Congressman Matheson knows that today's seniors are part of "the greatest generation' of citizens whose patriotism and hard work built post-war America into a global superpower. He also recognizes that baby boomers are rapidly approaching retirement age, and as tomorrow's seniors, will redefine aging in our country. For both groups, Matheson believes that in today's difficult economy protecting contracts with American seniors like Social Security and Medicare are issues of the highest importance. He is firmly committed to the solvency of these programs, and to ensuring that those who have worked to build our country will be able to retire and receive the benefits they have been promised. The opportunity for seniors to live independently and with dignity is fundamentally important and Congressman Matheson will always support programs that improve health, safety and security for seniors.
Additionally, Congressman Matheson's office can help seniors and their families directly, if they have problems with Social Security, Medicare or other federal agencies. Please call him directly at 801-486-1236 or visit the section on this website called "How Can I Help You?".
