    GETTING married means making a lot of changes to daily life, especially for those who rely on Social Security payments. Newlyweds who depend on Social Security must report their marriage and other changes, or risk losing benefits. 1Getting married can affect SSI benefitsCredit: Getty A ruling from November 2021 made it so married couples of all genders may be entitled to Social Security spousal or survivors’ benefits, according to Social Security Administration.

    Allison Shelley | Getty Images News | Getty Images The clock is ticking when it comes to how long Congress has to act to repair Social Security's trust funds. New projections from the program's trustees show the combined trust funds will be depleted in 2035, at which point 80% of benefits will be payable. That's a year later than last year's projected depletion date. Still, the outlook for the program's ability to continue to pay full benefits as promised is grim. Lawmakers generally have a handful of options, including cutting benefits, raising taxes or a combination of both. But those are tough choices for leaders who want to stay in the public's good graces, leading Social Security to be called the "third rail" of politics. Notably, some lawmakers have put forward proposals to shore up the system, including the Social Security 2100 Act proposed by Rep. John Larson, D-Conn.

    (CNN)The holiday season is right around the corner, and for many that means more time spent with family across generations. Before you demand that your children drop their smartphone to talk meaningfully about gratitude at the Thanksgiving dinner table, take a moment to consider what you're asking. When it comes to generational divides, it's hard to find one bigger than technology use, especially social media. How to talk to teens about technology use (and reduce it) is one of the most common questions I get from parents in my child and adolescent psychiatry clinic. Adults worry that technology overuse is taking a toll on their children's mental health. For teens, it's more complicated. Whether it's social media, gaming or online chat forums, the digital landscape has become fundamentally integrated into their everyday life.Faced with that conflict, I typically ask parents and caregivers not only how much their kids are using technology, but how they are using it and how that use is impacting their headspace. Once we know the answers to those questions, we collaborate to find solutions. Rather than...
    A Social Security Administration office in San Francisco.Getty Images The debt ceiling debate has sparked conversation about whether Social Security payments will still go out on time. However, Congress also faces another deadline with regard to the nation's largest social insurance program. In just 13 years the trust funds Social Security relies on to pay retirement and disability benefits will be depleted, according to the most recent Social Security trustees' report. While benefit checks will still go out, just 78% of promised benefits will be payable at that time. The recent trustees report bumped up the estimated depletion date by one year, a better outcome than had been initially feared when the Covid-19 pandemic first set in.

Next June marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of Equo, the green party in Spain and, after a decade “defending ecological and social justice as central axes of its policies”, considers it necessary to “relaunch the green space in Spain”, according to a statement from the training. Equo’s co-spokesperson, Florent Marcellesi, assured that given the current climate and health emergency situation, “we are starkly seeing the importance of health, science, ecology and equity”, therefore “The reconstruction of the country can only be done in a green and fair way.” “The objective is to promote green wave that has hit much of Europe and that more and more people complain in our country ”, stressed Marcellesi. The political formation indicates that, in addition, a decade of the 15M has passed, but “the inequality and citizen disaffection that demanded a new policy are still there.” “At the same...
    (CNN)Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and city officials unveiled a series of proposals to reform the city's policy and procedures on search warrants in the fallout of a botched raid on the home of a social worker in 2019. Lightfoot, along with Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, emphasized that the proposal requires that any individual who is at a location subjected to a search warrant must be treated with "dignity and respect."

Taylor's death has prompted cities across the country to move to ban or rein in no-knock, forcible-entry raids frequently used to serve narcotics search warrants.Chicago has been under fire since its Police Department executed a mistaken raid in February 2019 on the home of Anjanette Young, who stood naked and handcuffed in...
