(GALLUP) Rising concerns over whether Medicare and Social Security will go away

The following is from Gallup News Poll.

Seventy-three percent of U.S. adults under the age of 65 report that they are “worried” (41%) or “extremely worried” (32%) that Medicare will not be available when they are eligible to receive it, a six-percentage-point jump since 2022, according to a new study by West Health and Gallup.

The increase in concern is sharpest among those aged 50 to 64 (up 13 points to 74%) and 40 to 49 (up nine points to 83%, the highest level of all age groups).

Worries over Social Security are even higher and have also grown significantly — 80% of respondents report that they are worried (33%) or extremely worried (47%), compared with 75% in 2022.

Among those aged 50 to 61 — the group closest to being eligible for Social Security — 81% are now worried, compared with 72% in 2022, a nine-point increase.

he West Health-Gallup 2024 Survey on Aging in America was conducted by web and mail Nov. 13, 2023-Jan. 8, 2024, with 5,149 adults aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia as a part of the Gallup Panel.

Full results from the new study can be found in the West Health-Gallup 2024 Survey on Aging in America report, which provides a comprehensive look at Americans’ changing attitudes, behaviors and trends related to growing older, with a special emphasis on healthcare and safety net programs.

  1. Medicare has already gone away. It is now at totally failed program. Can’t get a doctor, everything now comes with a surcharge and you need to most expensive additional insurance on top of your Medicare monthly payments to even get in the door.

    The only good part is avoiding iatrogenic medicine which is a leading cause of death in the US: medical mistakes by the system itself. Medicare today is hoax right up there with Climate Change™. People, stop voting for Democrats.

    You are far better off keeping your own money and taking your chances on your own. Bring back regular fee for service medical care directly with private physicians. And get rid of the rapacious buffers than now exist between doctor and patient .
