SOCIAL SECURITY HAS A WEB PAGE..
Young people who like to surf the Internet will find an added attraction--Social
Security web pages that explain what the program is all about in terms they can understand.
The new web pages can be found on the Social Security website, "Social Security
On-line" (http://www.ssa.gov). It includes a page for
students in kindergarten through six grade, called "Kids' Stuff;" and a
page for teens in grades seven through 12, called "Hot Questions for Cool Teens."
It also includes a section for parents-"What Every Parent Should Know About
Social Security," and a section for teachers that features a special kit of
materials that can be used to teach Social Security to high school students. Nine
out of 10 children would receive Social Security benefits if a working parent retires,
dies or becomes disabled. Social Security touches the lives of everyone in one way
or another. Every child can expect to have a Social Security card someday and hospitals
are assisting us in making it easier for you to obtain one upon the birth of your
child, free of cost. Knowing what this card means and how the program fits into their
lives now and in the future is an important part of the process of growing up and
taking their place in the world. Teachers and parents are urged to view the new website
as an additional educational resource for students..-
