Give Social Security a RAISE!
Republicans and Wall Street billionaires can no longer claim that Social Security expansion is a fringe issue. With Democratic leadership behind this bill, it is clear that more and more politicians are standing with the American people.
The RAISE Act would:
- Enhance benefits for divorced spouses who were married less than ten years
- 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.
- Extend benefit eligibility for children of retired, disabled or deceased workers if the child is in high school, college or vocational school
