“Battle Lines Form in the Fight Over Social Security Payment Reductions”

Article Link

This August 5, 2015 MSN Money article talks about the impending crisis involving the money in the SSDI program drying up by the end of 2016.  The article includes a few ideas being tossed around for correcting the problem or at least for buying time until a solution can be found.  The article indicates that less than 1% of the social Security tax paid by employees goes into funding SSDI compared to over 5% going into retirement. One idea in the article is to increase the percentage of the Social Security tax by a couple of percentage points to increase the amount of money going into the disability fund.
