Tell Congress – Say no to unfair Social Security cuts!

Congress has big budget decisions to make in the weeks to come – and harmful cuts to Social Security are still on the table.

One proposal, chained CPI, would change the cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) for Social Security benefits and cut your benefits by over $2,000 over the next 10 years alone.

Congress needs to find responsible ways to address our nation's budget challenges – without hurting the millions of older Americans who are counting on their benefits each month.

Send a letter to your members of Congress today and tell them: No unfair cuts to Social Security.
