Abstract: 
Social Security is a major retirement income source for older persons in the United States and other developed countries. Without Social Security income, a large portion of the older population would live in poverty in all developed countries. This report analyzes how or to what extent Social Security keeps older persons out of poverty across developed countries by examining changes in poverty rates of older persons with and without Social Security income.
