Review of Social Social.Gov

Social Social.Gov

The U.S. federal government maintains a number of different websites/portals that provide information on the social security disability benefit system. Billed as the official website of the social security administration, Social Security dot gov is one of those portals. The home page for this disability domain covers a wide range of facets.

A visitor to the home page will notice that news regarding recent SSA-related developments can be found (often involving recent cost of living adjustments for social security retirement, social security disability and SSI disability benefit recipients) as well as suggestions for how the site may be utilized (visitors to the site can change their contact information, apply for disability benefits online, and locate the nearest social security office).

However, the site exists mainly to provide assistance and information in the following areas (these areas are in bold text so as to stand out): social security records, medicare, retirement, social security disability and SSI, widows benefits (including widowers), and survivors benefits.
