"It is basic American moral and religious values that underlie this program." – Nancy Altman

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the enactment of Social Security. Some argue that Social Security is unaffordable and therefore its benefits should be cut. Others argue that the issue is not one of affordability but of values. The latter group argues that expanding Social Security’s modest benefits is a solution to a number of challenges facing the nation, including a looming retirement income crisis and rising income inequality.

Join us for a conversation with Nancy J. Altman, co-director of Social Security Works, co-chair of the Strengthen Social Security coalition, and author of two books on the facts about Social Security and the benefits of expanding it, as she discusses one perspective on this crucial debate.
