Social Security Launches New Spanish Online Services Matching English Version

TV superstar Don Francisco helps announce retirement and medicare extra help applications at www.segurosocial.gov

Nov. 18, 2011 – Social Security’s most popular online services – the applications for retirement and Medicare and for Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs - are now available in Spanish. The new online services are available at www.segurosocial.gov, which is the Spanish version of Social Security’s award winning website, www.socialsecurity.gov.

“The Spanish online applications for retirement, Medicare, and Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs are so easy and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes,” said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security.

“I’m proud that Social Security is a leader in the Federal government in providing service in Spanish, and I thank Don Francisco for volunteering his time to help spread the word about these new online services.”

Retirement benefits calculator also in Spanish

In addition to the new applications, Social Security has also recently made online estimates of retirement benefits available in Spanish. People interested in planning for retirement can get an immediate, personalized estimate of their Social Security benefit by using the Retirement Estimator at www.segurosocial.gov/calculador.

Using people’s actual wages from their Social Security record, the Estimator gives a good idea of what to expect in retirement. Workers can enter in different dates and future wage projections to get estimates for different retirement scenarios, which is why this service is one of the most highly rated electronic services in the public or private sector.

 “I have good news to share with the millions of Americans who prefer to conduct business in Spanish, said Don Francisco, who will appear in several new public service announcements for Social Security.

“You can now apply online for Social Security retirement and Medicare benefits in Spanish, as well as take advantage of other online services offered in Spanish at www.segurosocial.gov. ¡Es tan fácil!”

Once people complete the online application and “sign” it with the click of a mouse, the application is complete and, in most cases, there are no documents to submit or additional paperwork to fill out. It’s the easiest way to apply, and now it’s available in Spanish.

Social Security also noted, “The program that provides Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs is NOT available to residents of Puerto Rico because the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 made other provisions for Puerto Rico.”

Financial Relief for Volkswagen Diesel Owners

You may be eligible for money damages if you owned or leased one of these VW, Porsche or Audi vehicles.

In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.

They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.

If you owned or leased one of these vehicles, contact us now.
