" "It typically takes people a lifetime of planning to reach their retirement goals. The earlier young workers know about saving for their future, the better chance they’ll have at achieving a comfortable retirement. This is why Social Security has created a resource specifically for teachers and students.

Our Information for Educators page contains a toolkit with information and resources to educate and engage students on Social Security programs and services. Within the toolkit, you’ll find:

  • Two lesson plans with objectives.
  • Infographics and handouts for each lesson plan.
  • Links to Social Security webpages.
  • Talking points.
  • Quiz questions and answers.

It’s important for students to understand why Social Security was created and why it is essential to their lives today and in the future. This knowledge and understanding will provide students a strong base on which to build their financial future.

You can access the webpage and toolkit on our website. Young workers can also see how Social Security directly relates to them.

Encouraging young people to save now for long-term goals that are decades away can be somewhat difficult. Let them know they have a better chance of realizing their dreams if they start planning and taking action early. And also let them know that they can share this information with friends, both in person and on social media.

    Please tell me that “Teachers” will have to pay into the Social Security System. At least in CA teachers retirement plans have phenomenal. & generous benefits. I do not know if teacher benefits are local government paid or if the teachers pay into the system. Teachers when I went to school in the 40’s, 50’s, and early 60’s were AMAZING. So many kids coming out of CA schools with spelling, reading, grammar etc appear to be lacking. Just curious.

    Hi,je n’ai pas beaucoup compris ce texte en anglais car je suis un francophone. Avec le temps j’y arriverais. Au sujet du Webinar prévu en mon intention le 09/25/2019 , j’assisterais bien si c’est possible en français. Je suis plain de phobies au contact des personnes, je crains de sortir humilié. Breyevement.,
    Mon CV: formation ingénieur en mécanique unités pétrochimiques, 6 ans d’expérience. En suite 18 ans comme professeur de mécanique (fraisage. Tournage etc) ,et 30 ans comme commerçant en en parallèle. J’apprécie et vous remercie beaucoup pour votre aide .
