"With a dysfunctional election process, security breaches, and foreign sovereignty actors compromising; 1)social opinion, 2)technology, and 3)operational process, the 2020 primary and general presidential elections have already become intense talking points. To-date many suspicions and investigations are underway into the prior 2016 US Presidential Election. The formal politics of presenting a candidate to the masses of registered voters begins after the candidate’s registration process. One major change from the old-standard of well oiled candidates presenting their views via broadcast/cable television, is the Internet and social media platforms, with the ability of the candidate and others to optimize cost effectiveness and maximize their influence of this essentially open forum of advertising. This Social Media Exploitation influence also extends to the candidates opposition. Essentially the candidate must immediately after registration, at the very least, get in front of the social media viewing audience as well as traditional forms to obtain visibility to each registered voter, whereby prvoding an opportunity of being competitive. My caution back in 2016 to watch for extreme ‘Conflicts of Interest’ of highly-visible government candidates with global business holdings is currently playing out in the public forums. Absurdly, maintaining all those conflicts of interest appears to be entirely acceptable — a reflection of ethics laws woefully unprepared for the US governing by global-capitalist-extremist business tycoons. Further, we must constantly be evaluating the security and correctness of our elections and those candidates certified as winning those elections. As well as evaluating the election process, throughout the incumbent’s tenure in office, a critical and keen watchdog process of their performance must be kept diligent and explore all options of evaluation and alteration to secure the presidential administration from dysfunction by any one single individual." -Mark Mariotti

Social Security Watch 


TheFutureWay
Social Security has provided financial protection for our nation's people for over 80 years. Chances are, you either receive Social Security benefits or know someone who does. With retirement, disability, and survivors benefits, Social Security is one of the most successful anti-poverty programs in our nation's history. We are constantly expanding our online services to give you freedom and control when conducting business with Social Security.

Social Security Combined Trust Funds Gain One Year Says Board of Trustees - Disability Fund Shows Strong Improvement—Twenty Years

The Social Security Board of Trustees today released its annual report on the long-term financial status of the Social Security Trust Funds. The combined asset reserves of the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance (OASI and DI) Trust Funds are projected to become depleted in 2035, one year later than projected last year, with 80 percent of benefits payable at that time.

The OASI Trust Fund is projected to become depleted in 2034, the same as last year’s estimate, with 77 percent of benefits payable at that time. The DI Trust Fund is estimated to become depleted in 2052, extended 20 years from last year’s estimate of 2032, with 91 percent of benefits still payable.

In the 2019 Annual Report to Congress, the Trustees announced:

  • The asset reserves of the combined OASI and DI Trust Funds increased by $3 billion in 2018 to a total of $2.895 trillion.
  • The total annual cost of the program is projected to exceed total annual income, for the first time since 1982, in 2020 and remain higher throughout the 75-year projection period. As a result, asset reserves are expected to decline during 2020. Social Security’s cost has exceeded its non-interest income since 2010.
  • The year when the combined trust fund reserves are projected to become depleted, if Congress does not act before then, is 2035 – gaining one year from last year’s projection. At that time, there would be sufficient income coming in to pay 80 percent of scheduled benefits.

“The Trustees recommend that lawmakers address the projected trust fund shortfalls in a timely way in order to phase in necessary changes gradually and give workers and beneficiaries time to adjust to them,” said Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting Commissioner of Social Security. “The large change in the reserve depletion date for the DI Fund is mainly due to continuing favorable trends in the disability program. Disability applications have been declining since 2010, and the number of disabled-worker beneficiaries receiving payments has been falling since 2014.”

Other highlights of the Trustees Report include:

  • Total income, including interest, to the combined OASI and DI Trust Funds amounted to just over $1 trillion in 2018. ($885 billion from net payroll tax contributions, $35 billion from taxation of benefits, and $83 billion in interest)
  • Total expenditures from the combined OASI and DI Trust Funds amounted to $1 trillion in 2018.
  • Social Security paid benefits of nearly $989 billion in calendar year 2018. There were about 63 million beneficiaries at the end of the calendar year.
  • The projected actuarial deficit over the 75-year long-range period is 2.78 percent of taxable payroll – lower than the 2.84 percent projected in last year’s report.
  • During 2018, an estimated 176 million people had earnings covered by Social Security and paid payroll taxes.
  • The cost of $6.7 billion to administer the Social Security program in 2018 was a very low 0.7 percent of total expenditures.
  • The combined Trust Fund asset reserves earned interest at an effective annual rate of 2.9 percent in 2018.

The Board of Trustees usually comprises six members. Four serve by virtue of their positions with the federal government: Steven T. Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury and Managing Trustee; Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting Commissioner of Social Security; Alex M. Azar II, Secretary of Health and Human Services; and R. Alexander Acosta, Secretary of Labor. The two public trustee positions are currently vacant.

Social Security Announces 2.8 Percent Benefit Increase for 2019
Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for more than 67 million Americans will increase 2.8 percent in 2019, the Social Security Administration announced today.

The 2.8 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 62 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2019. Increased payments to more than 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 31, 2018. (Note: some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits). The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s B ureau of Labor Statistics.

Some other adjustments that take effect in January of each year are based on the increase in average wages. Based on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will increase to $132,900 from $128,400.

Social Security and SSI beneficiaries are normally notified by mail in early December about their new benefit amount. This year, for the first time, most people who receive Social Security payments will be able to view their COLA notice online through their my Social Security account. People may create or access their my Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

Information about Medicare changes for 2019, when announced, will be available at www.medicare.gov. For Social Security beneficiaries receiving Medicare, Social Security will not be able to compute their new benefit amount until after the Medicare premium amounts for 2019 are announced. Final 2019 benefit amounts will be communicated to beneficiaries in December through the mailed COLA notice and my Social Security Message Center.

The Social Security Act provides for how the COLA is calculated. To read more, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/cola.

NOTE TO CORRESPONDENTS: Attached is a fact sheet showing the effect of the various automatic adjustments.

‘free to the user’ Business Model Watch  


We must continually and vigilantly be EXTREMELY mindful of the digital services that use a ‘free to the user’ business model, using only the targeted direct advertising-supported revenue. This business model corrupts the information which the user is viewing, and we must ALWAYS be mindful that the advertising-supported sources intent is specifically and intentionally directed towards an influence of our free-will opinion, NOT a balanced conversation.

Obviously there is no ‘free lunch’ and somehow these businesses must respond to their shareholders demand for profits. To keep their business profitable they in-turn provide this ‘free to the user’ at a cost to those entities that can profit by presenting their perversion of facts via advertising or a collection of the users data.

The following provides a more in-depth view and details of the MultiStreamMedia support to view alternatives to ‘free to the user’ model:

We can only imagine what the future way of these ‘free to the user’ digital services will look like. The current explosion of user awareness, and account deletion, ultimately indicates the demand of unbiased facts, privacy and the security of their data and the information which is made available for their viewing.
