The CBO report (Congressional Budget Office – a non-partisan agency) says that Social Security is in worse shape than they originally thought! (And their original thought was it was in bad shape) They say the fund tops out by the year 2019. Are you retiring or will you be depending upon your retirement checks either before or after 2019? Are you depending upon a Social Security “safety net” that may not be there in the same shape it is today? The CBO says that drastic cuts in benefits or increases in taxes will be needed to put things in order. Ted Sudol from PreciousMetalsInvesting.com and Paul Mladjenovic, author of Precious Metals Investing For Dummies, discuss the use of precious metals as your personal safety net that really will be there when you need it.
