Access Social Security’s educator tool kit


With so many students gone for the summer, teachers may now have time to prepare a different kind of lesson plan. Help students prepare a better future for themselves with practical knowledge about financial planning. Let young people know the younger they start saving, the easier it will be to reach their goals.

Let us introduce you to the Social Security Educator Toolkit. This is a rich resource for teachers and advocates. Our Information for Educators page contains a toolkit with information and resources to educate and engage students on Social Security. It includes:

>> Two lesson plans with objectives;

>> Infographics and handouts for each lesson plan;

>> Links to Social Security webpages;

>> Talking points; and

>> Quiz questions and answers.

It’s important for students to understand why Social Security was created and why it is essential to their lives today and in the future. This knowledge and understanding will provide students a strong base on which to build their financial future.
