SSA sets up a Web site that's for women only

The Social Security Administration this month launched a Web feature designed to provide women information on retirement, survivor, disability and supplemental security benefits.

SSA's For Women page, at, is divided into categories for working women, beneficiaries, new mothers, divorced spouses, brides and widows.

'As a group, women live longer than men, earn less and rely on Social Security for most of their retirement income,' said Larry G. Massanari, acting commissioner of Social Security. 'They need to know what the program means to them in their particular circumstances.'

The page also provides links to other sites, such as the Labor Department's Women's Bureau, the Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health, and the White House's Federal Programs and Resources for Women and Families.
