What we want to do in this episode is make sense of what exactly is happening with Social Security and which concerns are legit and which ones might be overblown. This isn’t the first time Social Security has had to make adjustments since it was originally introduced in 1935, and we’ll take you through what has changed over the past nearly 90 years.
