Social Security 2100 Act: Sample message to Senator

Thank you for sending a message to your U.S. Senator — it really will make a difference! Here’s how to find your senator’s contact information, and some sample text is below. And thank you again for taking action.

SAMPLE TEXT — PLEASE EDIT, A UNIQUE MESSAGE HAS MORE IMPACT!

Dear Senator:

I urge you to sign on to the Social Security 2100 Act (S.269). Social Security is more than a safety net. It improves economic security, stability and growth for me and all of your constituents.

62 million Americans, or about 1 in every 6 residents collect Social Security, funding over 9 million jobs and $1.4 trillion in economic activity every year. For two-thirds of retirees in our country, Social Security represents over half of their overall income.

Half of Americans not yet retired have yet to put away more than $10,000 towards their future retirement. If nothing is done now to fix Social Security, millions will be impacted — including me and my family. Cutting benefits is not the answer. We need to expand and improve Social Security.

I urge you to sign on in support of S.269, the Social Security 2100 Act. This is not just important to me now, but to ensure my children and grandchildren will have Social Security when they need it.

Sincerely,

NAME:
