The Faces and Facts of Disability (Social Security)

Description:

Social Security touches the lives of nearly every American, often during times of personal hardship, transition, and uncertainty. Our programs serve as vital financial protection for working men and women, children, the disabled, and the elderly.

We administer the largest disability program in the nation. Unfortunately, there are some common misconceptions about our program. We want to ensure that the American public understands this important program and has a clear picture of the individuals living with severe disabilities assisted by our program.

Therefore, I am pleased to announce the launch of our new national communications campaign, The Faces and Facts of Disability. The campaign’s goal is to increase public awareness of the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. The campaign will provide facts about the program and personal stories about those who benefit the most.
