While Social Security makes up a portion of your retirement income strategy, it was never designed to provide enough benefits on its own for a comfortable retirement. It may only cover one-third, or even less, of your retirement needs.
In fact, you will most likely need a combination of Social Security and one or more other types of retirement funds in order to maintain your style of living.
