Social Security’s homepage, www.socialsecurity.gov, has a new look.
Our redesigned homepage now features a service channeling guide on the left side of the page, which lists the most sought-after services and information on the site. You’ll find the information or service you want quickly and easily, including links to:
applying online for benefits;
estimating your retirement benefits;
Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs;
services for people who already receive benefits; and
getting or replacing a Social Security card.
You can find great information categorized by general topic at the top of the home page, including Retirement, Disability, Survivors, Supplemental Security Income, Medicare, and Business Services. At the center of the page you’ll find information targeted for specific groups, such as Congress, the press, wounded warriors, government employees, as well as useful links ranging from emergency office closings to getting help with your situation. You’ll also find information about our agency, such as careers with Social Security, and the history of Social Security.
A news section keeps readers up to date on important Social Security news, and a large question mark to the right of the page takes you to our frequently asked questions.
Please visit our redesigned home page the next time you need a service or information from Social Security. Find it now at www.socialsecurity.gov.
