"Raising the retirement age would inflict further hardship among a group of workers who are likely to face health and economic problems in their 60s." –Doug Hart, President, Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans
The following statement was issued today by Edward F. Coyle, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans:
“On Tuesday, August 14, Social Security celebrates its 77th birthday. This week, retirees across the country celebrate the program that they can rely on for modest benefits when they need them most. Before Social Security, seniors worked until the day they died, because they could never afford to retire.
