Iowans for Securing Social Security

Posted on 07/01/22

Keeping Social Security sound is a top priority for AARP Iowa. Social Security is a lifeline for millions of older Americans. By the numbers:

  • 0 – Number of payments Social Security has missed
  • 2035 – Year Social Security Trust Fund is insolvent unless Congress acts
  • 21,700,000 – Number of Americans Social Security keeps out of poverty
  • 87 – Number of years Social Security has been in existence
  • $1,669 – Average Social Security retirement benefit

You paid into it.
You earned it.
You deserve your benefits when you retire.

Help AARP make sure Social Security is financially sound for generations to come.
