Under current Social Security rules, when a spouse who has little or no work history files for Social Security benefits at retirement, they can receive 50 percent of their working spouse's benefit. This has been the rule for decades, and the majority of stay-at-home women receive Social Security through this calculation based on their husband's work.
Mia Love has publicly indicated her support for the privatization of Social Security. In all the political advertising that is being broadcast, I have never seen any explanation from her about what happens to the Social Security benefits for stay-at-home women.
If Love wants the votes of women and mothers, then she needs to explain how her policy affects them.
