Happy Anniversary, Social Security!
Social Security’s is turning 80! Since the retirement program was enacted in 1935, it has expanded in important ways. The disability component, introduced later, is a now critical piece of Social Security, and ensures that those who aren’t able to work have a small measure of protection. Now is the time to ensure that the Social Security programs remain strong for our future.
We join others in honoring this anniversary and calling for the program’s protection in the future. Ask candidates where they stand on Social Security programs in the lead up to the 2016 election.
