Bill Hopes to Extend Social Security for Students to Age 26

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) yesterday introduced legislation to extend Social Security benefits to students who are survivors, children of disabled workers, and eligible grandchildren of retired workers.
