Here at the Council for Retirement Security, we’re focused on helping to protect Social Security benefits. Through our amazing audience and our Social Security Lock Box Petition, we can safeguard retirement.
But protecting benefits isn’t just about stopping cuts in the traditional sense. Not every proposed threat to retirement is as clear as reducing payments by a dollar amount. Some are about pushing the finish line forward for retirees.
Extending the retirement age constitutes a benefit cut, since people could potentially miss out on a portion of their money they’ve fairly earned, depending on their lifespan.
We support protecting retirement benefits. That means not slashing them, not putting them further away, and not forgetting to advocate for their protection. Don’t forget to follow us for more content like this.
