Join the discussion on Wednesday when we’ll get an update on social security.

As one who has yet to reach 30, I fully expect that the contributions I pay through FICA into the Social Security system will be for naught in terms of funding my retirement. I contribute to my own retirement fund with the expectation that it will be all I have when I reach retirement age. Sadly, I see a large number of my peers saying that they aren’t worried about funding their own retirement fund, as they believe that the Federal government will take care of them.
