The Social Security Administration Turns 79!
A Message from Acting Commissioner Colvin
As we reflect on the 79th anniversary of Social Security, let’s remember Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous words upon signing the Social Security Act into law on August 14, 1935:
“Today, a hope of many years’ standing is in large part fulfilled… We have tried to frame a law which will give some measure of protection to the average citizen and to his family against the loss of a job and against poverty-ridden old age.”
Seventy-nine years later, we continue to support President Roosevelt’s vision of hope and protection for the most vulnerable members of the American public through our efforts each and every day. As I reflect on our 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. There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in the lives of others. With our collective renewed commitment, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
Happy 79th anniversary SSA!
