March is Women’s History Month, and the Social Security Administration is taking the time to address women’s needs with social security. Nearly 60% of those who receive social security benefits are women, and the SSA has a number of programs on their website designed to help everyone receiving benefits, including women, to better plan their retirement.
Jack Myers, Public Affairs Specialist with the Social Security Administration appeared on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, and wanted to highlight Women’s History Month for several reasons. These include the contributions women have made throughout history, as well as how the majority of those receiving social security benefits are women.
Myers pointed out how today more women than ever are working and paying into social security. The SSA website has a variety of tools to help those better plan their retirement.
Myers encouraged younger workers to get involved and to take advantage of the tools on the SSA website to better plan for their retirement.
