CBO latest long-term Social Security projections - Plan Sponsor
The Congressional Budget Office released its latest long-term Social Security projections earlier this week, and the news is not good. The CBO forecasts the Social Security trust fund will be depleted by 2033, resulting in a 23 percent cut in benefit payments beginning in 2034. All the while, the current Congress debates the passage of a retirement policy known as SECURE 2.0, which focuses on incentivizing people to save more, improving retirement plans, and lowering costs for employers. Alex Ortolani reviews how this latest report reinforces the need to find a long-term solution to the looming Social Security crisis. Read Mr. Ortolani’s article here…
The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) believes Social Security must be preserved and modernized. This can be achieved with no tax increases by changing cost of living adjustments, the retirement age, and delayed credits. AMAC advocates for a bipartisan compromise, “The Social Security Guarantee Act,” taking selected portions of bills introduced by former Rep. Johnson (R-TX) and current Rep. Larson (D-CT) and merging them with the Association’s own research. One component is Social Security PLUS, a voluntary plan to allow all earners to have more income at retirement. This component is intended to appeal especially to younger workers. AMAC is resolute in its mission that Social Security be preserved and modernized and has gotten the attention of lawmakers in DC, meeting with a great many congressional offices and their staffs over the past several years.
