Beatty Statement on Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month recognizes the important contributions of and raises awareness about issues facing older adults.

May is Older Americans Month, a month-long celebration of senior citizens and an opportunity to discuss the issues important to them and their families. In recognition, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-3) issued the following statement:

"Older Americans are a respected member and play an integral role in every community across our nation," Beatty said. "10,000 Americans turn 65 each day. Now, more than ever, Congress must work together to address the future solvency of Social Security and Medicare, and the ability for every American to achieve a financially secure retirement.” Beatty continued, “I will continue to work tirelessly on these issues and pledge to protect Social Security and Medicare for today’s seniors, their children and generations yet unborn."
