A Letter from Social Security

Dear Colleague:

This year, Social Security turns 80 years old. That’s 80 years of ensuring financial security for millions of individuals—often keeping them from falling into poverty. As part of our 80th anniversary celebration, we’re inviting faith and community leaders from across the country to participate in Social Security Faith Week of Action from Sunday, August 2 through Saturday, August 8, 2015. This special week will highlight America’s most successful social program and encourage individuals to take charge of their financial future by creating a secure my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

To participate, please visit the Faith Week of Action web page at www.socialsecurity.gov/thirdparty/faithaction. When we receive your RSVP, we will send a confirmation email and an event planning toolkit.

 On Thursday, July 23 at 11:00 a.m. ET, we will host a conference call to discuss Social Security’s Faith Week of Action. To join the call, please dial 1-800-776-0816 and enter the passcode 930047# (you must press the # symbol).

 I appreciate your help with giving workers the tools they need to forge a secure future for themselves and their families! I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,   Jioni Palmer  .  Associate Commissioner for External Affairs    (T)    (E) Jioni.Palmer@ssa.gov
