SUPPORT THE SENIORS AND VETERANS EMERGENCY BENEFITS ACT (SAVE Benefits Act)

Next year, for just the third time since 1975, seniors who receive Social Security won’t be getting an annual cost of living increase. Neither will millions of other Americans whose veterans’ benefits, disability benefits, and other monthly payments are pegged to Social Security.

That's why I'm introducing the Seniors and Veterans Emergency Benefits Act (SAVE Benefits Act) with Ed Markey, Barbara Mikulski, Patty Murray, Chuck Schumer, Bill Nelson, Debbie Stabenow, Bernie Sanders, Sherrod Brown, Bob Casey, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jeff Merkley, Kirsten Gillibrand, Al Franken, Dick Blumenthal, Chris Murphy, Mazie Hirono, and Tammy Baldwin. The SAVE Benefits Act would:

  • Provide seniors & veterans an emergency 3.9% payment in 2016 (approx. $581)
  • Fully cover the cost of increased payments by closing corporate compensation loopholes
  • Extend the life of Social Security

Help us show Congress that America’s seniors and veterans need a boost on January 1st.
