It used to be that senior Americans could rely on a “three-legged stool” for retirement security: pensions, personal savings and Social Security. But today most seniors can no longer count on pensions or personal savings in retirement. Social Security is now the primary source of income for many retirees. Yet some lawmakers in Washington want to slash Social Security, raise the retirement age to 70 and reduce the annual Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) to pay for other fiscal priorities. That’s why the National Committee’s fight to protect and strengthen Social Security has taken on an even greater urgency in recent years.
