Price

Congress must act to ensure the long-term fiscal viability and sustainability and survival of Medicare and Social Security. There are a great many ways that the situation can be addressed. The bottom line is that it must be addressed.feedback

Jon Husted

...(V)oter registration information is a public record and is available online. The confidential information, such as the last four digits of a voter's Social Security number or their Ohio driver license number, is not publicly available and will not be provided to the Commission.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid. Every other Republican is going to cut, and even if they wouldn't, they don't know what to do because they don't know where the money is. I do.feedback

Kevin McCarthy

Mr. Gomez's absence means his constituents have no representative to help resolve veterans claims and/or appeals with the Department of Veterans Affairs. They have no representative to secure lost or misappropriated social security or Medicare checks. And they have no representative to debate and vote in the People's House on the critical issues facing our country.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it. That's not going to happen with us. I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid. Our healthcare plan will lower premiums & deductibles – and be great healthcare!feedback

Debbie Abrahams

We welcome this initial step to ensuring that those affected by the awful events at Grenfell Tower do not face the difficulties that so many social security claimants on universal credit do, on top of the trauma and distress they will be facing, as they try to come to terms with this dreadful tragedy.feedback

Cliff Hoskins

It's going to at least take half, if not all, of my Social Security. If I had to pay the full amount, that would not be good. That would put you back in poverty.feedback

Owen Jones

Our young have suffered disproportionately these past few years: student debt, a housing crisis, a lack of secure jobs, falling wages, cuts to social security.feedback

Clifford Hoskins

It's going to at least take half, if not all, of my Social Security. If I had to pay the full amount, that would not be good. That would put you back in poverty. If they do away with this, there are going to be a lot of changes to my voting. This is my biggest issue right now.feedback

Barry Kozak - October Three

Social Security benefits do have a cost of living adjustment, so at least that source keeps up with inflation.feedback

Randy Bruns

Social Security and home equity are major pieces of the retirement puzzle. But for most individuals, the primary focus is all too often how much has been saved in their retirement accounts.If you ask me, that's one of the biggest flaws I see in retirement planning.feedback

Randy Bruns

The risks you'll face in retirement are unlike any you faced during your working years. The more flexibility you build into your cash flow, the more likely you'll be to manage those risks.That's why a balanced approach using financial assets, home equity, and the optimal Social Security claiming decision deserves considerable attention as you transition into retirement.feedback

Vladimir Nazarov

Russia is one of the five countries with the highest level of social security contributions for employers in the world.feedback

Andrea Feirstein

The most important thing is to start saving and not wait for a rainy day. If you're grandparents, the day your grandchild gets a Social Security number, put whatever you can in a 529 plan. The tax-deferred compounding is more powerful than most people understand.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Do you really think that Social Security Disability Insurance is part of what people think of when they think of Social Security? I don't think so.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

We do not touch mainline Social Security and we do not touch Medicare in this program. What we've done is not to try and remove the safety net for folks who need it, but to try and figure out if there's folks who don't need it, that need to be back in the work force.feedback

Romina Boccia

I think that it is a key step toward putting the budget toward a sustainable path to balance. While I think this is a good start, and the budget includes important reforms, we do need to continue to push for broader reforms to Medicare and Social Security because they are the key drivers of our growing spending and debt.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

If you ask 990 people out of a thousand, they'd tell you Social Security disability is not part of Social Security.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

He said, I promised people on the campaign trail that I would not touch their retirement and I would not touch Medicare.' And we don't do it. If you ask, 999 people out of 1,000 would tell you that Social Security disability is not part of Social Security. Old age retirement – that they think of as Social Security.feedback

Mark Cuban

Back then a lot of smaller regional banks still did everything on paper. Mellon had a department that went in and converted them to computerized systems. That's what I did. I wanted to be more entrepreneurial. I took the initiative. I used to send notes to the CEO of the bank. I once cut out a magazine story about how corporations could save money by withholding Social Security and sent it to him. He sent me a thank-you letter back.feedback

Brooks Brothers

It is important to note that no sensitive personal information, such as Social Security numbers or personally identifying information, was affected in this incident.feedback

