2016 WIARA Retirement Security Forums

Over the coming months leading up to the election, the Alliance in coalition with many groups will be presenting information about Retirement Security. Medicare, Social Security, the Wisconsin Retirement System, Private Sector Pensions and Retirement Savings Accounts are sure to be at the forefront of political attacks over the coming years. It is imperative that we become educated and organize to protect our collective interests.

We will be working with the WI State AFL-CIO, area labor councils, the Wisconsin Coalition for Retirement Security, and Protect Our Wisconsin Retirement Security to educate and mobilize retirees across the state to protect and expand the ability to retire with dignity.

Please see our schedule and let your friends and neighbors know about our upcoming events. More dates and locations will be added to the list below. If you would like a forum in your area, please reach out to our Executive Director, Greg Neil at 608-556-9521 or

  1. I am planning to attend this presentation. I received a lengthy reply from Jim Sensenbrenner to an email i sent him regarding legislation to protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. I would like to know a FACTUAL response to some of his contention that these programs, along with other entitlements–I HATE that word–make up 60% of the federal budget?! I don’t believe that but don’t know how to refute it. There? are also a lot of other things in that letter that I would like to have someone look at. Could I send a copy of that letter to you so we would know how to respond intelligently?
