The White House is getting into financial planning. National Social Security Week is July 19-25

Dear Colleague:

July 1925, 2015 is National my Social Security Week. Now in its second year, this campaign aims to educate workers about the importance of planning thoughtfully for life events—starting with creating a secure my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

Throughout this week, we ask that you share our retirement planning and other messages with your members, employees, and the public by taking advantage of our 2015 my Social Security toolkit atwww.socialsecurity.gov/thirdparty.  Here you will discover a wealth of materials that you can begin using now to support the campaign. The toolkit includes eye-catching web banners and publication-ready content for internal and external web pages, blogs, newsletter articles, social media, and email blasts.

Creating a my Social Security account helps workers plan for their future and the future of their families by giving them convenient access to their own personalized Social Security Statement. TheStatement provides estimates of future retirement benefits at age 62, full retirement age, and age 70. It also lets workers verify the earnings information we have for them. This is important because future benefits depend on earnings.

On average, Social Security replaces just 40 percent of pre-retirement income. Yet only about half of American workers say they are contributing to a workplace retirement plan. We need your support to help workers understand that they will require other sources of retirement income in addition to Social Security, and that it’s never too early (or too late) to start thinking ahead.

Besides retirement, with a my Social Security account, you can also get estimates of future disability and survivor benefits you or your family may be eligible to receive. For those already receiving benefits, a my Social Security can be used to get benefit verification letters, change an  address and phone number, and start or update direct deposit information.

In addition, we welcome invitations to assist workers with creating a my Social Security account at your location, whether as part of another activity, such as a conference or annual meeting, or as a standalone event. To explore this possibility, please contact us at oea.net.post@ssa.gov.

To hear more about my Social Security from Social Security’s Acting Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin, visit us at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loBsUPMFYfs.

Thank you for sharing our materials and helping us to make this vital campaign a success!

Sincerely,

  1. Jioni Palmer
    Associate Commissioner for External Affairs

President Obama designates June 15th Elder Abuse Day

Released by the White House Conference on Aging Council:

Elder Justice Forum Panel

The President designated Monday, June 15, 2015 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, and he called on all Americans to observe the day by “learning the signs of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and by raising awareness about this important public health issue.” Elder Justice is one of the four main focus areas of the 2015 WHCOA, and Executive Director Nora Super marked the day by speaking at the First World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Global Summit. According to Super, “Every year, millions of older adults around the world experience abuse, neglect, or exploitation. While elder abuse statistics are staggering, behind every number is a mother or father, grandmother or grandfather, husband or wife, neighbor or friend.”

On June 16, WHCOA hosted an Elder Justice Forum. Cecilia Muñoz, Director of the Domestic Policy Council, welcomed advocates, physicians, prosecutors, researchers, government officials and others to the White House to talk about how to best to address and prevent elder abuse and financial exploitation. Participants discussed innovative ideas for strengthening law enforcement and prosecutorial efforts; supporting research and victim services; and preventing and combatting elder financial exploitation.

Free Course on Understanding the Ebola Virus

Hooray! I’m certified in Ebola, or at least, understanding the virus and how to avoid it. ALISON hosts free online courses and launched a very timely course for anyone and everyone to take online. Users must register for the interactive-slide presentation. There will be an assessment to take at the end of the course, and completions will reward you with a certificate of achievement. The language and images were easy to understand and remember, making this excellent for young learners as well as individuals without a medical background.

The Obamacare deadline is today, except when it isn’t

Last chance to sign up for Obamacare ends tonight before open enrollment opens again in October. While the administration is promoting fees and penalties, actual fines may not apply until the month the plan is applied. With the natural tendency for most people to procrastinate, there’s still hope for potential insureds who need more time. Read more here from the Verge here.

Orange County faces biggest measles outbreak in California

9480596_448x252

ABC News reports of the largest Measles outbreak in Southern California this month, and many parents are concerned. The occurrence of a rarely-seen disease prompts many to question the effectiveness of vaccines, preventative care, and the communication plans for notifying the public of an outbreak. Most rely on their doctor visits to stay informed, although these infrequent visits just aren’t enough when an outbreak can spread within days.

How do you stay informed about public health? Are there specific venues you use for reliable health information, or knowledgeable figures in healthcare?
