Social Security Administration
NAHU's state and local chapters have asked the national office to help them provide educational content to their members. Through the Social Security Administration, we can now offer:
- Trained SSA speakers from across the country for state/local/regional conferences.
- An SSA educational project that will allow members to access online services and learn how consumers can request their Social Security Statements and replace their Medicare Card online.
- NAHU members, as a service to their clients, can not only educate consumers but also send informational pamphlets such as an information packet called "How to Apply for SSI Disability benefits for a Child." When serious illness strikes a family, clients will often call their health insurance agent to notify them and to get information regarding benefits. In these instances, agents can send the information packet "How to Apply for SSI Disability benefits for a Child." This packet provides information and criteria for obtaining additional benefits for children. An initial shipment of 50 packets can be sent to each member. NAHU will then provide additional pamphlets upon request.
- Social Security will send NAHU regular updates of their Organization website. The Organization website is designed to provide organizations with written articles for use in their local newsletters, magazines and other publications. This would give NAHU chapters a constant flow of new information that can be of benefit to members and their clients.
If chapters are interested in obtaining a speaker from the SSA regional office, please contact your agency liaison,
