The Senior Citizens League will collect both online and print petitions and bring a collective voice to members of Congress urging them to issue a $1,400.00 stimulus check to Social Security recipients.
I (and/or my spouse) want Social Security recipients to receive a $1,400.00 emergency stimulus check to cope during this unprecedented inflationary year. Social Security benefits are one of the few types of income in retirement adjusted for inflation. But soaring inflation has taken a toll on household finances of retired and disabled Social Security recipients. In 2021 Social Security benefits increased by just 1.3 percent raising the average benefit by only about $20 a month. But about 86 percent of Social Security recipients surveyed say their expenses increased by much more than that amount.
As one of the many supporters of TSCL who reside in your constituency, I strongly urge you that NOW is the time that you MUST support an Emergency $1,400.00 Stimulus Check to Social Security Recipients.
Respectfully signed by this concerned citizen:
