On August 14, 2010, America’s most successful and popular government program marked 75 years of serving millions of workers who’ve retired, become disabled or leave survivors after their death. Today, more than 50 million people receive Social Security benefits, touching the lives of virtually every American family. In celebration of this milestone, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare launched “Social Security at 75 – Keeping the Promise”, a month-long commemoration of the program and people it serves.
