Social Security is a play by Andrew Bergman.

It focuses on trendy Manhattanmarker art gallery owners Barbara and David Kahn, whose life is upended when her Mineolamarker housewife sister Trudy deposits their eccentric mother Sophie on the couple's doorstep while she and her husband Martin head to Buffalomarker to rescue their sexually precocious college student daughter from a menage a trois with two men. Barbara and David introduce Sophie to suave nonagenarian artist Maurice Koenig, who offers to paint her portrait and soon begins to brighten her life in ways she never expected in her twilight years.

After twenty-six previews, the Broadwaymarker production, directed by Mike Nichols, opened on April 17 1986 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatremarker, where it ran for 388 performances. The cast included Marlo Thomas as Barbara, Ron Silver as David, Joanna Gleason as Trudy, Olympia Dukakis as Sophie, Stefan Schnabel as Maurice, and Kenneth Welsh as Martin. Later in the run, Marilu Henner and Cliff Gorman assumed the roles of Barbara and David.

Drama Desk Awards went to Gleason for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play and Tony Walton for Outstanding Set Design.
