More than 60 million people in the U.S. receive Social Security benefits. These payments play a key role in helping millions of Americans stay above the poverty line.

Social Security lifted more than 22 million people in the U.S. out of poverty in 2015, according to a report released this week by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
