A pension is a guaranteed income for life. What is your $11,000 currently doing? What is the range of values it could take on if you left it where it was?

[A defined benefit (this is what Social Security is currently) pension is a guarantee for life, providing the employer stays in business and has adequately funded the plan.]

[A defined contribution (this what President Bush wants to change part of Social Security to) is NOT a guarantee for life or for any period of time. The amount of money that is accumulated will last for a specific time period...solely dependent upon how it is managed.]
