LOS ANGELES —

The cast of TV's 1960s comedy "The Patty Duke Show" is reuniting to promote the Social Security Administration's new online service aimed at baby boomers.

Duke and Social Security commissioner Michael J. Astrue were in Los Angeles on Tuesday to debut the public service announcement.

The Social Security Administration is betting a majority of baby boomers, the first to grow old in the computer age, will embrace paperless online registration for Social Security and Medicare. It takes 15 minutes or less.

Astrue says up to 10,000 baby boomers apply for benefits each day, and that pace is expected to continue for 20 years. Another 700,000 disability and 300,000 retirement claims are being filed annually with the agency because of the recession.
