Chairman Andrews addresses workers' rights at a HELP Subcommittee Hearing on the Employee Free Choice Act.
STIMULUS PAYMENT FOR SENIOR CITIZENS AND VETERANS
Due to the recent Stimulus Package, individuals who receive Social Security benefits and/or Veterans benefits that were not required to file a tax return in the past will have to do so this year in order to receive their stimulus payments. The IRS will be sending out detailed information packets at the end of March guiding those who receive these benefits through the forms.
These forms should be very easy to fill out and there is no need to pay anyone to complete the paperwork. If you have any problems or difficulties, there are numerous resources you can turn to for help including:
The County Division of Senior Services
The Volunteer Tax Assistance Program (1-800-906-9887)
The Tax Counseling For the Elderly Program (1-888-227-7669)
CHILDREN’S DEFENSE FUND ACTION COUNCIL NAMES REP. ANDREWS AMONG THE “BEST REPRESENTATIVES FOR CHILDREN”
I am truly humbled that the Children’s Defense Fund Action Council (CDFAC) named me one of the “Best Representatives for Children.” The CDFAC today released its 2007 Nonpartisan Congressional Scorecard, which grades every Member of Congress based on key votes affecting children, and I am proud to say that I voted to protect the health and well being of NJ’s children 100 percent of the time. I was awarded this distinction by voting to support the first increase in the minimum wage in a decade, access and quality improvements in Head Start, and additional funds for student loans.
