Help Gain Support for the SSI Restoration Act
On January 31st, Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), and Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) reintroduced the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Restoration Act. The bill modernizes and improves SSI by streamlining the claiming process, increasing asset limits, setting the minimum benefit at 100 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, and eliminating punitive reductions in benefits.

Currently, over 69 million people receive benefits from Social Security, SSI, or both, including nearly 14 million people with disabilities and their spouses and children. Together these programs provide insurance and income that improves the lives of nearly all people in the United States sometime in their lives. However, many parts of the Social Security and SSI disability systems need to be strengthened to better meet the needs of people with disabilities. This bill would do just that by comprehensively reforming SSI. Please use this action alert to urge your Representatives to support this bill.
