Social Security and Welfare
The United States’ primary “safety-net” programs are increasingly failing those they are supposed to serve. Social Security provides income support for America's seniors, but is financially unsound and unfairly favors some Americans over others. IWF analysts explore how Social Security can be changed to restore fiscal health and make it a better, fairer system for all Americans. Similarly, IWF examines how our welfare programs can be changed so that they help those in need return to self- sufficiency rather than encourage a counter-productive cycle of dependency.
