We, the undersigned members of the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO), urge you to correct a coronavirus-related glitch in current law. If left uncorrected, it would result in a sizable benefit cut in Social Security retirement income for individuals born in 1960 and 1961. Please include H.R. 7499, the “Social Security COVID Correction and Equity Act,” in the next coronavirus relief legislation. Although the problem was revealed by the COVID-19-induced economic crisis, it has long-term implications for future generations.
