When Girls Succeed, So Does Society At the youngest ages, girls face both personal and societal obstacles that keep them from reaching their full potential. The ability of Girl Scouts, the leading expert on girls, to provide those fun and enriching experiences is more important than ever. Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is here to lead southern Alabama’s girls into the future. The Girl Scout Research Institute’s “State of the Girl” details realities for many girls in Alabama. Girls in Alabama ranked 30th in terms of overall well-being. Girls ranked 21st in terms of emotional health, 33rd in physical health and safety, 34th in economic well-being, and 42nd in education. The report also notes that roughly 26 percent of school age girls in the state are currently living in poverty and around 8 percent of girls, ages 6 to 17, have experienced some form of neighborhood violence. These numbers leave much room for improvement. This report is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on girls, which allows Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama to direct its efforts of bettering their lives. With programs focusing in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), financial literacy, healthy eating and exercise, and reading readiness, the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama has a positive impact on every girl we come into contact with. However, with decreases in funding and a lack of volunteers, our ability to serve girls is in serious jeopardy. Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama has the tools it takes to instill leadership skills into the girls of our future, but volunteers are desperately needed to put these tools to use. Adult volunteers are vital for the survival of Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama in continuing the mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. For more information on how to volunteer or become Girl Scout contact Jennifer Thrash, Director of Membership Development, at 800-239-6636 or email@example.com.

Social Security Launches New Expedited Disability Process for Veterans Fast-tracking Disability Decisions for Vets with 100% Permanentand Total Rating Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, recently announced the launch of a new disability process to expedite disability claims filed by veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation rating of 100% Permanent & Total (P&T). Under the new process, Social Security will treat these veterans’ applications as high priority and issue expedited decisions, similar to the way the agency currently handles disability claims from Wounded Warriors.“We have reached another milestone for those who have sacrificed so much for our country and this process ensures they will get the benefits they need quickly,” said Acting Commissioner Colvin. “While we can never fully repay them for their sacrifices, we can be sure we provide them with the quality of service that they deserve. This initiative is truly a lifeline for those who need it most.”“No one wants to put America’s veterans through a bureaucratic runaround,” said Maryland Congressman John Sarbanes, a leading proponent for increasing assistance to veterans. “As the baby boomer generation ages and more veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan need care, this common sense change will help reduce backlogs and cut through unnecessary red tape so that our most disabled veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned.” In order to receive the expedited service, veterans must tell Social Security they have a VA disability compensation rating of 100% P&T and show proof of their disability rating with their VA Notification Letter.The VA rating only expedites Social Security disability claims processing and does not guarantee an approval for Social Security disability benefits. These veterans must still meet the strict eligibility requirements for a disability allowance.For information about this service, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/pgm/disability-pt.htm.