Ken Hevert

Deciding when to start taking your Social Security benefits is one of the most important retirement planning decisions we face. Social Security-related decisions can be complex, with a number of trade-offs.feedback

Archie Parnell - Goldman Sachs Group

Can you imagine an America without Social Security? It would be a very different place, a place I don't want to live in.feedback

Chuck Schumer

This has been the nefarious goal of the hard right for decades. This is what Bush did. They did tax cuts and then they said they had to cut Social Security. Some in the hard right, their ultimate goal is actually to cut Social Security and Medicare, even end it. This is a path for them. We're going to stop it.feedback

Garrison Keillor

I’m old and cautious and on Social Security. But I could still pull off something big.feedback

Vito Marcantonio

I hope the House will insist on the position of having Puerto Rico included in our social security system. Not to do so will only mean an intensification of the discrimination that exists against Puerto Rico under the present colonial system.feedback

Vagner Freitas

Temer does not even want to negotiate, he just wants to meet the demands of the businessmen who financed the 'coup' precisely to end social security and legalise the exploitation of workers.feedback

Ken Hevert

Social Security knowledge is increasing over time. People are starting to think about their Social Security claiming strategy years before they retire.feedback

David Freitag - MassMutual Financial Group

You should pay attention to Social Security. For most people, it is the biggest source of guaranteed retirement income that they will have.feedback

Beth Givens - Privacy Rights Clearinghouse

Most people know the role that Social Security numbers play in identity theft, so this is a welcome move. It's a no-brainer: Your Social Security number should never have been used in that way. It was a big mistake.feedback

Barry Slevin

We know from the Social Security debate, from the Medicare debate, that Congress does not deal with issue like this early in the problem. They tend to react to emergencies.feedback

Frances Ryan

If more people become stakeholders in the welfare state it becomes so much more difficult for the Tories to lay waste to it. Brexit may define this election, but as the NHS haemorrhages resources and struggling families see their annual incomes squeezed by thousands of pounds, politicians would do well to remember Britain is facing other battles. And though it may not seem it, Labour’s recent pledge of free school meals for all primary pupils is in many ways a symbol of the conversation we should now be starting. When it comes to public services and social security, two big themes jump out: first, that there is a critical level of underfunding and mismanagement that is damaging a growing number of people’s lives; and second, how government should respond.feedback

Bernie Sanders

So, what you're seeing in Kansas, what you're seeing in Georgia, I believe you're going to see it in Montana, I believe you're going to see it all over this country; in the many so-called red states, working people are going to wake up and say, wait a second. Republicans want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and education, and they want to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the top 1 percent.feedback

William Hoagland

Did [Congress] give the administrator of an agency enough flexibility to say, You can manage your employees any way you want and still accomplish the objectives of the agency? Some people in Congress will say, Those employees are there to carry out a particular function, and you're jeopardizing the number of people who are needed to process Social Security checks. Then we'll have a big debate.feedback

Paul Van de Water

Reducing the linkage between what people pay for Social Security through the payroll tax and the benefits they get out would in the long run weaken public support for Social Security. And [it would] provide a further rationale for cuts in benefits.feedback

Tom Wheelwright

An employee pays 7.65 percent in Social Security tax. As soon as she becomes self-employed, that rate doubles to 15.3 percent, and when she starts earning real income, Obamacare raises that rate to 16.2 percent. Reducing or eliminating that extra self-employment tax would be huge for new entrepreneurs.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Well, I think the promise was he wasn't going to affect anybody and we haven't with this budget. Keep in mind what this budget is. This is just the discretionary spending part of the budget, which was a necessary first step. Let me ask you a question: Do you really think that Social Security disability insurance is part of what people think of when they think of Social Security? I don't think so. It's the fastest growing program. It grew tremendously under President Obama. It's a very wasteful program and we want to try and fix that.feedback

Bill Cassidy

It is my understanding that never has there been one filibustered. We can see that those things that have happened, like civil rights, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, that have had an enduring positive effect on our country, have been done in a bipartisan fashion. When it's done with one party jamming it through, much like Obamacare, it leads into years of divisiveness. I think it's another place if we're going to find something that works across the nation, we need to have both parties involved.feedback

