“Social Security has served as the foundation of retirement security for millions of Americans and has proven to be the country’s most effective poverty prevention program since first signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt 82 years ago,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat.

“Social Security provides key protections to 1 in 4 households, including over 60 million Americans who receive Social Security retirement, disability or survivor benefits. In addition, the Social Security program is especially important for workers with low earnings and less access to pensions. For communities of color, Social Security’s retirement benefits represent 90% or more of income for 45% of African Americans, 52% of Latinos, and 41% of Asian Americans. An estimated 6.4 million children under age 18 also benefit from Social Security, either because they receive benefits themselves or live in families where Social Security provides some or all household income.
