Social Security Inflation Rate unrealistic
Currently ESPlanner grows social security benefits for those already collecting by the inflation rate entered in Assumptions. The actual increase of benefits has been less than inflation - even the default 3% - by a sizable percentage for years. Will the program be revised to allow the SS benefit inflation rate to be set by the user?
If this is not feasible, what can a user do to make ESPlanner's future SS benefits more realistic.
