The federal budget battle is heating up—and critical programs that help vulnerable and disadvantaged older Americans are on the chopping block. Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are all possible targets.

Yet more than 13 million older adults are living in or on the edge of poverty, on less than $22,000 each year. These seniors have to decide every day whether to pay for food, medicine, or a place to live. They live one life event away from financial crisis.

How can we make sure vulnerable seniors’ voices are not lost in the budget debate? Join us to learn more about NCOA’s One Away campaign for elder economic security.

Discover:

  • How One Away gives the seniors you serve a chance to tell their own stories of struggle.
  • How you can use One Away messages to influence policymakers in your state and in Washington, DC.
  • Actions you can take on OneAway.org to improve the lives of seniors in need.
