The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impose hardships, especially on people who face barriers to accessing services and benefits. These include people with low-income, limited English proficiency, facing homelessness, or with mental illness, who have historically relied on meeting with us face-to-face to get the help they need.
Your voice makes a difference in the lives of people across America, and we ask that use your reach to make another positive difference.
- Outreach Materials for People Facing Barriers: An up-to-date list of resources and materials that you can use to learn about the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program and help spread the word in your community. We encourage you to share these materials widely, through external and internal websites, social media, blogs, and newsletters.
- People Helping Others: Helping someone in need is very rewarding. The help you provide, whether through your organization or directly to a family member or friend, can make all the difference in someone’s life. Our People Helping Others page shows how you can help someone apply for benefits and get other help from Social Security.
We also offer additional resources for specific groups to increase awareness of our programs and online services.
We offer information and resources for educational professionals to teach school aged children about Social Security, and why it is important in people's lives today and in the future.

Faith-based and community groups have an important voice in communities across our nation. We provide information and resources on initiatives to help people understand their Social Security protections.
Social Security is an important financial component for tens of millions of people. We provide information and resources for financial planners to help their clients understand the various Social Security programs and Medicare, and plan for retirement or other life events.
Social Security doesn’t simply begin upon retirement. Planning is important. We offer information and resources for human resource professionals to help their employees plan for retirement or other life events.
Receiving benefits from Social Security doesn’t necessarily mean no more taxes. We provide information and resources for tax preparers about our online services and tools designed to help save tax preparation time and effort.
