Social Security needs to be updated for the 21 st century so we can keep the promise for future generations. If our leaders don’t act, future retirees could lose up to $10,000 a year. But there won’t be any progress on updating Social Security without presidential leadership.
AARP has launched a 2016 election accountability campaign called Take a Stand which asks Presidential candidates to Take a Stand on their plans to update Social Security. AARP expects every Presidential candidate to lay out their plans to make Social Security financially sound so current and future generations can receive the adequate benefits they’ve earned.
