Social Security Public Affairs Specialist

People who use social networking Web sites know that it can be exciting to reconnect with long lost friends and relatives over the Internet.

Such surprise connections can be fun and conjure up memories of times forgotten. But what if you have a more serious situation and you need to locate a particular person? Perhaps Social Security can help.

Social Security is in the business of paying benefits, not reconnecting people. But, in some cases, we will do what we can to help. We will attempt to forward a letter to a missing person under circumstances involving a matter of great importance, such as a death or serious illness in the missing person’s immediate family, or a sizeable amount of money that is due the missing person.

As the summer wedding season comes into full bloom, movie lovers have named the movies and celebrities most likely to inspire their own nuptials in a survey on blockbuster.com.

Topping their selections are Jane and Kevin’s beach wedding in “27 Dresses” for Favorite Movie Wedding Look, Reese Witherspoon in “Sweet Home Alabama” as Most Beautiful Movie Bride and Matthew McConaughey in “The Wedding Planner” as Most Gorgeous Groom.

Participants in the survey, conducted in June at blockbuster.com, were asked to name which movie wedding look they would most like for their own (plot not included). Close behind top pick “27 Dresses” were Melanie and Andrew’s garden nuptials in “Sweet Home Alabama” and Gloria and Jeremy’s big church wedding in “Wedding Crashers.” Other approaches that had smaller followings were Mary and Massimo’s courthouse ceremony in “The Wedding Planner” and Aditi and Hemant’s elaborate ceremonies in India in “Monsoon Wedding.”
