We worked with Democracy for America, MoveOn.org and Social Security Works on this infographic about expanding social security and how it will help all Americans.
Unfortunately, retirement is not as secure as people believe. In fact, 67% of Americans won’t be able to afford their standard of living once they retire-including health and long term care. Nearly 2/3 of individuals rely on social security for 23% of their income, and 36% of seniors say that social security makes up 90% of their income. This proposed budget creates a new consumer price index (CPI) that helps track inflation, along with cost of living adjustments.
