Synopsis

Social Security by Paul Ruschmann

Social Security, created in 1935 during President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration, has helped millions of older Americans avoid poverty. But today, the system faces serious financial problems. Critics warn that the system cannot survive unless it is reformed. The leading proposal for reform would allow workers to invest part of their Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts. Reformers insist that these accounts would avert Social Security's collapse, make workers more self-reliant, and spur economic growth. Defenders of the current system insist that Social Security does not need major restructuring. In their opinion, adjustments to the payroll tax, benefit structure, and retirement age, along with greater savings by workers, would preserve Social Security and ensure future generations a secure retirement. Read more about the key issues in this important ongoing debate in Social Security.
