APPRECIATE IT. I’M BREAKING YOU BECAUSE I HAVE BREAKING NEWS.>>>NUMBERS ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE. WHEN DO THESE TWO SYSTEMS RUN OUT OF MONEY? EDWARD LAWRENCE IS WITH US AND HE’S GOING TO TELL US. GO, EDWARD. REPORTER: BAD NEWS IS SOCIAL SECURITY RUNS OUT OF MONEY BY THE TIME I RETIRE, IN 2035. THE TOTAL COSTS WILL START TO EXCEED THE EXPENDITURES FOR THE FIRST TIME NEXT YEAR. THAT’S THE FIRST TIME THAT’S HAPPENED SINCE 1982. BROKEN UP UNDER SOCIAL SECURITY, THE DISABILITY TRUST FUND ACTUALLY RUNS OUT OF MONEY IN 2052. THAT’S 20 YEARS LATER THAN PROJECTED LAST YEAR BECAUSE THEY HAD SLOWER THAN EXPECTED GROWTH, ALSO THE NUMBER OF DISABLED WORKERS HAS BEEN GOING DOWN AND THE NUMBER OF DISABILITY CLAIMS HAS BEEN GOING DOWN OVER TIME. MAINLY THAT’S VERY SIGNIFICANT. UNDER THE MEDICAL HOSPITAL INSURANCE TRUST FUND, THAT RUNS OUT OF MONEY IN SEVEN YEARS, 2026. THIS IS SOONER THAN PROJECTED LAST YEAR, POSSIBLY THEY SAY BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF ADEQUATE NURSING HOME FACILITIES AS WELL AS LOWER THAN EXPECTED GROWTH RELATED TO THAT AND LAST YEAR, EXPENDITURES OUTPACED INCOME BY $1.6 BILLION. NOW, ON THE MEDICARE SIDE, THE TOTAL COST OF MEDICARE WILL GROW FROM 3.7% OF GDP IN 2018 TO 5.9% OF GDP IN 2039. SUPPLEMENTAL TRUST FUND UNDER MEDICARE WILL NOT RUN OUT OF MONEY BECAUSE OF A NEW LAW THAT PASSED THAT SAYS THE GENERAL FUND EXPENDITURES WILL MAKE UP ANY DIFFERENCE. HOWEVER, IT IS GOING TO GROW AT OVER 6% OR HAS BEEN GROWING AT OVER 6% FOR BOTH PART D AND PART B, AND THAT’S RELATED TO A 4% GROWTH OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS WITH GDP. THE BOTTOM LINE FOR THE TRUST FUND IN THIS REPORT FOR THE TRUSTEES IN THIS REPORT IS THAT LAW MAKERS NEED TO DEAL WITH THIS NOW SO THESE PROGRAMS DO NOT RUN OUT OF MONEY. STUART: I AM GOING TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND THIS. DOES SOCIAL SECURITY RUN OUT OF MONEY SOONER THAN WE THOUGHT? REPORTER: IT WILL RUN OUT OF MONEY ONE YEAR SOONER THAN WE THOUGHT. STUART: OKAY. NOW, MEDICARE, DOES THAT — WHEN DOES — DOES THAT RUN OUT OF MONEY SOONER THAN WE THOUGHT? REPORTER: THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO MEDICARE. THE HOSPITAL INSURANCE RUNS OUT OF MONEY IN SEVEN YEARS. THAT IS SOONER THAN THEY THOUGHT. THE SECOND PART OF THAT IS THE SUPPLEMENTAL MEDICAL INSURANCE, IT WILL NOT RUN OUT OF MONEY. BECAUSE OF THE NEW LAW THAT WAS PASSED THAT SAID GENERAL FUND EXPENDITURES WILL MAKE UP ANY DIFFERENCE. THE BAD PART OF THAT IS IT WILL BE A GROWING PART OF OUR COSTS COMING UP LATER. STUART: SOCIAL SECURITY RUNS OUT ONE YEAR EARLIER, THE HOSPITAL FUND OF MEDICARE RUNS OUT IN
