It is not "lose out on all".

Ya, don't pick my nit.

For couples that both contributed with adult children, you effectively lose all - either your own or your spouses.

Regardless, there is no assurance that a person or their family will get back at least the amount of their contributory tax (minus the disability allocation). I find that to problematic especially in the case of early death.