Sabine von Toerne

This requirement was not known to anyone I know. No one ever asked, even when I enrolled into university for my midwifery degree, no one ever asked me, Do you have CSI?' . I don't think anyone will knock on my door and ask me to leave, that's completely bonkers. What I could imagine is that there will be restrictions on health-care benefits and social security things.feedback

Gene Ruby

She's got the number. The Social Security number. Ain't going nowhere.feedback

Brian Fung

In a party-line vote, House Republicans freed Internet service providers … of protections approved just last year that had sought to limit what companies could do with information such as customer browsing habits, app usage history, location data and Social Security numbers.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

We should not be afraid of debt or borrowing. At the end of the Second World War, the Labour government of Clement Attlee didn't say, oh dear, debt is 250% of GDP, let's park those grand ideas about public ownership, a national health service, building council homes, or creating the protection of social security. No, they built a country to be proud of. They established the institutions that made out country fairer, more equal and stopped people being held back because of the poverty of where they were born.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

During the presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump said he would replace Obamacare with “something terrific.” In February, he assured us he was putting together something “wonderful.” He would cover “everybody,” he said in an interview with The Post. He once bragged that he was the only GOP candidate to promise not to touch Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. He never would give particulars, other than to say he would allow insurers to sell plans across state lines (which has never been feasible since it involves the upfront challenge of setting up a network of doctors).feedback

Abe Rogland

It's fascinating to be on set. I made $7,000 for the day. A lot of them cashed out their IRAs already. A lot of them are working now because they have to pay the rent – Social Security is just not making it. It's kind of a frightening time.feedback

Ezekiel Emanuel

I may be the only person on the Democratic side who, for crazy reasons, they've agreed to talk to. Beginning in 2020 or so, the ACA will increasingly be seen as a world historical achievement, even more important for the United States than Social Security and Medicare has been. And Barack Obama will be viewed more like Harry Truman - judged with increasing respect over time.feedback

Lisa Greenwald

I continue to be struck by the relatively small share of workers who do formal retirement planning. Some of these critical retirement planning steps don't cost workers anything, like estimating Social Security or thinking through what your expenses may be in retirement.feedback

David Freitag - MassMutual Financial Group

Just like you review your 401(k) statements, you need to check your Social Security statements because it is a big part of your retirement income.feedback

Chad Hamilton

A client in her early 60s may have not yet begun to receive Social Security and is living off a portfolio which is providing her income which generates very little in taxes. Take advantage of these years when taxable income is particularly low to reduce the amount held in traditional IRAs.feedback

Jeff Trump

They give me Medicare and Social Security because I'm technically disabled. I would be financially ruined on paper, but not her, and they wouldn't take her stuff. It would make me angry, but I don't feel like our marriage is based on a piece of paper. Divorcing doesn't change your obligation to third parties.feedback

Philip Rucker

The return shows that Trump paid $36.5 million in income tax, of which about $31 million was in the form of an 'alternative minimum tax,' a supplemental tax designed to cut down on filers with excessive deductions. He also paid about $1.5 million in Medicare and Social Security taxes.feedback

Matt Cullina

There is so much rich data in a tax filing. It's not just your date of birth and your Social Security number, but also where you live, your charities and your dependents' sensitive information. There is a sense of immediacy because the email comes from a person of authority or someone who might ask for this data during tax season.feedback

Mary-Ann Stephenson

This reveals that the government's aim to help the 'just about managing' is incompatible with the chancellor's decision to 'continue with our plan'. The 1.8m working families receiving tax credits are the 'just about managing', but rising inflation and a freeze in tax credit rates means a sharper fall in their real-terms income. The chancellor's decision to continue with the decisions of his predecessor to cut social security for these low income families, at the same time as cutting taxes, is effectively a transfer from the purses of poorer women into the wallets of richer men.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

We have long argued for a clampdown on bogus self-employment, but today the chancellor seemed to put the burden on the self-employed worker instead. There has to be a something for something deal. So I hope the chancellor will bring forward extra social security in return. One policy that Labour backs is extending statutory maternity pay to self-employed women, which is likely to cost just £10m a year.feedback

