Most Americans Willing to Pay More to Fix Social Security

A new study by the National Academy of Social Insurance, finds that a majority of Americans polled, favor paying more for Social Security, in order to insure the solvency of the program. The opinions expressed in the survey were equally true of both Democratic and Republican participants. Majorities of those polled, oppose reduction of benefits, as a mechanism of balancing future finances.

About one third of respondents who were polled, were not aware of the Social Security Disability programs and mistakenly believed that Social Security was a retirement program only. When learning that the average benefit under Social Security Disability is $1,146.00 per month, a majority believed that amount to be “too low.”
