Social Security Servicios for the Hispanic Community

A large Hispanic family smilingHola! September 15 to October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month, and Social Security is proud to offer many of our services in Spanish. We invite you to look at our Spanish website www.segurosocial.gov.

With 57 million people, the Hispanic population in the United States is the largest ethnic minority group in the U.S. According to the Census Bureau, between 2000 and 2010, the Hispanic population grew by 43 percent. And more than half of the growth in the total population of the United States between 2000 and 2010 was due to the increase in the Hispanic population.

To meet the needs of a growing Hispanic population, Social Security provides a range of online services. On most pages of our main site, you can select a tab at the top of the page to have the language appear in Spanish. From there, Spanish speakers can use our online services – Servicios por Internet. They can apply for retirement, survivors, or disability benefits, and the Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug plan costs. We also have a Spanish language option when you call us a 1-800-772-1213. We have many automated services available in Spanish, and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, you can speak to a Spanish-speaking Social Security representative. In addition, many of our field offices have free Spanish interpreter services available.

Hispanics tend to live longer, and will spend more years in retirement. Our Retirement Estimator gives estimates your future benefits based on your actual Social Security earnings record. It’s an invaluable tool when planning your long future.

You can find out more online about conducting business with Social Security in Spanish. We also have many of our publications available in Spanish at www.socialsecurity.gov. Some of the publications are specific to the Hispanic population.

This Hispanic Heritage Month, let’s all remember that Social Security will continue to serve our Hispanic customers by providing a range of services and benefits tailored to their needs.

    This revision has been done at the last minute to reduce redundancy and should be mathematically equal to the previous version that is equally authentic and reinforces the repetitiveness of the OASDI tax calculation.

    Hecho por no documentado quien no es victim de ‘hate crime governmental’ hoy por suerte de la Hippocratic divinidad de Hygienia del Convencion relatando al estado del refugio. Estoy listo aunque SSA habla la lenguaje de no estar listo gracias al nuevo alternativa emergencia Free DIRT Act para procrastinadores quien no quieren nullificar la regla constitucional para no leyes retroactivas porque es pura contador, sin impuesto verdadero. Computadoras de Apple cuestan $900 y nadie sabe si associacion con SSA destruye la privacia de Apples tambien. Si no es bastante insultar la salud y morales de su contador esclavo y SSA iba a querer recriminar officialmente y robar me mis benefitos, escribaria primero a Social Security Matters. Hospitals & Asylums. Health and Welfare. 10th Ed. http://www.title24uscode.org/haw.doc

  2. I see a lot of different views but the smartest I feel is Wendy’s blog. You can’t just jump the border and qualify for ssi/ssdi. It’s not that simple. If it was then the society we live in today would all get it

    • Yes, Josh you can just jump the border, check into a hospital, have your baby, and the child will be a U.S. liability for their entire life. You can be a natural born U.S. citizen and that is the group that is ineligible for any Government assistance.

  3. Great news. We all need a little help now and again when English is not a first language, and it is useful to have a site specially tailored to the interests of Hispanics. And – I did not know that Hispanics tend to live longer. That is very interesting! I wonder why that is.

  4. Illegals expect for us to provide for them as soon as they cross the border and they have an anchor baby, and it happens. That one anchor baby is a domino effect because it brings more of them from the same woman every 18 months or so and these illegals are now set for the next 18 years. If the baby is born sick than here comes SSI and Medicaid.

  5. it is so sad people are so ignorant today , The government knows they are using our money for these illegals which is sad they have to meet on judgement day and they won*t be able to lie and steal. they should think about it.coming remember the money is the root of all evil and will always be sorry but no government or illegal can change this saying. we try to teach our children not to do this and then we find out the old people are doing this so sad.
