The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM) is a liberal advocacy group seeking to preserve Social Security and Medicare in its present government-run forms.

Through its political action committee the Committee openly supports Democratic Party candidates and opposes Republican Party candidates.[1] As such it has supported passage of the Affordable Care Act.[2] and opposed the passage of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 and the Republican Party's efforts to reform Social Security in 2005.[3]

In addition, the Committee attempted to scam members and potential supporters by offering, for $10, to send a printout of a person's Social Security records, notwithstanding that any person can obtain his/her records free from the Social Security Administration. The organization eventually halted this appeal.[4]
