Social Security: What's in it for You?

Updated: June 7, 2013

Collage of young workers and college studentsToday, we are proud to announce the newly revised version of this webinar for 2013! Social Security hosted a webinar for college students and young workers, called “Social Security 101: What’s in it for me?” that originally aired on March 10th, 2011. Participants learned answers to questions like “what’s that FICA tax that comes out of my paycheck?,” “how can Social Security help me at my age?” and “why should I worry about planning for retirement now?” Following the presentation, the audience had an opportunity to pose additional questions during an interactive session.
