Many Americans Rely On Social Security Entirely

A shocking 46.1 percent of Americans die with less than $10,000 to their names and rely on Social Security benefits to pay the bills, according to a recent study by James Poterba at MIT, Steven Venti at Dartmouth and David Wise at Harvard.

Many of these people don't even own a home according to the study, which looked at the wealth of people of all ages from 1993 until 2008.
