Sen. Gillibrand Unveils “Master Plan on Aging” in Penn Yan


The population of the United States is aging rapidly and by 2034 the number of adults aged 65 and older will be greater than the number of children under 18 for the first time ever. During a stop in Penn Yan on Thursday, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand revealed her 5-point Master Plan on Aging to ensure every American has the support needed to age with dignity and financial security. The Senator was asked why she chose Penn Yan to make her announcement.


Senator Gillibrand said her comprehensive plan has solutions to ensure all older Americans have the right to:

1. Affordable and Healthy Meals
2. Affordable Health Care and Prescription Drugs
3. Social Security Benefits and Financial Security
4. Age in Place
5. Aging-Friendly Spaces and Employment
