Statement: Happy Birthday to Social Security

In observing this anniversary, we need to celebrate the critical role played by Social Security in enabling older Americans and workers who become disabled to live independently and not be a burden to their offspring.  We also need to be vigilant and protect Social Security from ill-advised efforts to cut benefits. Statement on 77th Birthday of Social Security

The National Senior Citizens Law Center is a non-profit organization whose principal mission is to protect the rights of low-income older adults. Through advocacy, litigation, and the education and counseling of local advocates, we seek to ensure the health and economic security of those with limited income and resources, and access to the courts for all.
