Congressman Cohen Celebrates 81st Anniversary of Social Security
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) issued the following statement to commemorate the 81st anniversary of Social Security, which was signed into law on August 14, 1935: “Social Security is more than just a retirement program – it is a lifeline that keeps millions of Americans out of poverty.  More than 110,000 citizens of the Ninth District rely on Social Security to help pay for basic necessities like food, healthcare and housing.
