The Treatment of the Family and Divorce in the Social Security Program

Testimony Program before the Senate Special Committee on Aging
February 22, 1999

Abstract

Despite the vital importance for almost all families and the hundreds of billions of dollars in annual spending involved, family issues for the most part have remained on the sidelines in the Social Security debate. These family issues derive from the adjustments that Social Security makes to benefits in cases where there are spouses, survivors, and divorced former partners of workers.
