NASI Releases Video Outlying Survey On Social Security Benefits

On Monday, we discussed the importance of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to the country’s financial security. Earlier this month, the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) released a short video highlighting the importance of the Social Security program, in honor of its 78th Anniversary.

The video, titled ‘Social Security: Americans Agree’ focuses on a survey done through the NASI, which found that 75 percent of respondents said the country should consider increasing benefits to people who rely on the program. The video also noted that 7 in 10 Americans see SSI as the “foundation of their retirement”. The survey also found that 82 percent of Americans are willing to pay more in taxes for SSA benefit programs.

Among the survey’s other findings:

  • In various age groups, the majority of people surveyed said they would be willing to pay more for benefits (78 percent of people under 35-years-old, 81 percent of people ages 35-49, 83 percent of people ages 50-64 and 90 percent of people ages 65 and older)
  • Both Democrats and Republicans surveyed said they would be willing to pay more for benefits (74 percent Republican, 88 percent Democrat)
  • Most Americans agreed that the country should gradually raise Social Security taxes in two ways—“a little from all workers, and a little more from top earners.”

Troutman & Troutman, P.C. – Tulsa Social Security disability attorneys


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    - Robert S.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    - Michael M.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
