Older Americans

Rep. Levin is a champion for the benefits and programs that older Americans rely on, and he strongly opposes any effort to undermine Social Security or Medicare. 

Rep. Levin helped introduce the Social Security 2100 Act, a bill that increases Social Security’s vital benefits while making the system financially strong throughout the 21st century. He also cosponsored the Social Security Fairness Act to repeal provisions of law that unfairly reduce or eliminate Social Security benefits for some Americans who devoted their careers to public service. Rep. Levin will continue to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to strengthen, protect, and expand Social Security benefits that older Americans depend on.

He is also a strong proponent of Medicare, and will always work to strengthen the program and ensure that older Americans receive the highest quality health care. Rep. Levin spoke out against the President’s proposal to cut Medicare funding, and will continue to defend the program from cuts. 

Rep. Levin was also proud to support the Supporting Older Americans Act of 2020. This bill reauthorizes the Older Americans Act and provides robust investments in critical programs such as Meals on Wheels. Rep. Levin is committed to ensuring our older Americans can age with dignity. Constituents are encouraged to contact Rep. Levin’s office for assistance with Social Security and Medicare benefits, or any other issues seniors may be having with a federal agency. While our office cannot guarantee favorable outcomes, many of the constituents who have contacted our office have received previously-denied benefits.
