We're committed to making sure our application is accessible to all people, including people with disabilities. We do this by following Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 through AA conformance (WCAG 2.1, AA).
Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide people with disabilities equal access to electronic information. The WCAG are guidelines that make content more accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, limited movement, speech disabilities, and more.
If you have trouble accessing our content or online services, contact your local benefits office for help. If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech difficulty, dial 7-1-1 to access telecommunications relay services.
