Retirees on Social Security Beginning to Struggle

New survey shows how retirees are trying to cope

Navigating retirement is becoming increasingly challenging in today’s uncertain economic climate, according to a recent survey from The Senior Citizens League, a nonpartisan senior group.


The survey was conducted online among 3,056 participants, 96% of whom receive Social Security as a source of income.


Half of the respondents have spent emergency savings in the past year due to high inflation, the survey found. This compares to just over a third (36%) who tapped into emergency savings last year.


One in five have applied for Medicare Savings Program or Medicare Extra help, twice the rate of last year.


43% have carried debt on a consumer credit card for more than 90 days.


Social Security beneficiaries saw the biggest boost to their benefits in about 40 years in 2022, with a 5.9% cost-of-living adjustment.


The Senior Citizens League has estimated next year’s COLA could be 8.6%, based on the latest Consumer Price Index data.
