The Social Security Administration is reaching out to public libraries in
hopes that you might choose to partner with them on some new initiatives. I
have been asked to pass along this information for your consideration.
Please read the message below that I received from the President of the
Chief Officers of State Library Agencies. --> Jim
Social Security is involved in a wide variety of new and important
initiatives. They have asked libraries throughout the country to partner
with them to share information about these initiatives with the American
* Specifically, they have asked us to help promote their new national
campaign Retire Online. It¹s So Easy! This campaign features a new online
retirement application that can be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
The application is available online at www.socialsecurity.gov
<http://www.socialsecurity.gov/> , and can easily be completed at any of our
library computers. A brochure on the subject can be viewed at
* In May 2009, as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009, Social Security will distribute a one-time payment of $250 to over 55
million Social Security and Supplemental Security Income beneficiaries. A
leaflet which discusses this in greater detail is available online at
* Later this year, Social Security will be launching their third annual
Mother¹s Day and Father¹s Day campaigns promoting the Extra Help with
Medicare prescription drug plan costs. The agency will keep us updated as
to when these new outreach materials are available.
Partnering with Social Security to promote these initiatives will benefit
the populations we serve. One way you can do this is by linking to the
agency¹s website at www.socialsecurity.gov <http://www.socialsecurity.gov/>
. Publishing articles about these initiatives in your newsletters or other
publications is another method of getting this important information out.
Finally, if you would like copies of the retire online or one-time payment
brochures, or you need additional information from Social Security please
e-mail Carolyn Houston at Carolyn.Houston at ssa.gov or call her at
410-965-7603. Please indicate the quantity desired (in units of 100) and
where the publications should be shipped.
