as for SS, the main problem [imo] is that SS taxes went into general revenue. if taxes were calibrated to rise and fall to just cover SS spending that would eliminate much of the problem by itself. i dont see major increases in retirement age as necessary but some may be. if it is necessary and someone is not able to work for a few more years they can try another job [likely at a lower wage-sorry but wages generally reflect productivity] or go on disability. the latter is not optimal of course.