Mark Meadows

He did talk about saving Medicare and Social Security, and as someone who was on the campaign trail with him in November, it was really about making sure that people who were getting benefits, or about to get benefits, are protected.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Clearly, you can help fix and solve Medicaid as part of this larger Obamacare replacement, right, that the two things are tied together. So if we get Obamacare replacement right, it might also allow us to fix Medicaid. I don't think you're going to see this President have any interest in raising the retirement age anytime soon. But we need to address things like Social Security Disability, which you and I both know is one of the fastest growing and probably one of the most abused mandatory programs in the country.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Trump said, I will save Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, without cuts. We have to do it. I think Trump was as clear as he can be, and if he goes back on that, he was lying to the American people.feedback

Torsten Bell

That's because the tax credits and other benefits they rely on are frozen for the next three years as part of the government's attempt to cut the social security bill. Every time inflation rises it increases the size of this cut. If the OBR's forecast matched that above it would mean that this benefit freeze would amount to a 6.5% real-terms cut over the parliament.feedback

Joe Tomlinson

I always recommend starting with Social Security. It's like buying annuity, but at a much better price.feedback

Joe Tomlinson

Say I claim Social Security at 70 instead of 66. The cost is the amount I give up by claiming later, and the payoff is the difference in annual income when I do claim later on.feedback

Matt Cullina

There is so much rich data in a tax filing. It's not just your date of birth and your Social Security number, but also where you live, your charities, and your dependents' sensitive information. There is a sense of immediacy because the email comes from a person of authority or someone who might ask for this data during tax season.feedback

Sayuri Shirai

If you talk to the households, they all say they are worried about their futures because they don't know how many years they are going to live and then their pensions are not enough. So the most important thing is Abe really has to touch on Social Security expansion reform and try to make this pension, health insurance system more sustainable and that is the only way in order to reduce the anxiety and concerns that are prevailing among the households.feedback

Brad McCarthy

You need to be conservative with withdrawals because you can't count on other sources of income, like Social Security, that most retirees have.feedback

Sam Kerch - Symmetry Software

Every year tax laws change. Payroll departments rely on software programs to stay current and there could be errors along the way. You want to make sure the change that happens on your check is expected. Everybody is going to see some kind of federal taxation – at the least Social Security and Medicare.feedback

Susan Allen

Nannies are accustomed to being paid under the table. Explain that 'This costs me more each year because I'm paying your extra share of Social Security taxes'. I want people to go into it with the full knowledge and transparency of how this relationship works. Don't go into this casually.feedback

Tim Steffen - Robert W. Baird & Co.

If you're paying someone to provide you with services, they have to report it as taxable income. If you don't pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for your employees, you're subject to penalties and fines. It can be considered a felony if you don't pay and this can lead to prison time if it's egregious.feedback

Bob Goodlatte

There is no evidence suggesting that those receiving disability benefits from the Social Security Administration are a threat to public safety. Once an unelected bureaucrat unfairly adds these folks to the federal background check system, they are no longer able to exercise their Second Amendment right.feedback

Jennifer Birchett

I had a client who came into a sizable inheritance and was not looking at relying on Social Security anymore, but they had just applied two months ago.feedback

Jennifer Birchett

They feel nervous Social Security will not be there, so they take it early. We try to encourage confidence that, yes, it will be there.feedback

Jim Buterbaugh

We're not the world's Social Security office. We're not here to take care of people. I understand that people need help, but there are other ways besides bringing them here.feedback

Ernie Tedeschi - Evercore ISI

2018, according to what the CBO has been telling us over the past couple of years, is when you start to see on one hand the real burden of demographics on entitlement spending on things like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid come into play, and when you see the recovery in tax revenues from the recession ... be for the most part complete.feedback

Debbie Stabenow

I think folks on Social Security and Medicare ought to be really worried. The alarm bells should be going off right now.feedback

Sam Johnson

I urge my colleagues to also put pen to paper and offer their ideas about how they would save Social Security for generations to come. Americans want, need and deserve for us to finally come up with a solution to saving this important program.feedback

