  •  The trust fund is sound when it has a year's (6+ / 0-)

    reserves in it. Right now it has more than a year's reserves, so the trust fund shrinking over the next couple decades is not only perfectly fine, it's part of the plan.

    The trust fund is only "unsound" once it falls below the 1 year reserves level.
