Social Security’s 80th Anniversary

Today marks the 80th anniversary of the Social Security program. The program was signed into law by President Roosevelt in 1935 and was intended to provide “some measure of protection to the average citizen and to his family against the loss of a job and against poverty-ridden old age.” The program has served our nations workers ever since. Please continue to encourage our lawmakers of the need to protect and strengthen the program.
