New York Seniors Unsure about Medicare, Social Security

September 28, 2012

Watertown, N.Y. – A recent poll conducted by the elderly advocacy group AARP revealed that more than half of people over 50 years old living in the northern part of the State of New York are uncertain about the future of Medicare and Social Security.

The respondents of the said poll were residents of the 21st Congressional District of New York.

According to the results of the poll, around 53 percent of 50-plus-year-old seniors were not confident that Social Security will be around for them and for the next generations. About 33 percent said that they’re fairly confident, but only 10 percent believe that Social Security will still be around.

Meanwhile, a similar trend was seen on the side of Medicare, the health care program for seniors. Close to 50 percent of the respondents said they’re either not confident at all or not very confident of the future of Medicare.

The two programs are said to be the most important safety nets for the elderly.
