    stipend for the "helper" economy that worked/works in caregiving, child rearing etc. and has no SS paper trail. SAHM/F, relatives that care for family members etc., random people in arrangements of support, etc.

    There's no point in doing anything other than improving SS, the shortage will fall on other various disorganized agencies and mechanisms and cost us more. It needs to be streamlined. It's better to raise SS benefits than to have people running around looking for foodstamps and subsidized housing and all the other compartmentalized hassles we make them endure.
