Those Who Gave Everything Receive so Little

Right now, the greatest generation – those who gave everything for our country – seem to get the least during their retirement. They survived deep economic troubles and they won World War II. It’s never been more important to pass a bill we call The Greatest Generation Benefits Act.

When passed, this bill gives retired folks age 82 and older a monthly raise of $85 and a 4 percent annual benefits increase… absolutely guaranteed by the Federal government.

The greatest generation built America into the country it is today with their blood, sweat, and tears. There’s no doubt our elected representatives should be taking better care of them.

Without the help of concerned citizens from across the country, The Greatest Generation Benefits Act may never pass… and then retired folks won’t receive an $85 monthly benefits boost and 4 percent raise each year.

We must honor and protect the generation that sacrificed so much. Passing The Greatest Generation Benefits Act is our opportunity to do just that.
