Farewell, Patty Duke

Patty Duke died last week at age 69.  

Along with her acting and other accomplishments, for several years Patty Duke did public service announcements for the Social Security Administration.

As a voluntary spokesperson, she helped promote a growing number of Social Security online services. 

My personal favorite of these is the video of her applying online for her own Social Security, now on YouTube. To show how easy the online application was to use, she applied from home while in her pajamas. This photo is from that video.


To honor her memory, the Social Security homepage has a thank you message and montage of her videos promoting agency services, also here on YouTube. 

Thank you, Patty.
