Social Security calculator

Heritage Foundation has published a Social Security calculator You can fool with the assumptions and see how well or poorly you do under various scenarios.

By all historical data, you do better with some personal accounts. Of course, we could expect that the situation in the next eighty years will be a lot worse than the Great Depression and wars we experienced over the last eighty years, but I leave it to you whether the depressing stock market is a buying opportunity or a selling frenzy. I am sticking to the buy and hold system.
