Next week the White House will host an important event – the White House Conference on Aging. This once-a-decade conference will address the state of aging in the nation – and ways to improve the quality of life for all older Americans. Of particular importance to us at the Pension Rights Center will be what conference attendees have to say about ways to strengthen retirement security for older Americans.
We’ve submitted comments on the WHCOA issue brief on retirement security. Check them out here. And this week we, along with partner organizations, delivered more than 226,000 petition signatures urging the WHCOA to include Social Security expansion in the conference.
Karen Friedman, PRC’s Executive Vice President and Policy Director, will attend the White House Conference on Aging in person. You can join in, too.
