As Congress continues to look at deficit reduction, a major cut called the “chained CPI” is on the table. The chained CPI would cut Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and other vital benefits. Cuts from the chained CPI would add up significantly over time and would disproportionately harm people with disabilities. The Arc recently released a National Policy Matters on the chained CPI. On Wednesday March 27, 2013, from 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. EDT join the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Social Security Task Force for a webinar to learn more about:
- What is the chained CPI?
- How would the chained CPI harm people with disabilities and their families?
- What can you do to help keep the chained CPI from becoming a reality?
