Social Security is turning 80! Since the retirement program was enacted in 1935, it has expanded in important ways. The disability component, introduced later, is now a critical piece of Social Security, and it ensures that those who aren't able to work have a small measure of protection and stability. Now is the time to ensure that the Social Security programs remains strong for our future. I'm joining with other NOSSCR members in honoring this anniversary and calling for the program's protection in the future.
