Abstract

The primary intent of this degree paper is to discuss the current problems confronting Title II of the Social Security Act. An attempt has also been made to highlight the four major problems, namely the short and long-term financing problems, the negative effects on savings, the benefit increase dilemma, and the mandatory nature of the program, as well as presenting divergent viewpoints of many authorities on these problems.

The social security program is very important to mil lions of elderly and disabled Americans. Without it, the economic hardships for these groups of people would be unbearable.

The data for this study were obtained from books, periodicals, newspapers and unpublished materials.
