How Well Will Social Security Serve Future Retirees?

AARP Public Policy Institute Sponsors Panel Discussion Addressing Retirement Needs for Future Generations Sept. 22


Washington, DC – As the President’s deficit commission considers changes to the future of Social Security, AARP’s Public Policy Institute will host some of the nation’s leading experts to discuss how well Social Security may serve future retirees at the next AARP Solutions Forum on Wednesday, Sept. 22.

Panelists from different perspectives will look at the importance of Social Security to seniors and the impact that increased life expectancy, changing characteristics of pensions, growing health care costs, and other trends will have on the ability of future retirees to achieve adequate retirement security. A new analysis by AARP PPI on the reliance on Social Security by older Americans in diverse communities will be released at the event.

Please email or call 202-434-2560 if you plan to attend.
