Social Security Online


News Release


Recognizing the need for American Indians and Alaska Natives to access timely, accurate information about Social Security, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has launched a new web page -- -- Social Security Online for American Indian and Alaska Natives. The site provides basic Social Security program information on retirement, survivors, disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits.

"The Social Security Administration serves a diverse population," said Jo Anne Barnhart, Commissioner of Social Security. "The agency will continue to develop and implement innovative technology that improves the services we deliver to the public."

In addition to program information, this new site shows how individuals can conduct business with SSA Online and information on how individuals and tribes or nations can contact SSA. American Indian and Alaska Natives also offers links to the Department of Health and Human Servicesí Administration on Native Americans and Indian Health Service; the Small Business Administration, Native American Affairs; the Department of Veterans Affairs, Center for Minority Veterans; and Native Web.
