Strengthen Social Security
Americans who will retire in the coming decades face a confluence of factors that threaten their income security. Disappearing employer pensions, a 401(k) and IRA system that fails to provide meaningful retirement income to most Americans, stagnating wages, rising health and long-term care costs, and the continued phasing-in of cuts to Social Security.
Strengthen Social Security is hosting a conference, "Social Security's Role in Solving the Retirement Income Crisis," to discuss this crisis and the importance of Social Security as part of any policy response. CEPR Co-director Dean Baker will be on the first panel of the day discussing the "U.S. Retirement Income Crisis."
