The Banks Got Bailed Out; Seniors Got Sold Out

First Congress Stole The Social Security Surplus

Super Committee wants to change the way inflation is calculated by adopting the so-called “Chained CPI” to reduce Cost of Living Allowances (COLAs).

For months we at SSI have warned that the congressional “Super Committee” is hiding in the weeds, waiting to cut Social Security benefits for current retirees—not in ten years, not in five years, not in two years—RIGHT NOW! 

Don’t let Congress put seniors in CPI chains.

Fax Members of Congress and tell them NO CHAINED CPI!

Why Support SSI?

The Social Security Institute is a 501(c)(4) non-profit, non-partisan citizens’ lobby.

Contributions to SSI are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes because we lobby for legislation to protect the retirement security of senior citizens and against legislation that would weaken their retirement security.

SSI is conceived in the proposition that seniority matters, not as a matter of right but as a matter of fact and experience.

SSI believes dignity matters, security matters, prosperity matters and freedom matters to people of all ages but especially to senior citizens.

SSI is dedicated to listening to America’s seniors and speaking truth to power in Washington regardless of which political party holds power.

SSI promotes conservative values and classically liberal ideals in its quest to advance the retirement security of today’s seniors and the seniors of tomorrow.

SSI seeks to be a Third Force in American Politics:
• Beyond liberal and conservative;
• Beyond Republican and Democrat;
• Seniors Allied for Action.
