Retirement Security

The retirement income system will come under increasing stress in the years ahead, with Social Security facing a modest shortfall over the next 75 years, Disability Insurance facing insolvency by 2016, and employers increasingly replacing traditional defined-benefit pension plans with defined-contribution plans. In addition, tax incentives for retirement saving are poorly targeted. Policy Futures works to improve retirement income security for low- and moderate-income Americans.
