When Will the 2022 Social Security Trustees Report be Published? - Senate Finance Committee
In a somewhat scathing letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Republican members of the Senate Finance Committee and Subcommittee on Social Security have requested an update on Social Security’s financial condition and, specifically, information on when the 2022 Trustees Report on Social Security can be expected. The Trustees’ report, due by law on April 1st of each year, wasn’t received by Congress until August of last year – over 150 days late. The new letter to Secretary Yellen reminded her that the Trustees Report is critical to Congress’ ability to enact Social Security reform, and that another delay this year is unacceptable as Congress considers legislation to restore Social Security to financial solvency. Many of us who deal daily with Social Security issues are also anxious to know how Social Security’s finances are faring as the COVID-19 pandemic eases, so are also hoping for an on-time release of the Trustees Report. The full story, including the full text of Senate Republicans’ letter to Secretary Yellen, can be seen in this piece posted at the Senate Finance Committee’s website. Click here to see the article.
