Social Security out and about for the common good in May

Agency working with faith-based, other groups to introduce Social Security benefits

Photo of group in circle holding handsApril 21, 2016 - Social Security emerged from the Great Depression to promote the economic security of our nation’s people. It provides security and peace of mind for America’s workers and their families. Social Security helps protect families against loss of income when the unexpected happens, such as a disability or the loss of a loved one.

On May 1–8, the Social Security Administration will celebrate a special week of action by joining forces with faith-based and community groups across the country to increase awareness about the agency’s programs and services.

This year’s campaign theme is “Shining a Light on Your Lifetime Protections.” The goal is to increase knowledge about tools that could change lives for the better and set them on a sound financial course.

We invite you to participate in this effort.  You can learn about your current and future Social Security benefits by creating a free my Social Security account. Easy, convenient and secure, a personal my Social Security account is the best way to accomplish a multitude of Social Security tasks online.

This special week is also an excellent opportunity to tell people about myRA, the exciting new starter retirement savings plan for earners without access to a retirement plan at work.  Visit the campaign website to learn how you can help spread the message about securing today and tomorrow.

We would like to thank faith and community groups for all they do to care for their neighbors and promote their well-being.  We look forward to continuing to work with you in the days ahead.
