The Senior Citizens League, Inc., 1800 Diagonal Road, Suite 600, Alexandria, VA 22314. Phone: (800) 333-8725, Fax: (703) 997-5669, Website:

The Senior Citizens League is recognized as a tax exempt organization under I.R.C. section  501(c)(4) by the Internal Revenue Service. Our mission is to educate and alert our members, our supporters, and other senior citizens about their rights as U.S. citizens, focusing on protecting and defending the retirement and health benefits that senior citizens have earned and paid for. We conduct a variety of campaigns including the adoption of fair Cost-of-Living-Adjustments (COLAs), and defense against benefit cuts or means-testing of hard-earned benefits. We support full prescription drug coverage by Medicare, Notch reform and Social Security Trust Fund reform. For more details of our legislative positions see our legislative agenda.

The Senior Citizens League strives to provide our members and supporters with the best possible service in order to maintain your trust in us. Therefore, we pledge to be responsible in our management and cost-effective in our fundraising. We follow accounting procedures established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), are independently audited annually, make our audited financial statement available upon request, and have an Independent Board of Trustees that has control of our funds and the freedom to allocate them in a manner which will carry out the mission of The Senior Citizens League. We support and comply with The Data & Marketing Association's Privacy Promise to consumers. We occasionally rent and/or exchange lists with other nonprofits to increase our income for programs. If you do not wish to participate in this program simply let us know.

Contributions or gifts to The Senior Citizens League are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. Because we lobby Congress on behalf of retiree and senior citizen rights, the IRS does not allow you to deduct your contributions on your taxes.

Please do not send us a contribution if it causes financial hardship.

If you choose to use a credit card online, the information will be processed on a secure computer. You are fully protected against credit card fraud.

YOUR SENIOR CITIZENS LEAGUE GUARANTEE!!! Our Board of Trustees and Volunteers have proudly pledged to serve and work for the interests of retirees. If at any time, for any reason, you are less than fully satisfied with our work you may obtain a complete and immediate refund of your most recent contribution. Just send us a brief note, including your full address, and we will promptly refund your contribution.

Contributions from supporters and friends help us lobby to protect your Social Security and Medicare benefits. The annual voluntary dues paid by members do not cover the full cost of the work we do to fight against Social Security and Medicare cuts or reductions in service. Nor do they cover our massive campaign for Notch reform or for a fair annual Social Security COLA that reflects the TRUE annual cost-of-living increases for seniors. We therefore count on contributions from friends like you to conduct this vital work. If you're unable to afford a membership-level contribution, please become a grassroots supporter by signing one of our Online Petitions or sending a letter to your elected officials using our Guide to Contacting Congress.

TSCL Board of Trustees:

Edward Cates, Chairman

John Adams, Vice Chairman

Daisy Brown, Legislative Liaison

O. Marie Smith, Secretary

Kyle Carpenter, Treasurer

Unwanted e-mail and your privacy

The Senior Citizens League supports your right to avoid unwanted e-mail or "spam". As part of our effort to inform supporters about legislation that affects them, we will occasionally e-mail correspondence to registered users of the league's site who have given us their e-mail address. These will typically be informational alerts on current legislation or our lobbying activities. In addition, registered users can choose to have the Social Security and Medicare Advisor e-mailed to them 10 times a year. At any time you may e-mail us and request that either of these services be discontinued.

The Senior Citizens League may invite other carefully screened organizations and firms to contact the League's supporters via e-mail regarding topics the League believes will be of interest and value. At any time, registered users of this site may request that we discontinue this service by e-mailing us.
