Unlike people with fat pensions......some of us have to live off our nest eggs. That nest egg will usually have 'excess income' which we will have to re-invest- or it automatically does like stock funds unless you specifically withdraw the cap gains distributions and the dividends during the year. I 'take' out and us about 2/3rds of what I have to pay tax on...... the rest has to be re-invested if I expect my nest egg to survive. Thus, SS is about 1/3rd of what spend each year. Of course, by the time they take out my Medicare payment........and I have them take out some withholding........ if you figure 'net SS', that is an even smaller contribution to spendable money. t.
