Family Caregiving
Wisconsin’s 580,000 Caregivers need support providing care and keeping up with out-of-pocket costs.

  • ASK: Congressman/woman _______, Have you ever been a caregiver for a loved one?
  • Will you join the bipartisan Assisting Caregivers Today (ACT) Caucus to support solutions to support caregivers?

Prescription Drugs
The costs of prescription drugs can be a lot and even break the budgets of aging & retired Wisconsinites.

  • ASK: Congressman/woman _______, Are you cosponsoring any specific bills on prescription drugs?

Social Security Administration (SSA) Funding
Social Security is a benefit for all seniors who have worked to earn and when they currently call for assistance, they are met with long waiting processes.

Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
The EITC is a great tax advantage for working Wisconsinites rewarding work.

  • ASK: Congressman/woman _______, Are you willing to support eliminating the discriminatory age cap of 65 so older Wisconsinites that may still be working can benefit from this tax cut?
