Dear [Decision Maker],

I write today to urge you to cosponsor the Bipartisan SSI Savings Elimination Act (S.2767/H.R.5408) which raises SSI (Supplemental Security Income) asset limit from $2,000 to $10,000 for individuals and $3,000 to $20,000 for married couples. The bill will also index the limits with inflation. The limit, which was established in 1974, has not been raised since 1989. The lack of change within the program shows the need for new updates.

This piece of legislation will prevent those in the hydrocephalus community, who rely on SSI, from having to choose between accepting a better job or losing their safety net. The change is a common sense solution that will help many individuals across the country. Please cosponsor this legislation and help update these outdated limits within the SSI program.
