WHAT WE NEED:
The Financial Planning Association recently launched an innovative educational tool, the Social Security Predictor, geared to help people understand the issues around Social Security solvency. This tool is unique because it provides information on the impact of Social Security bankruptcy and proposed fixes on an individual's benefits.
In addition to the Social Security Predictor, the Financial Planning Association also provides a free, interactive tool, FPA Starter Roadmap, to help Americans find out if they are financially on track to meet their goals.
