Have breakfast with the Alliance for Retired Americans (UPDATE: 2/18 – event is cancelled due to weather)
This year marks the 80th anniversary of Social Security and the 50th anniversaries of Medicare and Medicaid as well as the decennial White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA). Now is the time for retired and working Americans to join the fight for REAL Retirement Security!
Please join us this Thursday, February 19th at 9 AM at the Raleigh AFL-CIO headquarters for a forum and discussion on what real retirement security means to you and how you can help to make sure the President and the White House protect Social Security and Medicare. Free breakfast will be provided!
What: REAL Retirement Security Now! Forum
Where: AFL-CIO, 1408 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27605
When: Thursday, February 19, 2015 from 9 to 11 AM
Who: North Carolina Alliance for Retired Americans members, officers and staff, and interested community members
At the forum we will discuss how every generation should be able to retire with the confidence that they will keep up the standard of living they worked hard to get over decades. That means:
- Preserving, strengthening and building on Social Security,
- Protecting defined benefit pensions, and
- Strengthening Medicare and Medicaid so that retirees have health care they can afford and access to long-term care if they need it, so they can truly enjoy economic security.
The 2015 White House Conference on Aging has chosen retirement security as one of its key issues and we will be collecting messages, stories and petitions at the meeting to send back to the President and the White House.
Whether or not you are a member of the Alliance for Retired Americans, you know how important Social Security, pensions and Medicare and Medicaid are for REAL retirement security.
Thanks and we hope to see you on Thursday!
