WEDNESDAY: Kuster to Host Seniors Telephone Town Hall

Monday, July 29, 2013 - 11:00am

WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, July 31st at 11:00 am, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) will host a telephone town hall focused on issues and programs that are important to Granite State seniors. During the town hall, Kuster will hear stories from New Hampshire seniors who rely on Medicare and Social Security, answer questions about these programs, and encourage constituents to contact her office for help resolving problems with benefits, enrollment, or other issues. The town hall comes during the week of Medicare’s 48th anniversary. Kuster will be joined on the call by policy experts from AARP.

“As we mark the 48th anniversary of Medicare, I want to hear directly from seniors and middle class families across New Hampshire about what we can do to protect and strengthen the programs our seniors count on,” Kuster said. “I also want to ensure that Granite State families know that my office is here to help resolve problems with their benefits or other issues they’re facing.”

Kuster is deeply committed to protecting and strengthening programs that Granite State seniors count on. In March, she sent President Obama a letter urging him to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security as he works with Congress to address our nation’s fiscal challenges. Kuster is a cosponsor of a House resolution opposing the use of Chained CPI for calculating the cost of living adjustment for Social Security benefits. Earlier this month, she visited the Windham Senior Center to highlight the negative impact sequestration is having on the Meals on Wheels program that helps feed hungry seniors in New Hampshire and across the country.

On Wednesday at 11:00 am, constituents will receive an automated phone call inviting them to stay on the line to join the telephone town hall. Constituents can also register for the telephone town hall here.
