Marietta, GA — On Wednesday, Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta) convened a webinar with representatives from the Social Security Administration (SSA) to inform constituents of the changes SSA has made in response to the pandemic and how beneficiaries can continue accessing their benefits remotely.

“It is so important that our constituents continue to access critical benefits like Social Security during this pandemic,” McBath said. “I’m grateful that members of our community can use technology to securely manage their benefits through the SSA, and I thank our guests for lending their expertise to this event and for all the work they are doing to continue serving Social Security beneficiaries during these uncertain times.”

During the event, participants asked Rep. McBath and SSA experts questions, including about how to access Social Security benefits online and over the phone. Attendees were also reminded about common fraud prevention techniques to protect their personal information. A list of fraud prevention tips and how to report suspected fraud can be found on the Social Security website.
