Alberta is a long-time volunteer with the National Committee who’s helped us wage numerous battles to protect Social Security. She is working to ensure that politicians hear stories like hers before they consider cuts to already modest benefits.

Patricia began volunteering with the National Committee during the Clinton Administration and has seen numerous assaults on benefits over several decades. Like many Americans, she worked two jobs to save enough money in retirement, and today this program serves as a critical lifeline.

It used to be that senior Americans could rely on a “three-legged stool” for retirement security: pensions, personal savings and Social Security. But today most seniors can no longer count on pensions or personal savings in retirement. Social Security is now the primary source of income for many retirees. Yet some lawmakers in Washington want to slash Social Security, raise the retirement age to 70 and reduce the annual Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) to pay for other fiscal priorities. That’s why the National Committee’s fight to protect and strengthen Social Security has taken on an even greater urgency in recent years.

Nettie, Alberta, Patricia and millions of other older Americans are counting on us to fight for them and the benefits they’ve paid into and earned during their lifetime of work. We face huge challenges in the months ahead, so your gift is especially vital.  And if you give right now, your gift will be DOUBLED for twice the impact!
