Not me. Not yet!
I hope you have taken a moment to enjoy what Social Security Matters has to offer in the short time since its launch. Having another way to communicate with the American public is important to me. This interactive experience offers great insight on what you think we are doing well and how you believe we can improve.
Today is very special — we are just 80 days away from Social Security’s 80th anniversary. On August 14, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. Today, Social Security is much more than the retirement program started 80 years ago. We remain the safety net for so many who depend on us each day.
I am delighted to share that you can join our celebration by visiting our newly launched website. This site offers an inside peek into our history, who we are today, and what you can expect from us in the future. I hope you will visit the site often to keep abreast of the activities taking place to commemorate this significant milestone. There will even be daily quick facts so you can learn more about Social Security.
I am proud to lead such a great organization as we continue to provide you with compassionate and professional service. In looking to the future with great anticipation and innovation, I am inspired—still—by President Roosevelt’s vision to meet the ever-changing needs of the public each day.
Here’s to another 80 years of serving the public!
