Our Social Security Works for America series of reports is written for public officials, members of the press, advocates and other concerned citizens. In addition to providing information about the program’s history, character and vitality, as well as relating compelling, real-life stories, every report includes statistics about the number of people who receive benefits, the types of benefits they receive, and the total amount of funds flowing from these programs into each state, including its congressional districts and counties. Reports are available online for all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Please note that a short fact sheet summarizing the data in this report can be found at the end of the report, directly following the endnotes.
