    are getting about $1,000 per month and most of them have very little other income unless they work.  There are a few people who had high paying jobs who have much higher Social Security income but that isn't very common and it will be less common now that we no longer have many good paying jobs.

    Don't forget that out of that $1,000 per month you have to pay Medicare part B and Medicare supplement insurance unless you want to take your chances.

    As it is now, this Social Security isn't all that secure and really needs an upgrade.
