Newly Released 2009 COLA Forecast Would Keep Five Million Seniors Below Poverty Line
Date:2/14/2008

the cost of Medicare Part B, TSCL is lobbying for a change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) used to determine the COLA. The government currently calculates the COLA based on the CPI for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), a slow-rising index that tracks the spending habits of younger workers who don't spend as much of their income on health expenditures.

However, the government also tracks the spending patterns of older Americans with the CPI for Elderly Consumers, or CPI-E. By tying the annual increase in the COLA to the CPI-E, seniors would see much needed relief in their monthly checks.

For example, a senior who retired with a benefit of $460 in 1984 would have received almost $11,200 more over the past 24 years with the CPI-E.

TSCL supports two similar bills in the current Congress, H.R. 1953 and H.R. 2032, entitled "The Consumer Price Index for Elderly Consumers."

With 1.2 million supporters, The Senior Citizens League (http://www.SeniorsLeague.org) is one of the nation's largest nonpartisan seniors groups. The Senior Citizens League is a proud affiliate of The Retired Enlisted Association.
