Not necessarily. It would, however, require abandoning fiction and returning to looking at SS as what it was designed to be--welfare to keep old people without private resources from starving in the streets, but just barely.Anyone who worked can collect social security no matter their income level. People retired today with 10 million in retirement funds can and do collect it. So if it was intended to do what you said above where and when did it get changed so anyone could collect it who was well above poverty?
