Will Social Security Benefits Be There When We Need Them?

Absolutely — just as Social Security has been there for every generation since 1935. The system is too essential to the economy and too important to the well-being of millions of Americans for it to disappear. It can and will be preserved.

Absolutely — just as Social Security has been there for every generation since 1935. The system is too essential to the economy and too important to the well-being of millions of Americans for it to disappear. It can and will be preserved.

Of course, Social Security advocates will still have to fight to ensure that any changes made in the system are safe and fair. Surveys show that if a worker has no confidence in Social Security’s future, they will be more likely to support risky privatization schemes. Our job, as AFSCME members, is to spread the word to our friends and families about the real strengths of Social Security.

Working together, we can rebuild their confidence in a great system that protects us all.
