For American seniors, Social Security is an important source of income and retirement security. But policy decisions on Social Security in Washington can have a tremendous impact on your financial well-being. Fortunately, you have the ability to make your voice heard and express your opinion on Social Security policy.
The Seniors Center has put together four simple ways you can take action, all from the convenience of your phone.
- Save Social Security Petition to President Joseph R. Biden – This petition calls on the President to issue Executive Orders that would ensure that Social Security taxes are deposited into the Social Security Trust Fund and used only for benefits.
- Trust Fund Emergency Petition to Congress – This petition calls on legislators to enact bills that would guarantee the Social Security Trust Fund will not be raided or used to fund unrelated government programs.
- Protect the Social Security Trust Fund Petition – This petition calls on Congress to protect the Social Security Trust Fund by passing legislation that would ensure the funds are no longer subject to raids for other government projects.
- Contact your legislators – Directly contacting your legislators is one of the most effective ways to make your voice heard. Find out who represents you in Congress and contact their offices by email to express your opinion on Social Security policy.
By taking action, you can be sure your voice is heard in Washington and that the decisions about Social Security are made in the best interest of seniors. Make sure your voice is heard today!
