You’ve Earned a Say

Online Chat: The Future of Medicare and Social Security

Missed the July 27 conversation? Read the transcript

AARP creates voters’ guides so you can find out what the candidates are saying, in their own words, on important issues such as Social Security, Medicare and financial security. The Presidential Voters’ Guide will be available in AARP The Magazine from late August through November.

The voters’ guides for other federal candidates will be online in the fall on earnedasay.org.

Comment From Jerrold: Will we be able to download this conversation at the end of the discussion?

David Certner, AARP:  Thanks, Jerrold. The transcript will be available in a couple of days.

Comment From Marvin Sands: We've talked a lot here lately about "You've Earned A Say." Now, how are we going to get this message to our members of Congress and let them know how we feel about strengthening these two programs for future generations?

David Certner, AARP:  Great question, Marvin.

If you haven’t done so yet, I encourage you to take our questionnaire at earnedasay.org and express your opinion on the future of these vital programs.

On earnedasay.org, you will also find tools that will allow you to choose which options you’d choose to strengthen Social Security & Medicare and then share your choices with your members of Congress and the presidential candidates.

I see we are coming to the end of our time, and I want to thank everyone for the great questions.

AARP:  We've reached the end of our hour. Thank you, David, for being with us again today! And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to submit a question or participate in today's chat!

AARP will keep working to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security for today's seniors and generations to come. Remember, go to earnedasay.org to make your voice heard. Together, we can take the debate out from behind closed doors in Washington.

Thank you again. Bye, everyone!

Also of interest: Will Part B rates rise to $247 a month by 2014?
