AARP Iowa relies on its Grass Roots Election and Advocacy Team (GREAT) volunteers to be the boots on the ground across the state, telling lawmakers about legislation and policy concerns.
More than 500 Iowans from across the state participated in our recent series of voter engagement Social Security solutions forums to discuss the importance of Social Security in the 2016 election and to the economic security of Iowans for generations to come.
Politicians are not likely to make plans to update Social Security unless voters ask them to do so.

As the 2016 general election moves into high gear, AARP is mobilizing members and voters in Iowa and across the country to demand that all candidates have a plan to update Social Security for current and future citizens. Without updates for future sustainability, the benefits Social Security provides will drastically decrease for recipients by 2034, potentially by as much as $10,000 a year.
