THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
PROMOTES FIVE STEPS TO FINANCIAL SECURITY

In April, (Earlier this month, the Social Security Administration (SSA) invited Americans to celebrate the first National Social Security Month by learning more about the agency’s protections and developing a financial plan that includes Social Security.

Social Security keeps roughly one-third of older African Americans and Hispanics and 20 percent of older Asians out of poverty. One-third of older African Americans and Hispanics in families receiving Social Security depend on it for more than 90 percent of their family income.1

The National Social Security Month campaign highlighted five steps that help promote financial security:

  1. Get to know your Social Security
  2. Verify your lifetime earnings with a my Social Security account
  3. Estimate your Social Security benefits at my Social Security
  4. Apply online for retirement, disability, or Medicare benefits, and
  5. Manage your Social Security benefits.

COVID-19

The Black Women’s Agenda endorses federal, state and local government public health warnings prescribed to mitigate the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS~CoV-2) (formerly called HCoV-19 and commonly called COVID-19). 

The assertion that coronavirus only threatens older people has been debunked. While data is rapidly being compiled, COVID-19 is trending across all age demographics because of the potentially high transmission from virus shed in asymptomatic patients and the ability for the virus to remain infectious in the air for hours and on surfaces such as plastic and steel for days.
