Happy 86th Anniversary to Social Security

August 14th, 2021|Comments Off on Happy 86th Anniversary to Social Security

One of our nation's most popular federal programs marks another year of success on August 14th.  Social Security—the income security program for workers, retirees, people with disabilities, and their families - was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt 86 years ago. But it's been almost four decades since the program was last reformed. In 1983, Congress took action to shore up Social Security's finances under the acute threat of insolvency. Fast-forward to the present.  We are confronted with a looming shortfall in the program's finances amid a growing demand to boost benefits.  But bi-partisan action to strengthen Social Security has been elusive—despite the best efforts of some lawmakers to put forward solid proposals.

Rep. Larson to Introduce Revised Social Security Expansion Bill

Next week, Social Security will mark its 86th anniversary of providing Americans with basic financial security in old age (and, since 1956, upon becoming disabled). And yet, quite incredibly, baseline Social Security benefits haven’t been expanded in fifty years – even though seniors’ living costs have soared over the decades. Congressman John Larson (D-CT) is once again hoping to change that. Larson, a true Social Security champion who introduced legislation to boost Social Security in previous Congresses, has now released the details of a revamped bill to increase benefits and extend the program’s solvency.
