Easy-to-understand breakdown of one of the hottest political and economic issues in the U.S. today
-- The future of Social Security as we know it is in serious question; this book will address all elements of the sweeping changes that are being proposed to the system in Washington even today.
-- There is little current competition for this title. Of the ones that do exist, none will be as comprehensive as The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Social Security.

Why do we pay social security taxes? When and why was social security invented? Who pays social security? Who doesn't? And what's all this about privatizing the social security system and investing it in the stock market? In The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Social Security, author Lita Epstein explains the intricacies and benefits of this government program that was founded in 1935 by President Roosevelt to help out poverty-stricken senior citizens. The author will cover how social security can fund your retirement (at least partially); the requirements one must meet to be eligible for social security; and protecting your benefits. The author will also cover, in depth, the effect privatization of the social security system will mean for millions of baby boomers. Such related topics as Medicare and Medigap will also be covered.
