You’ve Earned a Say in the Future of Medicare and Social Security

Tell Washington how to strengthen these programs

En Español | You’ve worked for your Medicare and Social Security and you’ve earned the right to know what changes politicians in Washington and on the campaign trail are putting on the table. That’s why AARP is ramping up a national conversation with members and the public about strengthening Social Security and Medicare for future generations.

Throughout Washington’s budget debate over the last year, AARP members and Americans 50-plus urged AARP to prevent cuts in Social Security and Medicare benefits. People recognize that these programs need to be strengthened and are tired of politicians in Washington proposing cuts to Social Security and Medicare to close Washington's budget gap. Those are benefits earned and paid for through long years of work.

Americans want a voice in any discussion about the future of these programs, and they feel like they’ve earned it.

AARP agrees it’s time to bring this debate out from behind the closed doors in Washington and give the people who pay into Medicare and Social Security a voice. Together, we need to start a national discussion on strengthening health and retirement security for hard-working Americans.
