Dear Friend,

We could be just hours away from a vote that would cut your Social Security benefits.

Friend, your senators need to hear from you NOW, before it's too late.

Send a letter to and today, and tell them to vote NO on chained CPI!

We could be just hours away from a Senate vote to cut your Social Security benefits by thousands of dollars.

That's right, Friend – your senators could vote to cut your cost of living adjustment by adopting a so-called "chained CPI" as early as this week. AARP is standing firmly on the side of your benefits – and against chained CPI – but we need you to stand with us.

Tell your senators to vote NO on chained CPI and protect your hard-earned benefits – if they don't hear from you soon, it might be too late.

It's crunch time. The Senate is debating how to stop the automatic budget cuts scheduled to take effect on Friday – and some have proposed a chained CPI amendment that would slash Social Security by $112 billion over the next ten years as part of a deal.

This $112 billion Social Security cut, in the form of a reduced cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) every year, would cost the average senior over $2,000 in the first 10 years alone. What's worse, the cut would increase with each passing year. That means every year, it will get harder and harder for millions already struggling to pay for groceries, health care or heating bills.

With a vote possible this week, your senators need to hear from you that this backdoor benefit cut is absolutely unacceptable.

Friend, you need to tell and TODAY that voting for chained CPI is a cut to your benefits – and you won't stand for it.

A vote could happen soon, and your voice couldn't be more critical. Speak up now and stop cuts to your hard-earned benefits!
