How Social Security Continues to Serve You During the Covid-19 Pandemic
May 21, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impose hardships and our country's most vulnerable citizens continue to suffer. Many people rely on face-to-face meetings to get the help they need. Since last year, we’ve seen fewer applications for the Disability Insurance (DI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. We’re working to let people know we are here to help with benefits, tools, and information.
We’re giving special attention to children with disabilities — along with their families and caretakers. If your client, or someone you know, has a child who may qualify for SSI, encourage them to apply by visiting our SSI Benefits page at www.ssa.gov/benefits/ssi.
Resources, such as our People Helping Others page, provide information for anyone helping someone with accessing our services at www.ssa.gov/thirdparty. There, your clients can access our Faith-Based Community Group Outreach Toolkit for groups and organizations to share with their networks.
