If you're reading this blog in November, you've come to the right place at the right time. November is National Blog Posting Month. It also marks the debut of the Social Security Administration's new blog titled, "Social Security Matters."
The blog hopes to offer news and updates to all involved with the various Social Security programs, whether it is disability programs, or retirement or survivor's programs. With the announcement of the blog, the Social Security Administration is continuing to evolve and continues their efforts to reach out to beneficiaries on all forms of social media. The SSA also has a presence on Facebook and Twitter.
The new blog offers interactive features hoping to answer questions and help users navigate through the Administration's site and answer questions to help users. It features a questions and answers section, allowing visitors to post questions and offer feedback for the administration to address to better serve its users. The site also allows users to subscribe and stay in the loop with all posts and announcements via email. It also enables readers to easily share information across social media outlets with its one click feature.
Social Security Disability benefits through the Social Security Administration are crucial to the livelihood of millions of Americans. Their new blog should make it easier for users to learn about the various programs available, and how to obtain the services and benefits they may be entitled to.
People who believe that they may qualify for one of SSA's benefits programs may wish to consider reaching out to a firm familiar with SSA law to see if they qualify, and to learn how to apply.
