National AARP President Rob Romasco will be at the World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in downtown Kansas City, Mo., from 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 22 to hear from Kansas City residents about how to keep Social Security strong and effective for future generations.
AARP is urging those who live in the Kansas City metro area to attend this free event and learn about responsible solutions that protect Social Security and that do not cut benefits.
A panel discussion about Social Security And Chained CPI will include Romasco, Kara T. Burgess, elder law and special needs attorney with the Northland Elder Law firm; Daniel Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce; and Randoe Dice, district manager for the Social Security Administration.
Chained CPI is a cost of living formula that could be used for Social Security and affect the benefits of thousands of people. “The chained CPI breaks the promise to seniors who’ve been paying into the program, leaving them with no time to recover the lost income,” said Romasco. “Americans have worked hard to earn these benefits and they deserve a separate, national debate about how to keep Social Security strong.
The meeting is open to the public. To register for the event, visit http://aarp.cvent.com/YEAS_KCMO_August22.
