Nearly half of Americans rely on Social Security for 50% of their income, and a quarter of Americans over age 65 rely on Social Security for 90% or more of their income. The Strengthening Social Security Act would strengthen and expand this vital lifeline for retirees.

Sign the petition to help us urge Congress to take action to expand Social Security for current and future retirees!

Today’s average monthly Social Security check is $1,461—barely above the federal poverty level of $1,041. Nearly 50% of Americans rely on Social Security for half their income and 25% of Americans over 65 rely on Social Security for 90% of their income.

The Strengthening Social Security Act (H.R. 2654) provides:

• an $800 annual benefit increase

• a lifetime guarantee of full benefits

I call on you as my elected representatives in the United States Congress to immediately pass this legislation and expand Social Security for all current and future beneficiaries.

Sincerely,
Your Constituent
