Abstract

The Hispanic population of the US is growing rapidly, and by 2040, all but the oldest ages in many states will be majority Hispanic. Ron Angel writes that this ageing Hispanic population poses many challenges for social security in the US, with this group far more likely to lack a retirement plan or savings. He argues that the moves to privatize social security and the increasing restrictions on the availability of Medicaid put many Hispanics at risk of poverty and poor health in their retirement.
