The looming Social Security crisis affects all Americans. So we need a solution that helps all Americans. As part of the long-term plan to fix Social Security, Generations Together supports the introduction of voluntary personal retirement accounts, which can help younger workers build retirement "nest eggs," while ensuring that Social Security does not change for seniors and those nearing retirement. By coming together on this issue, we can provide a secure retirement for all generations. Click here to help fix Social Security with Generations Together.
Generations Together is a project of the Coalition for the Modernization and Protection of America’s Social Security (CoMPASS), a 501(c)(4) non-partisan education project initiated in 2002. The mission of CoMPASS is to educate the public on, and advocate for, fundamental Social Security reform.
CoMPASS advocates for Social Security reform that meets four key criteria:
- Protects benefits for seniors and those nearing retirement;
- Creates new voluntary personal retirement accounts for younger workers;
- Puts the program on a path to long-term solvency; and
- Ensures that taxes are not increased on employers or employees.
CoMPASS is funded by industry associations and seniors coalitions, and brings together Americans from every generation who support Social Security reform, ranging from seniors, to working parents, to younger workers.
Generations Together has been, and will continue to be, active throughout the course of the national debate on Social Security reform. Its activities include voter education, outreach to the news media, paid advertisements at the national and local levels, local outreach to Members of Congress, and mobilizing supporters to attend town hall meetings and other local events.
