Emma and Noah are again America’s most popular baby names, for the third year in a row. This marks the fourth year at number one for Noah and the third for Emma. There is only one new name in the top 10 this year—Elijah, the first time he has ever reached the list of 10. Like a name, Social Security is with you through life’s journey, starting at birth when newborns receive their Social Security number.
Speaking before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging today, social work professor Lenard W. Kaye, DSW, PhD, urged lawmakers to support programs that help older adults stay connected to their communities. Kaye is a fellow of The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and serves as director of the University of Maine Center on Aging. Joining three other experts at a hearing titled “Aging Without Community: The Consequences of Isolation and Loneliness,” he reported to the committee that social isolation is a silent killer — due to placing people at higher risk for a variety of poor health outcomes — and he warned that more Americans are living in isolation than ever before.
One of the greatest gifts you can give a grandchild is the gift of financial literacy. Helping them save money early in life and showing them how to make wise spending decisions goes a long way toward a bright financial future. As they get older, they may want to save for special purchases or their college education. You can encourage them when they get their first job to begin saving for the future, including their retirement.
Social Security is here for you when you’re traveling, whether it’s just a state away or when you’re abroad. When you open a personal and secure my Social Security account, you can access it on your terms. We put you in control of your finances and your future. 
On Memorial Day, we honor the soldiers and service members who have given their lives for our nation. Social Security respects the heroism and courage of our military service members, and we remember those who have given their lives in defense of freedom. Part of how we honor service members is the way we provide Social Security benefits.
