Jobs with Justice Alert–Fully Fund the Social Security Administration. Call today!

The Senate Appropriations Committee proposed cuts to the Social Security Administration (SSA) budget of $492 million from the FY 2017 spending levels. This is not fair to the SSA workers, but it is also a broken promise to the public who spend viable work years investing in Social Security. 

These cuts will do irreparable harm to SSA workers and every citizen who relies on Social Security for retirement, survivor or disability benefits now or in the future. Furloughs of 20 days or more may be inevitable. More offices will close, lines will be longer,and wait times on the 800-number will grow to hours. Backlogs will grow and office hours could be reduced again.

Call your Congressional representative and U.S. Senators (Capitol Hill Switchboard is 202-224-3121; give your zip code and you will be connected to the office of your representatives andsenators).

Tell them to:
1. Pass a fully funded budget, not just a continuing resolution.
2. Fully fund the Social Security Administration–NO CUTS
