Gina Raimondo on Social Security
Get most state retirees a cost of living increase
In recent years, we restructured the pension system. We cut $100 million in our health care costs, without cutting eligibility or reducing benefits. Because of that hard work, we are in a position to give back to our working people.
For the first time in five years, most state retirees will get a cost of living increase. We've also expanded the earned income tax credit each of the last two years. We reduced the income tax seniors pay on their social security income.
