EPI's major follow-up study to its 2002 report "Retirement Insecurity," this new book argues that a truly accurate assessment of Americans' retirement adequacy must consider all forms of wealth, including private pensions, housing, and financial assets in addition to Social Security, and how they have changed over time for different groups. This latest study finds that Social Security is more necessary than ever--not only is the program nearly universal, but its value has risen faster than other forms of retirement savings for households that need additional retirement benefits the most.
