Addressing the Retirement Crisis Facing Women

NCPSSM Board Chair, Dr. Catherine Dodd, testified before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee today on the economic challenges facing America’s older women.  22 million older women receive Social Security benefits yet the inequalities they face threaten their retirement security.  The National Committee’s Eleanor’s Hope initiative urges Congress to pass a number of improvements to the program including: providing Social Security credits for caregivers, improving Social Security survivor benefits, equalizing Social Security’s rules for disabled widows, strengthening the Social Security Cost of Living Allowance and boosting the basic Social Security benefit of all current and future beneficiaries.
Hearing on "Social Security: Is A Key Foundation of Economic Security Working for Women?"

About 22 million women aged 65 and older receive Social Security benefits.  A woman who reaches age 65 can expect to live an additional 20 years.  For these women, Social Security represents a vitally important source of income, and is often their only available hedge against inflation.  Without Social Security, over half of these women would be living in poverty.  Even with Social Security, 11 percent of older women still live in poverty; for widows, the rate is worse, at 15 percent.  This is 50 percent higher than the poverty rate for all people 65 and older.
No Social Security for Nazis Act
