Today is the birthday of Social Security? The Social Security Act was approved by Congress and signed by President Roosevelt on August 14, 1935. The Act created unemployment insurance and pension plans for the elderly.
“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
Will SS be there for the next generation of elderly?
