Get Social With Social Security

Social Security has a new Social Media [email protected] www.socialsecurity.gov/socialmedia. The hub is a one-stop center where you can connect with Social Security. It????????s easy to sign up for free emails and texts that keep you informed when we update our web pages. You can connect with Social Security using Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and Pinterest. You can also get info about our webinars, podcasts, and photoblog.

Let????????s take a look at three of the various ways you can interact with Social Security. First let????????s talk about getting updates. A number of pages throughout the website feature a link with a red envelope that says ??????Get Updates?????? located on the right hand side of the page below the subject tabs (for example, ??????Business Services??????). Clicking on that link will allow you to subscribe to updates for that particular page. You can also click on the red envelope on the homepage at the Social Media Hub. You????????ll be taken to a second page that also has a red envelope. When you click on that envelope, you????????ll be shown a list of the available subscription pages. Some pages allow you to sign up for text messages on your cell phone when the page is updated. Your carrier????????s standard message and data rates do apply.

You can choose how often you wish to be notified (immediately, daily, weekly or monthly) by cell even though the topic you choose may not be updated that frequently. That same frequency option is also offered for the email updates. You can change or cancel your subscription at any time.

We respect your privacy so your email address will only be used to register you for email updates and to allow you to access your account.

What kind of pages can you subscribe to? Social Security News, Webinars, What You Can Do Online, Press Releases, Social Security Publications, Disability Research and the Social Media pages for Facebook, Twitter and You Tube among other popular pages.

How might you use the information? If you subscribe to the Social Security News page, you????????ll be able to find out about important news issues relating to Social Security. If you keep several Social Security publications handy for your own reference and sign up for the Social Security Publications page, you????????ll know when those publications are updated. If you choose to subscribe to the What You Can Do Online page, you????????ll be among the first to know when Social Security adds a new online service or updates an existing service. Getting updates is an efficient method to find out about what????????s new at Social Security. Sign up for your updates today at www.socialsecurity.gov by clicking the red envelope under the Social Media Hub section.

Next, let????????s look at webinars. Webinars are videos that you can view about a number of different Social Security topics. From the homepage at the Social Media Hub, just click on the icon that looks like a TV set. As you scroll down the page on the left side, you see pictures from the most recent webinars. On the right side, you????????ll see a list of past webinars. Maybe you want to watch ??????How Social Security Can Help You Plan for Retirement?????? or maybe your young family member might want to view ??????Social Security 101: What????????s in it for me??????? But there????????s more. There are regional webcasts available at www.socialsecurity.gov/denver . Here you might select from ??????How To Replace Your Medicare Card Online?????? or ??????Frequently Asked Questions?????? (Click on More Webcasts).
