MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

For many Social Security might be the only form of income they have when it comes time to retire. Almost every day we see headlines in the news telling us that Social Security is being depleted. Is Social Security in trouble? If so what does this mean to us?

Our guest today, former regional commisioner of the Social Security Department, Gordon Sherman.

Gordon Sherman is retired from 43-years of service to the military and federal government. During the last 23 years of his career, he was the southeast regional commissioner of the Social Security Administration.  Mr. Sherman’s many banking affiliations over the years included board positions for Citizens & Southern Bank of Gwinnett County, East Metro Division of Citizens & Southern Bank of Atlanta, The Enterprise Bank of Dunwoody, Georgia, Fidelity National Bank, Fidelity Southern and Regions Bank of Atlanta where he served as board chairman. The National Public Service Award, Ewell T. Bartlett Humanity in Government Award, three Presidential Executive Awards and a Making The King Holiday Award are among the many accolades Sherman has received. He earned a B.S. from Auburn University, a J.D., LL.M. and an honorary LL.D. from Woodrow Wilson College of Law and is a graduate of the Senior Governmental Managers Program, Harvard University, the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.
