Kansas City Pension Protection Committee Urges Investigation

The Kansas City Pension Protection Committee has a campaign for an investigation of the Central States Fund, in cooperation with Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO).  Cleaver sits on the House Committee on Oversight and Investigations.

To facilitate this effort, the Kansas City committee has submitted hundreds of forms to Rep. Cleaver to waive your privacy rights so that Cleaver and his staff will have background information for an investigation.

If you care to join in this investigation effort, the privacy waiver form is available here.

Staff from Rep. Cleaver’s office have said the privacy form must include your social security number and the top sheet of the letter you received from Central States identifying your benefit cut. Part of the form asks for a response for how the cuts will affect you. Do you face loss of car or home? Do you face budgeting a greater portion of your reduced benefits going to major medical expenses? Do you care for grandchildren or other family members? Will you face increases in Medicare premiums?
