We take pride in having provided vital benefits and services to this great nation for 85 years. America has a diverse population with a variety of needs, so we’ve created webpages that speak directly to groups of specific people who may need information about our programs and services. These pages are easy to share with friends and family or on social media. Here are just a few that might speak to you or someone you love.

We proudly serve wounded warriors and veterans. They made sacrifices to preserve the freedoms Americans treasure, but many do not know they might be entitled to disability benefits from Social Security. Share our resources with them to make sure they get the benefits they deserve: https://ssa.gov/people/veterans

Social Security plays an important role in providing economic security for women. Nearly 55 percent of the people receiving Social Security benefits are women. However, with a longer life expectancy than men, women tend to live more years in retirement and thus face a greater chance of exhausting other sources of income. Also, women often receive lower lifetime earnings than men, which usually means lower benefits. Women therefore need to plan early and wisely for retirement. We’re here to provide valuable information to help, so please share this page with mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, nieces and other female relatives and friends who may need help planning for their golden years: https://ssa.gov/people/women.

Do you know someone who is just starting their career? Now is the best time for them to start preparing for retirement. The sooner they begin to save, the more they’ll have at retirement. Share this page with a young worker you know: https://ssa.gov/people/earlycareer.

These are just a few webpages that are tailored to a specific group’s needs. If you didn’t see one on your own, check out our People Like Me home page at ssa.gov/people.
