social security card1 e1296073260792 Is Social Security A Good Investment?A study out this month from the Urban Institute on Social Security examines whether or not the monies paid into Social Security over a lifetime of employment offer a good rate of return – in other words, is it worth it?  And the answer appears to be yes.

The study shows that Social Security and Medicare provide a positive ROI even after inflation – for as far as it is currently possible to project.  It also showed that women make out better than men (because they’re likely to live longer, be around to collect widow benefits and can take half a husband’s benefit if it’s higher).  Married couples fare better than single workers, and current retirees and baby boomers will see a better ROI than succeeding generations.

Here are the numbers:
