Seniors need to watch out for scare tactics

-A A +A

An organization located in Washington, D.C., named the Senior Citizens League, but not connected to the federal government, has sent out something called the “Notch Register Record.” The record promises to partition Congress to authorize a bill to make a settlement of $5,000 to senior citizens born between 1917 and 1926.
This organization has been active for several years, but principally it wants each senior citizen to donate $10 or more to it. This is just another scare mailing to solicit money and is considered a scam.
There is no action pending in Congress to make any adjustments to Social Security monthly payments. A cost-of-living adjustment was announced several months ago, and went into effect the first of January.
Although it was only for .015 percent, considering the situation of the country, that was the maximum paid. In previous years, it has depended on the payments set by the Social Security program that is responsible for the amount available.
In summary, the Senior Citizens League has no authority to set the amount of Social Security payments to senior citizens and is only a scam for it to raise money.
In the year 2008, more than 900,000 elderly citizens paid money primarily because of a notch scare newsletter to the Senior Citizens League. There are no benefits connected with its promise.
Please do not believe this promise, and if you have access to a computer, check it out at http://sunshine-for-seniors.blogspot.com/2010/07/senior-citizens-league....
