The bill we call the Greatest Generation Benefits Act is vitally important to many older Americans. This legislation would be life-changing for those who need it. Unfortunately, no major action has taken place to make this change a reality. We must work together to tell Congress to pass this bill now! Many older Americans struggle to live on Social Security benefits that do not go far enough. These senior citizens need — and DESERVE — the benefits this bill will provide.

Under The Greatest Generation Benefits Act:

1. Retirees age 82 and older will get a monthly Social Security increase of $85.  This raise will be legally mandated and guaranteed by the United States Congress.

2. These good people who did the MOST for America and who are getting the LEAST during retirement will receive a 4 percent annual benefits increase as soon as this legislation passes.

3. Americans 82 and older will have more money to offset inadequate Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLAs), rising healthcare costs, and to help cover the unforeseen financial troubles that hurt so many retirees.

4. The esteemed senior citizens who sacrificed and made America the proud country it is today will finally get the financial security and retirement protection they deserve.

The people who did the most for our country — America’s greatest generation ⁠— seem to always get the least during their retirement. These are the inspirational Americans who helped make America the great nation it is today. Our elected officials should take better care of them. This is what The Greatest Generation Benefits Act is all about.

Without this important legislation, too many retired Americans will continue receiving unacceptably low Social Security benefits. You can help by telling Congress that it is time to give back.
