Social-security stories

The Center for Global Policy Solutions seeks volunteers to share their experiences with receiving Social Security benefits as a child or youth. Many Americans are unaware that children and youths receive Social Security as survivors of a parent who has died, dependents of a parent who is disabled and/or dependents of an older adult who is retired. If your household received Social Security benefits when you were young, we need you to share your story to help educate the public about how Social Security affects children, youth and their families. Please note that you will have the option of remaining anonymous if you choose. The stories will be shared as a part of a national report on children, youth and Social Security that will be released this summer.
