Testimony: Income Security and the Elderly: Securing Gains Made in the War on Poverty

On March 5, 2014, Kaiser Family Foundation Senior Vice President Tricia Neuman testified before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging as part of its hearing entitled Income Security and the Elderly: Securing Gains Made in the War on Poverty.   As part of her testimony, she presented segments from a Foundation-produced video that highlights what it means to be old and poor in our country.  The video, Old and Poor: America’s Forgotten, serves as a companion to a report released by the Foundation last year and illuminates the daily challenges facing seniors who live in poverty and struggle to make ends meet.
