You’ve probably been on the web, and it’s likely that you’ve attended a seminar. But have you ever attended a “webinar?” We recommend that you do.

Social Security offers a selection of webinars at You’re invited to attend any of them, anytime. Class is always in session – past webinars are available for you to view at any time. The information can be valuable, but the cost is free.

There are webinars on benefits for wounded warriors, applying for retirement online, extra help with Medicare prescription drug costs, and more.

The two recent webinars on the page are on timely topics.

• How Some Public Employee or Teacher Pensions May Affect Social Security Benefits. In this webinar, we walk you through how the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO) may affect Social Security benefits of workers whose employers do not withhold Social Security taxes from their salary, such as some school systems and some local, State and Federal government agencies.

• Ticket to Work. Do you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits? Thousands of SSI and SSDI beneficiaries have learned how to stay in control of their benefits while enriching their lives through employment. You can join them by participating in a 90-minute Work Incentive Seminar Event (WISE) Webinar to learn about available incentives, including those offered through the Ticket to Work program.

If you visit, you’ll find all of the webinars instantly accessible. Any upcoming webinars will be at the top of the page with information on the date, time, and how to register to participate in the webinar live. Once the webinar has taken place, it will be available for anyone to revisit as a resource.
