Council of Seniors Wants Stronger Benefits for You

Inflationary times highlight the need for extra income. Here at Council of Seniors, we’re working hard to get Congress to pass The SAVE Benefits Act. Small or no Social Security cost of living adjustments (COLAs) over a series of years makes this bill a must. We are trying to get the shortfall of $581 in recent years rightfully returned to seniors.
