November is National Blog Posting Month, which means there’s never been a better time to join the conversation with Social Security.

We recently launched our new blog, Social Security Matters. The blog is our interactive center for engaging with you by answering questions and concerns in a way that benefits all readers and contributors. Social Security Matters also lets you provide meaningful feedback that can help us serve you more effectively.

The blog’s comment section allows you to voice your thoughts and ask questions. The conversation is growing every day. We’re doing our best to serve you, and a big part of that is listening to what you have to say.

Think of Social Security Matters as a dashboard for the latest news and updates that affect our beneficiaries. These beneficiaries include those of our retirement, survivors and disability programs. Veterans, the chronically ill and anyone entitled to our broad range of services can also benefit from the news and updates.

Social Security Matters is easy-to-navigate and user-friendly — tags categorize the topics you care about into organized sections. Our blog joins our presence on Facebook and Twitter to ensure that you’ll always find the information and online resources you’re looking for.

Blog posts aren’t a one-way conversation. We’d like you to share the items that interest you. Using your preferred social media, Social Security Matters lets you share our posts with a click of a button. In addition, you can subscribe to our blog and get Social Security news as it happens. Simply select the blue button titled “Get blog updates.”

We’re updating our blog every week, and not just during National Blog Posting Month. Come see what we, and our satisfied customers, have to say. Visit Social Security Matters today at blog.socialsecurity.gov.
