Give Social Security a RAISE!
Republicans and their Wall Street cronies can no longer claim that Social Security expansion is a fringe issue. With Democratic leadership behind this bill, it is clear that YOU are making YOUR VOICE heard in Washington!
The RAISE Act would:
- Enhance benefits for widows and widowers by establishing insured status as retired workers, and creating an alternative benefit to reflect the survivor’s own worker benefit and the Primary Insurance Amount (PIA) of the deceased spouse;
- Enhance benefits for divorced spouses who were married less than ten years;
- Extend benefit eligibility for children of retired, disabled or deceased workers if the child is in high school, college or vocational school;
- Pay for this expansion by making millionaires and billionaires pay the same rate as the rest of us.
