Jack Markell on Social Security

Delaware Democratic Governor

Golden Years Guarantee: live at home; financial security

I believe strongly that senior citizens’ golden years should be the best years of their lives, and should not be ruined by having to decide whether to buy food or medicine or worrying about their retirement savings. That’s why I have proposed this Golden Years Guarantee, a three-part plan to provide senior citizens will receive the quality medical care they need, ensure they will be able to live in their homes as long as they want and to encourage seniors to continue making valuable contributions to our society.

As Treasurer, I have started programs to help aging Delawareans. My AARP-endorsed Consumer Tool Chest was created to equip senior citizens with financial security tools, and my “Go Direct!” campaign encourages seniors to protect themselves fro financial crimes by direct-depositing their social security checks.

As Governor, I promise to take every step necessary to improve the health, safety and financial stability of Delaware’s senior citizens, our state’s fastest growing population.
