Honolulu, Oct 14 - Congresswoman Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) today announced House Democrats will move ahead with legislation to provide Social Security recipients with a one-time $250 payment in 2011. The Social Security Administration is expected to announce Friday there will be no automatic Cost-of-Living-Adjustment for 2011.
H.R. 5987, the Seniors Protection Act of 2010, is expected to be brought to the House floor for a vote when Congress reconvenes in November.
"There are more than 160,000 seniors in the State of Hawaii who receive Social Security benefits. As a cosponsor of this measure, I strongly support Congress' efforts to enact this one-time $250 payment to seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities to help them make ends meet," said Congresswoman Hirono.
