Wake Up, Washington!
Retirement USA is spearheading "Wake Up, Washington!" Month from September 15 - October 15, 2010. This month-long speak out event will be a time for Americans all across the country to tell Washington to keep their hands off Social Security and fix the nation's patchwork retirement income system.
We encourage all of our members to participate in this program and speak out for a secure retirement!
Here are some ways YOU can participate:
Make your voice heard!
- Submit a story to the online story bank that collects personal stories from those who are concerned about their retirement prospects and those who feel secure about their retirement because they have a guaranteed pension. We feel it is important to highlight any concerns you may have about the security of your earned healthcare benefits and how reductions or cancelations may impact your retirement income. The stories will be posted on the Retirement USA website and used in communications with Congress to show the depth of the crisis.
- Use Facebook and Twitter posts to highlight the facts about the retirement income crisis. (If you are a Facebook user, find ProtectSeniors.Org on Facebook and "like" us to get the most up-to-date information on our efforts.)
Stories can also be sent to the Retirement USA Story Bank at the following address:
