Social Security lifts 1 million elderly Floridians
out of poverty

Social Security reduces elderly poverty dramatically in Florida (and every other state in the nation).

Without Social Security, the poverty rate for Floridians aged 65 and over would exceed 46%. With Social Security, the elderly poverty rate is slightly more than 10%.

Only California had more residents lifted out of poverty by Social Security.
