In this polarizing election where specifics have been taking a backseat to soundbites, one issue transcends the partisan divide and unites people of all ages – Social Security. According to a new survey released today by AARP, more than nine in 10 New Hampshire primary voters across party lines and age groups say it is important for presidential candidates to lay out their plans to make Social Security financially sound for future generations.
Social Security needs to be updated for the 21 st century so we can keep the promise for future generations. If our leaders don’t act, future retirees could lose up to $10,000 a year. But there won’t be any progress on updating Social Security without presidential leadership.
Because of New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, Presidential candidates make frequent visits to New Hampshire towns and cities. And when they do—AARP New Hampshire volunteers are right there meeting and greeting candidates and making sure they know how important Social Security is to older adults across the country.
Prospective volunteers attended the launch of AARP New Hampshire’s new civic engagement project aimed at taking advantage of New Hampshire’s unique first-in-the-nation status to engage members of the community in the political process.
