www.eleanorshope.org - NCPSSM Board Chair, Dr. Catherine Dodd, testified before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee today on the economic challenges facing America’s older women. 22 million older women receive Social Security benefits yet the inequalities they face threaten their retirement security. The National Committee’s Eleanor’s Hope initiative urges Congress to pass a number of improvements to the program including: providing Social Security credits for caregivers, improving Social Security survivor benefits, equalizing Social Security’s rules for disabled widows, strengthening the Social Security Cost of Living Allowance and boosting the basic Social Security benefit of all current and future beneficiaries.
