The subject of means testing is often mentioned when changes to Social Security is discussed.
Does anyone know what has ever been proposed or discussed as to what means testing might be involved or considered?
Would it be based on income? Probably not since the folks receiving SS benefits would typically not have earned income.
Would it be based on assets or net worth? Maybe, but, I forsee many problems with that plan.
What means testing has been considered?
