Could your community members be eligible for up to $40,000 and reinstatement of cut-off benefits?


Find out at a New America Media Briefing and Roundtable with our partners the Senior Citizens Law Center and Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles. Thursday, April 15, 10:45 am- 1pm (Lunch included)

Due to a successful class action lawsuit, the Social Security Administration must now reinstate seniors and people with disabilities - many of then African American, Latino or from other low-income groups - whose Social Security or SSI benefits were stopped.

The government must also pay back $500 million - from $10,000 to $40,000 per person—to over 200,000 people who were unlawfully cut off nationwide.

The public needs to know they can now reapply for their benefits if they were cut off because of an often old or mistaken arrest warrant. Ethnic media can learn who can get benefits—and what they must do.

WHERE: Japanese American Cultural & Community Center
244 South San Pedro Street, Suite 505 (Conference Room A, B & C)
Los Angeles, CA 90012.

RSVP: Dana Levine, dlevine@newamericamedia.org, or 415-503-4170 ext. 116

Made possible with support from the California Community Foundation.
