  Social Security Works  

For 79 years Social Security has paid out every benefit owed to every eligible American, and for 79 years its opponents have tried to dismantle Social Security and cut the benefits earned over a lifetime of hard work.

At every turn the American people have turned back those attacks, and now a majority of Americans—Democrats, Republicans and Independents from Maine to Alaska—favor expanding Social Security benefits, not cutting them.

Please support Social Security Works today to ensure Washington politicians get the message: Expand, don't cut Social Security!

Expanding Social Security is a simple idea: it means making our Social Security system work even better by ensuring that benefits are able to meet the costs that seniors and people with disabilities face every day. It means a stronger Social Security Administration that can ensure that people can access the benefits they earn throughout their working lives.

Thanks to you, our voices are being heard. Just in the last year, Social Security Works and our national people-powered network have:

  • Successfully petitioned President Obama to drop the benefit cutting Chained CPI from his annual budget.
  • Worked with members of Congress to introduce six Social Security expansion bills.
  • Shined a spotlight on recent Social Security office closures (and gotten Congress to respond)
  • Changed the national conversation away from shrinking our Social Security system towards expanding it.
Every day we are getting more candidates and elected officials on the record opposing cuts and supporting expansion. But at the same time, we have to be prepared for the next Wall Street attack to our earned benefits.

We know that Social Security is strong, but there are still those in Washington that would rather listen to the crooks on Wall Street who line their campaign coffers rather than support the retirement security of their own constituents.

Your support is critical to ensuring Congress addresses the retirement security crisis by expanding, not cutting Social Security benefits.

We have made major progress, but it is going to take a sustained effort to fight Wall Street and ensure our voices are heard loud and clear, Social Security works and now is the time to expand it.
Please stand with us by donating whatever you can today.

Thank you for all of your support.
