AARP Change On Social Security Reform Shocks Many

In a dramatic change that could affect Social Security reform and anyone who receives various Social Security benefits, the American Association of Retired Persons (now known as “AARP”) altered its position on changes to benefits. The AARP is one of the most important lobbying groups in Washington, D.C. Legal advice concerning how changes to Social Security law will impact benefits is available from a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer.

AARP leaders said that, despite knowing that it will upset many of the group’s members, AARP is prepared to accept cuts to Social Security benefits. This is in stark contrast to AARP’s stance in the past. The organization had worked vigorously to oppose even the slightest suggested cuts to Social Security benefits. The enormous financial difficulties facing the Social Security system prompted the change.

AARP’s leaders said that they would accept slight, gradual changes. The changes would have to come with a “great deal of lead time,” according to its legislative policy director. In this way, cuts to Social Security benefits would not impact people who are currently retired or who are close to retirement.

The change in strategy signals the tough times ahead for Social Security. It also signals the uncertainty of the types and amount of benefits that will be available to future Social Security beneficiaries, whether they receive retirement or disability benefits. Applicants for Social Security Disability benefits may wish to speak to a Tulsa Social Security Disability attorney about forthcoming changes.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
