teacher standing in front of classThe past two years have been difficult for everyone, including educators and students. Our nation’s teachers have adapted and provided for their students in so many ways. We continue to honor all educators who prepare our children for the future.

We know that well-informed instructors can have a powerful and positive influence on their students. That’s why we created an Educator Toolkit. It’s a shareable online resource for teachers to engage students and educate them on Social Security. The toolkit includes:

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

You can access the toolkit on our Information for Educators page.

We value and welcome the efforts all teachers make to educate America’s young people. We want to help spark discussion with students about Social Security. Please share our toolkit with the educators in your communities today!

    Still trying to figure out why us DirectExpress can’t help me in getting back that was all fraudulent. The customer service is very short with and don’t seem to even care they don’t live from month to month like a lot of us do on disability benefits

    It’s good that they don’t forget about teachers who want to do their job well.

    Could you please make changes to this website? A few of the figures are not up-to-date (earnings credits as well as the solvency figure and disability statistics, etc.). I’d like to have the most current resources to help my students.

      Hi, Demaris. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have referred this to our website staff for review. Thanks, again.

        Who would I speak with regarding % of SS benefits I would receive since I am a teacher?

        Thank you.

          Hi, Deidre. Great question! You can create a personal my Social Security account to review estimates of your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits, your earnings record, and the estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid. If you have specific questions, you can call us at 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., for assistance. You can also contact your local Social Security office. We hope this helps.

    My respect for the teaching profession is at an all time low for the blatant sexualization being taught kids. Stick with wiring, reading, arithmetic as you are supposed to do. Stop bowing to the communist teacher’s unions.

    Can you please update this resource? Some of the figures are outdated (earnings credits, solvency figures, disability statistics, etc.). I want the most updated materials to teach my students. Thank you!
