SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION UPDATES
Beginning August 2014, SSA will no longer issue Social Security number printouts in their field offices. 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 online, and can be obtained anytime by registering for a my Social Security account at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount/ or by calling 800 772 1213.

KNOW YOUR GOVERNMENT
A power that the House of Representatives has that the Senate does NOT is the power to
a) try impeached government officials
b) approve proposed treaties
c) introduce bills about revenue
d) confirm presidential appointments
c) The House of Representatives has the power to introduce bills that are about revenue (such as tax bills). This is the only option that correctly identifies a power the House of Representatives has that the Senate does not. The House of Representatives has the power to impeach, but it does not have the power to try officials who have been impeached (that power belongs to the Senate). So, option A can be eliminated. The Senate, not the House of Representatives, approves treaties and confirms (or chooses not to confirm) presidential appointments; so option D can be eliminated.
