The Social Security Administration (SSA) is phasing out the paper notices that they have been sending through the mail to Americans who are eligible for Social Security. Everyone will need to create a "my Social Security" account on SSA's website. SSA is asking many institutions around the country, including libraries, to help them get the word out about this to all Americans.
SSA will schedule a my Social Security Event at your library to help your patrons sign up. They'll send a representative with a laptop at a scheduled time, and ask that you advertise the program for them. Even if you choose not to schedule an event, please share this information with your patrons.
To schedule an event with SSA contact: Jewell Colbert, Regional Communications Director in the Kansas City office, email@example.com or John Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also email email@example.com or call 816-936-5740.
