In an effort to better promote many of the new services offered to those who are retired or disabled, the Social Security Administration (SSA) released a series of Public Service Announcements.
The series of 30-second television commercials feature Patty Duke and George Takei and are posted to the SSA’s YouTube page. Most of the ads are done as a spoof to the television program, with each of the commercials discussing new Social Security features, including electronic deposits and online services. Others give applicants a step-by-step process to file for disability benefits through an online portal.
The ads are being done as a fun and exciting way to get the public interested in and using these new services. Spreading this message is especially important, considering those who are most likely to utilize Social Security Disability Benefits are also among a demographic of individuals who tend to be less informed about technological advancements.
The Social Security Disability Attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin understand how confusing changes to the Social Security process can be. That is why the firm suggests discussing your case with a qualified attorney if you are considering filing a claim for benefits or have a claim that has been denied in the past.
