Celebrating Those Who Invest in Our SuccessReading Time: 2 Minutes
Last Updated: May 2, 2017
Education is the way to forge a better future. The things we learn today can mold the way we’ll live tomorrow. This is something Social Security takes seriously. We know the work you do today will shape the benefits you’ll receive later on.
During May 1-5, we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week, a time to celebrate the role of educators in our lives. Most of us remember those dedicated individuals who helped us learn our ABCs and solve math problems while they shaped our intellect through lessons and encouragement.
Daily, teachers go beyond the call of basic instruction. Their contributions to our society are invaluable. Their dedication and lifetime commitment to their work is unrivaled, a dedication and commitment that Social Security can relate to.
Our agency seeks to educate the public about the programs and benefits we have to offer. Whether you’re getting married, having your first child, or applying for disability, we want you to know all the options available to you.
We’re with you throughout life’s journey, have been for more than 80 years, but there’s a lot people don’t know about Social Security. We offer more than just retirement. We provide financial benefits, information, and tools to help secure your today and tomorrow.
We are there when you’re born, when you get your first job, and on the day you retire. We are there to explain the uses for your Social Security card, what FICA is, and what happens to your family if you die.
You can learn more on Social Security’s newly launched Educator webpage and Toolkit and our Students’ Webpage. Teachers often say preparation is the key to success. Come learn all the ways Social Security helps you prepare for the future.
