Strengthen Retirement Security

 

 

The social security system was not designed to be a senior’s primary source of retirement income. Yet due to the gutting of traditional pension plans and the 40 year reduction in middle class levels and incomes, social security payments are now a main source of income for many senior citizens.

Retirement security can be improved by revising the income cap of $106,000 on social security taxes, forcing Congress to stop periodically raiding the social security trust fund, holding Wall Street and other financial institutions accountable for individual retirement account performance and educating ourselves on the importance of retirement planning.
