Plain Writing at the Department of Social Security
Employees of the Social Security Department communicate with beneficiaries and members of the public on a daily basis. Our pledge is therefore to provide the public with the information they need from us.
Commitment To Communicating Clearly
Communication is a large part of our service delivery. Accordingly, Plain Writing necessitates that we communicate clearly and in a way that the public can understand and use. Our commitment is to write in clear, useful and understandable language that the public can grasp on first reading.
Benefits entitlement can sometimes be complex and hard to explain, hence we strive to simplify the language we use in our written communications. We recognise the importance of communicating in a way that is clear and concise. We affirm our commitment and dedication to improving our written materials using plain language.
