President Bush will strengthen and enhance Social Security, guaranteeing no
changes in benefits for current retirees and near-retirees, while giving younger
workers the opportunity to use their Social Security payroll taxes to build a
nest egg for retirement that can be passed on to their families.
President Bush has proposed voluntary personal accounts for younger workers
that would allow them to build a nest egg for retirement that they would own and
control, and could pass on to their families.
President Bush has proposed to expand savings opportunities through the
creation of Retirement Savings Accounts (RSAs) and Lifetime Savings Accounts
(LSAs). RSAs would provide all Americans with an easy, tax-preferred way
to prepare for retirement. LSAs would give all Americans the opportunity
to save tax free to pay for job training, college tuition, the down-payment on a
first home, a car to drive to work, or their retirement.
