The 117th Congress has convened. Due to Covid-19 and social distancing measures, the swearing in ceremonies lacked the pomp and circumstance of traditional opening day festivities. Despite the low-key start, lawmakers are already hard at work. This will be a busy session, but one that may offer hope for Social Security reform.
The Seniors Trust will continue to call on Congress to enact the Social Security Expansion Act. This landmark bill buttresses the long-term solvency of Social Security by expanding benefits for seniors – not cutting them. When passed, it will increase benefits for most recipients by about $65 each month.
