HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOCIAL SECURITY

On this day in 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act, which was originally designed to provide economic security during the Great Depression. Funded through a 2% payroll tax, the 1935 Social Security Act offered aid for the unemployed, the elderly, children and various state health and welfare programs.



Thank you Mr. President.

  2. I'm thankful for this for sure! Probably if it had been up to me to save this money on my own for my retirement, it wouldn't have happened.
