It’s Vacation Time!

We are taking a break this summer so we can return in September at FULL STEAM. But before we go, we have some good news to share ….

Connect with us



Our WEP committee teamed up with a group in the U.S. which has been working to get HR.82 - Social Security Fairness Act of 2021 passed. The team called members of Congress, urging them to sign on as co-sponsors on HR.82 — and it worked! HR.82 now has 292 co-sponsors, and on July 15th, a motion to place the bill on the Consensus Calendar was filed. We will continue to update you on next steps.

Announcing our new Medicare FAQs page!

Special thanks go out to Diane Daniel and Toni Kamins for researching and writing our new FAQs page for our Seniors Caucus website, and to the WEP committee for their hard work on this issue. Take a look and let us know if you have any questions.


Our monthly coffee chats will continue through the summer via Zoom on the following dates: 29 July and 26 August

from 9am - 12pm Eastern Time (US & Canada). RSVP to get your local time and add to your calendar.






Here are a few tunes to get you in the summertime vacation mood. Stay cool, and have a great summer!
