Poll: Public Backs Social Security Now More Than Ever

Source: AFL-CIO

The Bush administration’s attempts to sell Social Security privatization not only have failed to win public support, they have broadened and strengthened positive attitudes toward Social Security, a recent poll by the AARP found. As Social Security marks its 70th anniversary in August, AARP found public confidence in Social Security has increased in recent years and Social Security has surpassed pensions and savings as the top source of income Americans expect to rely on in retirement.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Social Security into law on Aug. 14, 1935, and it since has become the nation’s most successful safety net, keeping millions of elderly and disabled workers out of poverty.

See the details of the survey, Social Security 70th Anniversary Survey Report: Trends Over Time, by AARP, a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people ages 50 and older, and get information, fact sheets and more on Social Security and other sources of retirement income at the AFL-CIO Retirement Security website.
