Social Security is your money — you've earned it through a lifetime of hard work. It puts retirement in reach for MILLIONS of Americans and helps us afford every day expenses like groceries, gas and housing. For many older Massachusetts residents, Social Security is their only reliable, inflation-protected income source and it has been helping Americans since it's inception on August 14, 1935.

We are celebrating Social Security's 89th Birthday with chances for you to have fun while learning more about the Social Security program. Feel free to sign up at no cost for the below in-person and virtual events.

Community Conversation:
July 18: Our Voices Decide, Protect Social Security- You Earned It!":
In this election year, AARP is fighting to get candidates, regardless of party, to offer solutions for protecting our hard-earned Social Security. In this interactive Community Conversation, you’ll learn how Social Security is funded and about the future health and stability of the program. You’ll also learn how you can help protect Social Security for the hard-working Americans who have earned it. We need to elect candidates who will listen to our struggles — and pass helpful commonsense solutions. After all, Social Security is your money—you earned it through a lifetime of hard work.
