You've Earned a Say: National Survey Results

AARP conducted a series of surveys among  adults at least 18 years old that finds that when it comes to Medicare and Social Security, the public believes Washington is trying to make too many decisions behind closed doors and Washington needs to spend more time listening to ordinary citizens like them. The public feels that both Medicare and Social Security are important to people’s health and financial security in retirement, however confidence in the programs being there throughout retirement is not very strong.

Key findings from the national survey are shown below. Surveys were also conducted among adults at least 18 years old in Colorado, Florida, Ohio and Virginia as well as among nationally representative samples of African-American and Hispanic adults.
