Chair’s Letter Supporting Social Security 2100 Act
The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) is a coalition of 69 national nonprofit organizations concerned with the well-being of America’s older population. Over the years we have worked tirelessly to protect and expand Social Security because it provides the foundation for income security of the people of this country. LCAO is writing to commend you for your work in support of America’s seniors and to endorse your bill, Social Security 2100: A Sacred Trust. This legislation would improve Social Security benefits and extend the solvency of the Social Security Trust Funds while not increasing taxes for those earning under $400,000.

Letter of Support for Paid Leave Principles
The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) is a coalition of 69 national nonprofit organizations concerned with the well-being of America’s older population and committed to representing their interests in the policy-making arena. An important part of the LCAO’s mission includes advancing the recognition of the immeasurable contribution that America’s family caregivers make to enabling older adults to live meaningful lives in their homes and communities. It is time that, as a country, we acknowledge—and support—the invaluable contribution of America’s family caregivers by enacting a comprehensive paid leave policy, and we urge the 117th Congress and the Biden Administration to promote a family and medical paid leave policy that includes family caregivers.
