SSA Launches a New Blog

Social Security recently launched a new blog, “Social Security Matters,” a new location for engaging with viewers by answering questions and concerns in a more interactive way.

It offers the latest Social Security news, such as added features to My Social Security, tips about retirement and other benefits, and more.

Think of the blog as a dashboard for the latest news and updates that affect retirement, survivors and disability benefits, veterans, the chronically ill, and all those entitled to Social Security services. This blog is a meaningful enhancement to Social Security’s social media outreach through Facebook and Twitter.

The blog speaks to a broad audience in articles that explain how programs and services affect beneficiaries, and it allows users to provide meaningful feedback. The blog will also be a platform for interviews with experts and a way to spotlight services. Additionally, with the blue “Get blog updates” button, viewers can subscribe to the blog to receive Social Security news as it happens.

A comment section allows readers to voice their thoughts and ask questions about issues they would like to have addressed.
