Congressional Budget Office Forecasts Social Security Shortfall In 2011

According to the Congressional Budget, Social Security will post a $45 billion shortfall in fiscal 2011 year. According to the same report, Social Security will pay out more in benefits than it accepts in payroll taxes through at least 2021.

The Congressional Budget office announced the report in its bi-annual assessment of the United States budget. The CBO is a non-partisan office, which provides an economic analysis to the Congress. The office states the deficits would total $547 billion from 2012 to 2021.

The CBO forecast excludes transfers into the program from interest and other payments. According to the CBO, the weakest part of the current Social Security program is Social Security Disability payments. The office forecasts that fund will deplete in 2017, if it continues without any legislative changes.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
