News Release

The Social Security and Latino’s Summit, a joint venture between the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare and AARP, is designed to bring awareness to the importance of safeguarding Social Security's future by finding commonsense, non-partisan solutions that extend the solvency of the program while expanding benefits.

The National Committee is committed to expanding Social Security benefits for all seniors, and especially recognizes the difficulties Latinos face in retirement because they tend to have lower earnings and less pension coverage than other Americans. Our Senior Vote 2016 initiative mobilizes voters to advocate for income equality for economic security in retirement for all.
