Preserving Social Security and It’s Importance to African Americans

Posted by Hopeton on February 16, 2013

One of the most important aspects of economics in the African American community is Social Security.  According to the  research of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM), about 75 percent of the African American beneficiaries are dependent on Social Security for at least half of their income and 40 percent of them rely on it  for all of their income.  To learn more about the impact of Social Security on African Americans listen to the podcast of my Economic Perspectives interview with Max Richtman, President of NCPSSM: Max Richtman Interview.
