Jan. 23, 2015
Compilation of advice from articles in major news outlets on social security and financial planning. From the Wall Street Journal, William Reichenstein, Ph.D., professor of finance and The Pat and Thomas R. Powers Chair of Investment Management at Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business, says Congress needs to revamp Social Security to ensure that retirees will receive about 75% of their benefits in case the trust fund is depleted. He suggests using a new measure that yields a lower inflation than what the current formula provides. "I believe most of us would rather have a slightly lower level of promised benefits that we can depend on than to have a potentially dramatic reduction in benefits about 2033,” Reichenstein said. (Eric Eckert, Baylor Media Communications specialist, covers research and faculty in the business school.)
