Pass the SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act

97 so far! Help us get to 100 signers!

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, which has remained unchanged for nearly four decades, is in dire need of reform. The SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act, a bipartisan effort, seeks to raise the asset limits from $2,000 to $10,000 for individuals, and from $3,000 to $20,000 for couples. This proposed change would enable those dependent on SSI benefits to save for emergencies and future needs without jeopardizing their benefits. This reform has garnered the support of over 300 organizations, including AARP, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It is vital to foster economic opportunity and mobility for people with disabilities. This reform goes beyond just updating figures; it's about guaranteeing dignity and financial security for those who need it most. Please cast your vote in favor of H.R.5408 and S.2767 and expedite these bills through the committee process.
