Nearly every worker’s dream is to have a secure retirement to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Social Security is here to help your employees secure today and tomorrow. Part of that commitment is to ensure that your employees have the most up-to-date information so they can make the most advantageous retirement decisions.
A secure, comfortable retirement is every worker's dream. Nowadays workers are living longer, healthier lives. Your employees can expect to spend more time in retirement than their parents and grandparents. It is important that their earnings are posted correctly on their Social Security record, as it will affect their benefits when they retire.
When people think about Social Security, the first thing that comes to mind is retirement. The second is disability. But, our agency is so much more. We have tools, information, and services to help secure today and tomorrow for your employees and their families.
When you start receiving Social Security benefits, certain members of your family may also qualify for benefits on your record. Benefits may be paid to:
For more than 80 years, Social Security has helped secure today and tomorrow with financial benefits that support millions of Americans throughout life’s journey.
Social Security wants to help you prepare your employees for a secure, comfortable retirement. Security is the Social Security Administration’s middle name and we want everyone to enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of labor.
Death is something most of us don’t like to think about. We plan for life, for that day when we retire, for the places we’ll go and the things that we’ll do then. Unfortunately, death is a part of life we must prepare for. The death of a worker is devastating for the entire family, not only emotionally, but also financially.
Social Security is with you through life’s journey — from when you’re born, through forming a family, and into retirement. While everyone’s situation is different, women face unique challenges when choosing when to retire and making other decisions related to their future Social Security benefits.
