Social Security is the cornerstone of retirement income for U.S. workers. It is a federal program that provides financial support to eligible individuals and their families, such as retirement income, survivorship benefits, and disability payments. It provides retirees with guaranteed, inflation-indexed income for life.

Most of Transamerica Institute's and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies' research and survey reports examine people’s expected reliance on Social Security in retirement, their level of understanding about their benefits, and their concerns about the program's future. 

Most of our organizations publications reference Social Security. This listing has been curated to share the most notable publications.
