MOAA Council and Chapter Presidents from all 50 states, together with members of the national Board of Directors and headquarters staff, plus members of MOAA’s active duty, Guard, Reserve, spouse and auxiliary advisory committees will "storm" Capitol Hill on April 9, and visit nearly all 535 representatives and senators in support of key legislative priorities.
This year, the "Hill-stormers" will meet with their legislators, discuss the issues, provide fact sheets and brochures, and ask them to:
  • Sustain military pay and benefits and avoid repeating past mistakes that destabilized the all-volunteer force;
  • Reject disproportional TRICARE fee increases which shift costs onto beneficiaries while reducing access;
  • Eliminate catastrophic sequestration cuts which threaten national security;
  • And address remaining inequities for disabled retirees, survivors, and guard and reserve personnel.
Learn more about this year's Storming the Hill event, and help our efforts by sending your legislators aMOAA-suggested message on these critical issues.
Congress only has one week to avert a 24 percent cut in Medicare/TRICARE payments to physicians. Send your legislators a message today asking that they avoid cuts that would devastate access to healthcare for military beneficiaries.
The Consumer Price Index continued to climb in February. For the first time in FY 2014 the COLA now stands above the FY 2013 baseline. Follow the trends for yourself on MOAA’s COLA Watch webpage.
Veterans with a 100 percent permanent and total (P&T) VA disability rating can now receive expedited processing of Social Security disability benefit applications. A 100 percent P&T VA rating does not guarantee eligibility for Social Security disability benefits. Learn how to receive expedited processing.
Oregon will soon become the 47th state to sign the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity. The compact helps military children transition to new schools after a Permanent Change of Station move. Is your state on the list?
