This April, the Social Security Advisory Board will recognize National Social Security Month with the launch of a new set of charts and data related to retirement. For more than a decade, SSAB has published and updated a Disability Chartbook, highlighting data related to the administration of Social Security’s disability programs: Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income. This month, we will start building up a comparable collection of charts on Social Security’s retirement program. We invite you to return to our website weekly for new chart collections.
For the first week of April, we will highlight data on when people are claiming Social Security, why, and what that means for their benefits. View the first installment here.
Week 1: When do people claim Social Security benefits?
Week 2: How does demography affect Social Security?
Week 3: Will Social Security be there when I retire?
