AARP Illinois will use several events this summer, including the state fair, the Black Family Reunion Celebration and the Senior Lifestyle Expo, to record members and the general public discussing their experiences with Social Security and Medicare.

AARP will photograph and record videos of people telling their individual stories of Social Security and Medicare so they can be shared with their representatives in Congress.

“Social Security is a self-financed program, not a piggy bank for deficit reduction,” said Ryan Gruenenfelder, AARP Illinois outreach director. “That’s why we’re calling for a debate about responsible solutions that will keep the promise to seniors and their kids and grandkids.”
