Social Security Faith Week of Action invites faith-based and community groups across the country to help us spread the word about our programs and services. This year’s theme is “Shining a Light on Your Lifetime Protections.”

You can take part by downloading our toolkit to help you plan and promote a Social Security awareness event in your community. Your event will highlight America’s most successful poverty prevention program and encourage participants to create their own my Social Security online account. This is an important tool for financial planning.

Social Security Faith Week of Action is also a great time to spread the word about myRA— an exciting new retirement savings alternative for workers who don’t have a retirement plan through an employer or lack other options to save.

On average, Social Security retirement benefits replace 40 percent of workers’ earnings. Yet over a THIRD of the nation’s workers have NO SAVINGS set aside specifically for retirement! This campaign will provide your members with knowledge that could change their lives for the better and set them on a sound financial course.

Let’s get started! After reviewing the toolkit, be sure to complete our Statement of Interest. The contact information you provide through the Statement of Interest allows us to update you on our national outreach efforts and invite you to participate in national conference calls.
