Congress--fund Social Security now please!!!

270 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

Social Security is the nation’s cornerstone economic security program – protection that Americans earn through a lifetime of hard work. Social Security supports Americans who are retired, have experienced a career-ending illness or injury, or have lost a parent or spouse. It is important to families in every single Congressional district across the United States and has been a bedrock of financial security during the unprecedented crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic. Social Security’s trust funds currently have approximately $2.9 trillion in reserves. Yet, the funding provided by Congress for SSA’s operating expenses has not kept pace with the need for SSA services: as baby boomers have aged more people have been applying for and receiving the benefits they have earned. At the same time, as a result of inadequate budgets SSA’s staffing has been cut, leading to lengthy wait times for service including at SSA field offices, call centers, and disability hearing offices. Insufficient resources have also challenged SSA’s ability to serve the public during the COVID-19 crisis, leading to new service delays. Importantly, Social Security is the face of the government for many Americans. It's time to provide SSA with the resources it requires to provide service commensurate with the strength and importance of the program. Thanks.