Charles Blahous

The politics of Social Security reform is not getting any easier. When the trust funds run out, it will be too late.feedback

Ben Becker

Trump has triggered a wave of protest and outrage across the country. His election has itself become a point of protest for women, Muslim communities, for immigrants, for people who care about education, social security, Medicare – the list is almost limitless in terms of the people who feel threatened by what a Trump presidency would mean.feedback

Tom Price

Why some folks here in Washington would be willing to let these programs go bankrupt is beyond me. Medicare and Social Security are going broke.feedback

Alastair Wilson - Moody's

The institutions aren't profoundly changed and the challenges are more to do with the government's own balance sheet and what steps this administration takes to contain the growth of social security and healthcare liabilities.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Donald Trump has got to come forward, maybe through one of his tweets, and say clearly that Donald Trump, he will veto any legislation that cuts Medicare, that cuts Medicaid, that cuts Social Security.feedback

Florian Philippot

It's either deliberately fuzzy and he is hiding his real plan, which is to privatize the social security system ... or he is genuinely back-pedalling and that means we could, if Fillon is elected, be condemned to five years of immobility.feedback

Scott Bishop

If you have someone who retired at age 60 and they haven't started their Social Security yet, their average tax bracket might be 10 to 15 percent.feedback

Johan Luijendijk

We are in favor of a basic income because everybody has enough security to feel free and to make own choices. To care or to have an own business. To work or to volunteer. When someone can live starting from own talents and callings, it's better for everyone. With basic income we can cut social security and huge bureaucracy.feedback

Judy Herman

I certainly want to hear that it [Social Security] will be here for the future and that it will maintain the standards that we have come to depend on. I'm 73, and I think that a lot of people my age who are still active adults, going out and doing things all day, still depend on some of those programs. Medicare is a big program.feedback

Susannah Goodman

The D.N.C. hack and the release of the emails are a wake-up call. Emailing is not something you would do with your Social Security number. So why would you do it with your ballot?feedback

Jamie Hopkins

People are coming to retirement, and they don't have much. They have their home, Social Security and a little bit of savings. Why not use the home equity?feedback

Delphine Capdevielle

Our patients don't have much money. So a big challenge for us is to develop a platform that can be used by everyone free of charge, or that can be reimbursed by social security systems. We need to ensure that we don't create further issues for patients who already suffer many challenges.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I will not cut benefits. I want to enhance benefits for low-income workers and for women who have been disadvantaged by the current Social Security system.feedback

Ted Sarenski

Social Security benefits are the backbone of most people's retirement plan. Stay away from serious trouble with the law if you want to retain your earned benefits.feedback

Ted Sarenski

A homegrown terrorist who has earnings in which he or she paid into the Social Security system will lose any current or future Social Security benefits if convicted of subversive activities.feedback

Ted Sarenski

I do not believe this is being taught in any schools across the country. Nor did I know that spouse or parent homicide was such a problem that the Social Security administration needed to add such a rule.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Well, Chris, I am on record as saying that we need to put more money into the Social Security Trust Fund. That's part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is to replenish the Social Security Trust Fund….feedback

Peter Navarro

Penn Wharton's tax, immigration and Social Security simulators provide access to fact-based information that allows people to decide for themselves what initiatives are best for the country's future.feedback

Benjamin J. Brandt - Wealth Management

If inflation happens, whether Social Security recognizes it or not, you'll have to increase retirement income. It's not coming from your pension or from Social Security. It's coming from your investment portfolio.feedback

Nancy Altman

Women disproportionately rely on Social Security in retirement.feedback

Roberta Eckert

Women frequently claim Social Security early when their older spouses retire instead of waiting to maximize their benefits.feedback

Nancy Altman

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have now debated for three hours, and no moderator has yet asked them about Social Security. This is an extreme disservice because the Democratic and Republican parties have very different positions.feedback

Linn Freedman - Robinson & Cole

If no financial information or Social Security numbers are involved, then most state laws would not require notification and credit monitoring would not be applicable.feedback

Allan Roth

The best annuity on the market to protect against outliving your money is to delay taking Social Security payments.feedback

Tim Steffen - Robert W. Baird & Co.

