With much of the national discourse on entitlements focused on mounting national debt, widening budget deficits, waste and abuse, and the looming ‘insolvency’ of landmark initiatives like Medicare and Social Security, it might surprise you to learn the facts. This 4-minute video from the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) – a nonprofit, nonpartisan group of the nation’s leading experts on social insurance – explains the basics of Social Security.
The video lays out the program’s purpose, who pays for it, who gets it, and what it means to seniors and working families.
You can learn more about Social Security from NASI’s website at http://www.nasi.org/learn/social-security/just-the-facts.
