Urge your Senators to Cosponsor the bipartisan SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act
Senators Wyden (D-OR), Brown (D-OH), and Cassidy (R-LA) reintroduced the bipartisan SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act. In the House, Representatives Higgens (D-NY) and Fitzpatrick (R-PA) introduced a companion bill (S. 2767/ H.R. 5408). This bill would update SSI asset limits for the first time since 1980. The current limit for those who receive SSI is $2,000 in assets with a married couple’s limit being $3,000. The Savings Penalty Elimination Act would raise those caps to $10,000 for individuals and $20,000 for married couples, and index them to inflation moving forward. The Autism Society sent a letter of support to the lead members of Congress.  The Autism Society and over 300 groups signed a letter supporting and urging the passage of this important bill. 

Please use the Action Alert to urge your Members of Congress to support this legislation.
