Graham Working on Social Security Reform Proposal

People who are “56 and younger could wait longer for Social Security eligibility under legislation U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said is being finalized for introduction in coming weeks,” the Greenville News reports.

The proposal would adjust the eligibility age upward by three month increments to age 70 and ask wealthier Americans to take less, the Seneca Republican told Upstate business leaders at Tri-County Technical College Monday.

Graham said he could give up $300 or $400 a month without hampering his quality of life, and the proposal will ask people at upper income levels, who can afford to give up money, to do so in order to create a more sustainable Social Security system.
