Calls for Social Security Expansion Grow Louder in Washington
It was the height of PANARITES about to make a turning middle-aged career in 2010 when her father died. At the age of 50, she has a master’s degree in cultural diplomacy at the University of Southern California and was looking for a job in the non-profit sector. That plan stopped when I moved to Maryland, where she grew up, to care for her mother.
“Like a lot of care providers, I had no idea what was happening in,” she said. “I finished a lot of time and attention spent, there was no time to take care of myself, not to mention the production of income.”
Ms. Panarites did not regret the three years she spent care of her mother, who now lives in an assisted living facility in Florida.
But wrapping damage not only their career prospects but her future retirement security as well. Her income guarantee annual social – is expected in the $ 18.500 if the files for benefits when it reaches full retirement age in 2026 – will not be less than 20 percent, at least they can be expected if she did not leave the work force, according to a rough estimate of the social security administration.
There will be a growing number of legislators and policymakers, such as Ms. Panarites
and other caregivers to receive some relief as part of a broader expansion and modernization of social security benefits effortlessly.
Until recently, it was all the talk in Washington about Social Security cuts. But the People’s Progressive Alliance Qaeda began a campaign of expansion in nearly three years,
and they have succeeded in transferring the concept to the center of the Democratic Party.
