Social Security

For the first time in modern U.S. history, workers have less retirement security than their parents did. Preparing for a secure retirement is particularly challenging for lower-wage earners. EPI’s retirement program examines the inequities in the current retirement system and evaluates how proposed changes to Social Security would affect not just future budget deficits, but living standards of the elderly. EPI is a member of Retirement USA and the Strengthen Social Security coalition.
