Public Service Recognition Week, May 1-7, is a special time to celebrate those who serve our country as federal, state, county and local government employees. This year’s theme is “Honoring Our Public Servants.”
Public service is a part of the foundation of our great country. We are proud to be part of that foundation. Social Security is with you through life’s journey. Each day our more than 60,000 employees provide invaluable service to the public in communities across the country. Each day I witness firsthand, how our staff serve the public with care and compassion. They are enduring champions for the most vulnerable in our community assisting thousands everyday with exceptional service.
From those who work in our field and hearing offices, teleservice and payment centers, to those who serve at our headquarters, our employees embody the mission of our agency. As Acting Commissioner, I am honored and extremely proud to work side by side with our employees in serving the needs of the public.
I want to extend my personal thanks to all of our employees for their commitment and dedication as public servants. Securing today and tomorrow would not be possible without them. I know they will continue to provide exemplary service to the public.
Please join me in taking time this week to recognize someone for their hard work, dedication and excellence in public service. I am sure they will appreciate the acknowledgment.
