Take Action: LB 932 provides transparency for youth in care receiving Social Security

Young people navigating the child welfare system should have a solid chance at success.

The State of Nebraska should be transparent and held accountable. This is why we are testifying in support of Legislative Bill (LB) 932, which provides necessary and long overdue protections, notification, access, and opportunities to save foster youths’ Social Security benefits.
