Plain Language

The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires federal agencies to communicate clearly.

We commit to write content that is easy to read and understand.

What federal law requires of us

We must use plain language so you can understand:

  • Our benefits and services and how to get them
  • How to file taxes when you receive our benefits or services
  • How to comply with our requirements

We structure our content to help you use our website.

How to report an issue

Email us if you don't understand a document or content on our website.
