Just got my social security information today. Included in the letter was the following:

Benefits for Same-sex Couples
Due to a Supreme Court decision, we now are able to pay benefits to some same-sex couples. We encourage people who think they may be able to apply now. Learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov/same-sexcouples .

The web site states: On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. Social Security is now processing some retirement spouse claims for same-sex couples and paying benefits where they are due. We continue to work closely with the Department of Justice. In the coming weeks and months, we will develop and implement additional policy and processing instructions. If you are in a same-sex marriage or other legal same-sex relationship, even if you live in a state that prohibits same-sex marriage, we encourage you to apply right away.

This can only mean one thing. Get ready to pay more into your social security account.

They've already been paying into your benefits. Now it's equal. Get over it.

You been saying that for 20 years now. But if we have or had it our way we would have done away with it by now.

Here you go. Not my words but very true. So get ready to pay up.

As I pointed out in my recent Bloomberg op ed, Social Security is desperately broke — 31 percent underfunded to be exact. This is not my opinion. This is Social Security’s own measure of its unfunded liability contained in table IVB6 of its most recent Trustees Report.

The table’s a bit hard to decipher, but it shows that the system short $20.5 trillion in present value. It needs a 31 percent immediate and permanent increase in annual revenues to pay, over time, all of Social Security’s promised benefits. That’s close to a 4 percentage-point payroll tax hike! If we wait 20 years, the 31 percent figure rises to 50 percent, which translates into a 6.2 percentage-point tax hike. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kotlikoff/2012/07...
