Lincoln to Host Pair of Social Security Forums in Region 8

JULY 28, 2005 - Posted at 3:20 p.m. CDT

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln will host a series of regional forums around the state next week "to highlight the economic impact of the Social Security program on the state and to mark the 70th anniversary" of the program.

On August 1, Lincoln will join West Memphis area residents in a discussion of the value of Social Security dollars to Crittenden County, which saw more than $71 million in Social Security benefits in 2003.  The session begins at 9 a.m. at the Schoettle Medical Education Center at 200 West Tyler Street.

At 11 a.m., Lincoln will be joined by Congressman Vic Snyder in co-hosting a community forum in Searcy, to discuss similar issues regarding Social Security.  The forum will take place at the White County Aging Center at 2200 East Moore Street.

Additional forums are planned later in the day in Van Buren and El Dorado.

Arkansas ranks third in the nation in the percentage of its population receiving Social Security benefits.
