S.269: Social Security 2100 Act

Overview

The Social Security 2100 Act (S.269/H.R. 860) provides the following: |

• Across-the-board benefit increase for current and new beneficiaries; |
• Improved cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) that takes into account the true costs incurred by seniors; |
• Stronger minimum benefit, so someone who works their whole life does not retire into poverty and;|
• Tax cut for over 12 million Social Security recipients by eliminating the tax on their benefits |

Social Security is the most important source of retirement income for 4 out of 5 seniors. It also provides protections to disabled workers and families who have lost a breadwinner. With common sense steps like those in the Social Security 2100 Act, Congress can improve benefits while ensuring Social Security remains finally strong throughout the century.
