As we get ready to celebrate our nation’s independence, let us also recognize the program that has been helping American’s secure their financial independence for more than 85 years — Social Security. To help ease the burden many people face, the Social Security Administration is working to make applying for and receiving benefits as convenient as possible. A blog post by the assistant deputy commissioner explains how the agency’s online tools make it easy to apply for Social Security benefits as well as Medicare.
Making sure that all deserving retirees have access to Social Security is one of the main goals of The Seniors Trust. This nonprofit program is committed to increasing benefits and securing the long-term solvency of our Social Security program through passage of the Social Security Expansion Act.
During its 80 years of existence, “Social Security has paid out every benefit owed to every eligible American on time and without delay.” This crucial institution has proven its reliability for nearly a century. We cannot afford to abandon it now. Join The Seniors Trust in urging lawmakers to take action to protect this important agency that so many seniors depend upon.
