Lawmakers looking at social security reform

Albany- Congressman Sanford Bishop wants to help you learn about social security reform. He hosted an informational forum in Albany Thursday.

Panelists included representatives from AARP and the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.

Bishop says it's important to remember social security is not just for seniors.

"It's also a disability program for the disabled, a survivors program for dependents as well as for children. So there are a number of aspects of social security that have to be looked at," Bishop said.

Bishop is waiting for the President to give reform details before he decides how to vote.
