NAM Press Briefing: Social Security Benefits Restored

This online press kit includes material for the New America Media Briefing about the federal-court class action settlement restoring terminated benefits for mostly low-income, ethnic people, whose Social Security and SSI were cut off. Victims of this overturned policy need to know they can reapply, and many may receive thousands of dollars back for wrongly eliminated assistance.


The briefing was held in San Francisco by New America Media, in cooperation with the National Senior Citizens Law Center.
