The Social Security Administration has created a new website counting down to Social Security’s 80th anniversary this summer. 

Under the tag: “Celebrating the Past and Building the Future” SSA provides beneficiaries and the SSA staffers who serve them, the opportunity to tell their stories. 

According to SSA’s news release:

“The agency also has planned several additional events, such as celebrating “America’s Favorites: Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie & SSA” Night that will include a ball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Oakland A’s and at other games around the country.  Stay tuned to the 80th Anniversary website for information on exciting upcoming events as they are planned!

‘As I reflect on our agency’s rich history, I am deeply honored to be a part of such a great organization with employees who truly embody the spirit of passionate public service,’ Acting Commissioner Colvin said.  ‘There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in the lives of others, and with our collective commitment, there is no limit to what we can achieve.  Happy 80th Anniversary, Social Security!’
