Happy 81st Birthday Social Security


On August 14th, Social Security turns 81 years old.

For 81 years, through good times and bad, Social Security has been there for America’s seniors. And over the years, Social Security’s modest benefits have been expanded to include veterans, people with disabilities, children and surviving spouses.

Social Security is one of our nation's most successful government programs, keeping over 20 million Americans out of poverty every year.

That's why we're holding birthday parties around the country to celebrate our Social Security system! To see if there's a party in your state, check out the map above. If there isn't a birthday party (and we'll buy the cake), please consider hosting one.
