The biggest thing, the most overwhelming thing? There is absolutely NOTHING we can do about it.

Social Security & Medicare:

IT'S NOT AN ENTITLEMENT, I paid into it for 30 years.

I pay taxes on my $12K

I pay $100 a month to have Medicare.

The Government is not GIVING me anything.

30 years of piss poor jobs slightly above minimum wage. I paid into Social Security as my primary ONLY retirement plan. Impossible to save enough over the years.

Please don't forget that most of our 401K's were either destroyed or cashed in to survive after layoffs and downsizing.

Small stock portfolio? Tried to save our home from foreclosure by selling it all off. Only managed to have another year.
