Retired Americans Meet to Discuss Future of Social Security

BAY COUNTY, Fla. - The Florida Alliance of Retired Americans celebrates the 82nd birthday of social security but it wasn't just a celebration. Monday afternoon's meeting was a call to action. 

At the Bay County Library today, retired Americans discussed the future of social security and how they plan to lobby officials like congressman Neal Dunn to sign the social security expansion bill. They say social security needs to be protected so retired Americans can comfortably live after leaving the work force. Bill S.4.27 is sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders. If passed, it will enhance social security as well as ensure the longevity of the program.  

"The bill that's pending in congress now will extend it almost until the end of 2099 and will provide income to retired Americans of $800 more than we're getting now" said Area Vice President of the Alliance For Retired Americans, David Jacobsen.

The Florida alliance for retired Americans plans to reach out to Congressman Dunn and other government officials in the Panhandle to see that this bill passes.