What it tells me is that maybe they have a nice pension and Social Security benefits, so they may never need to use this money. Required withdrawals get bigger as [time] goes on, so it's probably income that they are less likely to need.feedback

Maya Rockeymoore

We often talk about Social Security reform in the context of retirement. The fact of the matter is that skews our understanding of who the program serves. Social Security serves people of all ages, from birth to death – and the number of dependent children is too often ignored.feedback

Maya Rockeymoore

Policymakers should understand that this is an important program for vulnerable people across the age spectrum. So when people argue that Social Security should be cut, our counter is that the data shows that would be devastating for our country - it needs to be expanded.feedback

Ben Tobias

At that point, nobody thought Social Security would be around. Today, when we're talking to [wealthy] clients, for people who are 55 and older, we factor in Social Security as the laws are right now. With [wealthy] clients under 55, we talk about it, but more in the way of 'It'll be gravy if it's there, but let's not count on it.feedback

Ben Tobias

It's important to look at your different options with Social Security, because there are choices to be made that have long-term effects.feedback

Kevin McGarry - Nationwide

A lot of this is due to the fact that [most] advisors wish they had more information about Social Security rules and regulations. Most advisors don't have [extensive] knowledge about it, so they don't it bring up to their clients.feedback

Max Richtman

Seniors continue to see their modest Social Security benefits eaten away by growing health care costs.feedback

Michael Khalsa

I found it very, very easy to get my N.I.E and my Social Security number, we had a translator, but it was still very simple. What's concerning for me is that it might be a more difficult process if the Brexit goes ahead, if we actually leave the EU.feedback

Frank van Lenthe

Work and marriage offer, or at least increase, the possibility of financial and social security. Losing support from a partner, or the security of a job, may cause stress and result in unhealthy behaviors.feedback

Janet A. Stanzak

Medicare premiums [for parts B and D] are the most consistently withheld payments on Social Security.feedback

Clark Randall - Nationwide

If you're working, you absolutely should think long and hard before you take Social Security. It's very punitive if you're making any money at all.feedback

Alma Telibecirevic

I have to do my paperwork: my social security number, finish things about my bank account, I will also have to do my driving license. I know it will take time for me to get to know people, show what I am doing, to make connections. But I am curious about this and I'm looking forward to that.feedback

James Lange

Make sure that the amount is about half of the worker's benefit and the Social Security number shown is the worker's Social Security number. If something isn't right, it should be corrected without delay.feedback

Stamatis Giannisis - Euronews

Public sector employees aren't the only ones reacting to social security reforms. Similar objections are voiced by those working in the private sector. And they both threaten to crank up their protests to the maximum once the pensions bill to be agreed with the country's creditors is presented to parliament.feedback

Alicia Munnell

I'm absolutely convinced that Social Security is not an excessively generous program. It would be impossible to summon a panel of working people who felt like they were getting just what they needed from it.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Let me give you an idea of how corrupt this system is. The leader of Goldman Sachs is a billionaire who comes to Congress and tells us we should cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Secretary Clinton, and you're not the only one, I don't mean to just point the finger at you, you've received over $600, 000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year.feedback

Roger Hickey

If you had a universal health care plan people wouldn't have to pay premiums. They would gain far more than they would shell out in taxes. Social Security wouldn't have existed if FDR had said, I'm not going to raise anyone's taxes.feedback

Liza Gold

The stigma associated with mental illness and the erroneous belief that those with mental illness are inherently violent can only be reinforced by equating psychiatric disability and competence to manage one's finances as determined by the Social Security Administration with a mandate to release this status to the NICS background check system.feedback

Stamatis Giannisis - Euronews

In spite of the slim majority the SYRIZA led coalition government had a relatively quite night in parliament as it successfully managed to pass the 2016 budget through. There's no guarantee however, that this will be repeated in a few weeks time when further austerity legislation including a bill on the reform on social security with substantial pension slashes will be presented to the Greek national assembly.feedback

