Social Security recently launched its new blog, Social Security Matters. This is our new location for engaging with you by answering questions and concerns in a more sharable and interactive way. This is where you’ll see the latest Social Security news, like added features to my Social Security, helpful tips about retirement and other benefits, and much 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 anyone entitled to our broad range of services. We already communicate with you using Facebook and Twitter. This new blog is a meaningful enhancement to our social media outreach. Social Security Matters is easy-to-navigate and user-friendly — tags categorize the topics you care about into organized sections. This way you will always find the answers you are looking for.
Social Security Matters allows us to speak to a broad audience in articles that explain how our programs and services affect you. And the blog lets you provide meaningful feedback that can help us serve the public more effectively. The blog will also be a platform for interviews with experts and a way to spotlight the important work we do.
You know how much we matter to our beneficiaries. We’d like you to share that news. Social Security Matters lets you share our posts on social media with a click of a button. Additionally, you can subscribe to our blog and get Social Security news as it happens. Simply select the blue button titled “Get blog updates.”
You matter to us, and with Social Security Matters, we think of you with every new post. Our comment section allows you to voice your thoughts and ask questions of us to address. The conversation is growing every day. No matter what, we want to know that we are doing our absolute best to serve you, and a big part of that is listening to what you have to say.
