For decades, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid have provided vital assistance to older Americans to help cover food, housing, health care, and other services. America’s seniors have spent their working lives paying into this system and deserve to receive the full benefits they were promised. 

Social Security & Retirement Benefits

Social Security has kept older Americans out of poverty and provided assistance for all senior citizens. Ensuring the long-term stability of Social Security remains one of my highest priorities. That’s why I have cosponsored the Social Security 2100 Act, which would expand benefits across the board, update cost-of-living adjustments to more accurately reflect the costs seniors face, ensure everyone can retire without falling into poverty, and ensure this bedrock program remains solvent through the end of this century. 

The current retirement system isn’t working for all Americans. The options available to workers differ significantly based on their areas of employment and the options for saving can be needlessly confusing. I am fighting to ensure our system for saving for retirement serves all working Americans. I introduced legislation, the Portable Retirement and Investment Account (PRIA) Act, to create universal, portable retirement and investment accounts that will be accessible to all Americans throughout their lives.
