In April, the SSA celebrates National Social Security Month, a month dedicated to educating the public about who they are, why they exist, and the programs and services available to help Americans “Secure Today and Tomorrow.” Throughout the month, the SSA will encourage its customers to “Get to Know Your Social Security” with a focus on online transactions. SSA will also collaborate with groups and organizations around the country to host numerous events and activities to raise awareness about its many valuable benefits, services, and programs.
