Social Security was created more than 75 years ago to ensure seniors would have a steady stream of income when they retired. It is a promise that has been kept for generations. You pay into Social Security, you get the benefits you earned. While Social Security is not in crisis, modest changes, can preserve and protect the program so current and future generations will receive the full benefits they have earned. If our newly elected President or Members of Congress do not act in 2017, future retirees could lose up to $10,000 a year in benefits. Every year our leaders wait and do nothing, finding a solution grows more difficult.
