The following video message from Secretary Donovan provides more information about the Affordable Care Act and its importance to the people HUD serves, HUD employees, and friends and family.

Helping the more than 48 million Americans who are currently uninsured has been a priority for President Obama. Many of those uninsured individuals are low-income Americans that rely on HUD services; that is why HUD committed to our mission of building strong and healthy communities across the country and promoting information about the Affordable Care Act with the people we serve.

The Affordable Care Act that President Obama signed into law in 2010 has – and will continue to go a long way in helping us achieve this mission and will benefit working families gain access to quality care, while strengthening their financial future.

Let’s all do our part to help build healthy communities, and share information with others and urge them to enroll at healthcare.gov – or by calling a hotline that is available in more than 140 languages at 1-800-318-2596.

The Social Security Administration has informed us of the changes that are currently set to take place in 2014:

Beginning August 2014 Social Security field offices will no longer issue social security printouts.

Individuals who need proof of their Social Security number and cannot find their card will need to apply for a replacement card

Beginning October 2014, field offices will stop providing benefit verification letters, except in emergency situations. Benefit verifications are available on line and can be obtained anytime by registering for a my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount or requested through their national toll free number 1 (800) 772 1213.

Our resident center has computers available for all B.H.A. residents to use and a resident coordinator on site that will assist everyone. Public libraries also offer computers for non-residents of B.H.A.
