Arrangements by CONGO FUftF-RAL HOME. their 20s, 30s and 40s, by allowing younger people to divert more and more money over a period of years from Social Security contributions into other retirement investments. Clatworthy has said he would look at models of other public retirement privatization, such as an initiative in Chile. "I wouldn't even consider Chile," replied Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., Clatworthy's Democratic opponent. Biden criticized the Chilean approach because it raised employee contributions to their retirement fund from 7 percent to 10 percent of their salaries and removed the requirement that employers contribute to the fund. Although Biden contended the "Social Security system is solvent through the year 2029," neither candidate disputes that changes are needed. Eventually there won't be enough workers left to support the retirement of the Baby Boom generation. Biden offered several possibilities, including dropping 1 percentage point off the inflation rate used to calculate Social Security retirement increases. That would make the system solvent for 75 years, he said. Just increasing the retirement age from 67 to 68 later in the next century would save billions, Biden added. While there are years before Social Security faces financial problems, Medicare is probably solvent only through the vear 2001, according to a report from The Medicare Trust Fund Trustees. Biden wants to bo after frmul in the Medicare system to improve its solvency in the next 10 years "There is no need to affect benefits one penny," he said. But Clatworthy argued that Medicare recipients "need as many choices as possible," and should be able to select from insurance programs similar to the range of choices available to federal employees. "Competition drivop down prices," Clatworthy said. Oct. 24: 8:31 a.m. 301 S. West St. Investigation. 9:46 a.m. 900 block Lovering Ave. Gas main rupture. 9:51 a.m. East Ninth and North Pine streets.
