Here is what we will see in the upcoming Social Security Trustees Report:

  • Social Security has a large and growing surplus―$2.9 trillion today, and a projected $2.95 trillion next year;
  • Social Security is extremely affordable with less than one penny of every dollar spent on administrative costs;
  • It can pay out ALL benefits owed for approximately the next one-and-a-half decades―until 2034―and 77% of all benefits owed after that;
  • With modest legislative increases―asking the wealthy to pay their fair share―we can afford to expand benefits for millions of Americans.

That’s the real story about Social Security that Wall Street billionaires and their local news outlets are trying to bury.

Help us counter the unlimited resources of Wall Street who want nothing more than to get their greedy hands on our retirement security. Donate to Social Security Works today to fight back and defend Social Security!

“Senate Republicans just voted to cut taxes for billionaires like Donald Trump, his family, and big corporations, which will trigger an automatic $400 billion cut to Medicare. But this is not over. The House and the Senate must agree to a conference bill and pass that―giving us more time to apply pressure.”