Louka T. Katseli

The external debt problem of Greece was transformed into a Greek private debt problem, with most families not being able to pay their taxes, pay social security contributions, pay mortgage loans,etc. That's why I thought as an economist that this was not really the appropriate programme for Greece.feedback

Eduardo Requejo

They are dead, because you cannot go to a bank and ask for credit. They tell you 'no, you have a social security debt.' Of course we have debts, but it is not our fault.feedback

Evangelos Fragoulis

As state-provided healthcare in Greece is associated with one's work status, a massive wave of around two million people losing their jobs meant they lost their social security.feedback

Viviane Reding

What the people who come to work bring to the taxation and social security is much more than they take out.feedback

Viviane Reding

The free movement and supposed invasion by the people who want to take advantage of the social security and health is an invention of politicians who like to have populist movements in order to win in elections. I'm mostly frustrated about the political leaders (of the UK). What is leadership if you just try with political movements and political speeches to gain votes? You are destroying the future of your people, actually.feedback

Viviane Reding

And those who take out of social security are much more the [UK] nationals than the European Union citizens, who take advantage of the free movement of people.feedback

Marco Florijn

They shouldn't be given social security, they should be sent back, because they have to look for a job themselves, we are not their parents.feedback

Dalia Dragan

Neither my husband nor I ever registered with social security or the job office. This affects us both. We've both lost our jobs. We'd like to go back to Romania but we've been paying for a house here for nine years and our son is in school here, completely settled in, since he was born here. So, for the moment, we're fighting to stay.feedback

Frank-Jürgen Weise

Unemployment declined again in March. Employment and social security contributions are increasing. The demand for workers continues to rise and is at a high level.feedback

Bernie Meyerson - International Business Machines

Imagine what Social Security would be like if you had to collect 30, 40 million pieces of paper and track them. It's physically impossible. So IBM was challenged. We actually have systems that sort punch cards, that store all the data about a person on a card which can then be sorted automatically by a machine at very high speed. That's a game changer.feedback

Licino Guedes

If the employee had to pay more toward social security and I paid less, the savings for me would still not amount to enough to hire another employee, so it wouldn't work.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Another reason to support this bill – even though there are plenty of reasons not to – is that it stops cuts in social security, Medicare and Medicaid. This is the most important assignment given to the Democratic leadership going to the table, to make sure there are no cuts in benefits, in Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security – that was achieved.feedback

Luc Cortebeeck

There have to be more job opportunities. It is possible with a greener economy. Don't touch social security. Go for more job opportunities.feedback

Françoise Grossetête

Until now, it's only emergency care. For example if a tourist is in a European Union member state or students move because of Erasmus can they benefit from social security rules, which allow for reimbursement in emergency cases. But this doesn't involve other care you may need sometime in your life.feedback

Hanaa Edwar

Our national budget is always spent on security and defence, not on social security. But we have 1.5 million widows, we have 3 million orphans, 10% of our population are disabled; we have displaced people who have nothing. And at the same time you find a lot of corruption in our apparatus. Not only should we speak about terrorism in Iraq. Terror in Iraq it is one thing; but when we speak about corruption, corruption also is the other side of the terror.feedback

Miriam Vollenbroek

There is no problem with acceptability by patients and therapists. There is also no problem with existing technology. But it is really an organisational change. So the only short-term problem is the financial aspect, at least here in the Netherlands; how our Social Security system is going to reimburse this kind of treatment: that could maybe take a long time.feedback

Barack Obama

This won't apply to the benefits folks get through Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare. And it won't apply to our national security including benefits for veterans. But it will apply to all other discretionary government programmes.feedback

Frank-Jürgen Weise

Jobs paying into the social security system and overall employment increased considerably and the demand for workers continued to increase.feedback

Lilian Thuram

It isn't football that is the problem. It is political choices. And yes, I think citizens should question their governments. And saying, Look yes, football is fine but perhaps other things are more important. Like constructing schools, hospitals, trying to establish the best social security cover possible for everyone. And yes, they are right actually.feedback

Harry M. Reid

We're willing to make difficult concessions as part of a balanced comprehensive agreement but will not agree to cut social security benefits as part of a small or short-term agreement, especially if that agreement gives more handouts to the rich.feedback
