Social Security Program

Posted on:2/11/2013
The term "Social Security" first appeared prominently in the United States Social Security Act. Its use spread rapidly throughout the world and the mention of social security in the Atlantic Charter of 1941 gave it further impetus.

In some countries the term "Social Security" covers all governmental programs aimed at achieving the maintenance of income; in others it applies primarily to social insurance; in others it covers a variety of health and welfare services. Even within the United States the term is used in a number of ways.


Although most persons identify social security with old-age, survivors, and disability insurance, "social security" in the United States covers a variety of programs including social insurance programs providing cash benefits for unemployment (unemployment insurance), cash benefits in old age, for disability or death (old-age, survivors, and disability insurance), cash payments to persons in need (public assistance or relief), and a variety of health and welfare services under the Social Security Act.


The major programs of social security involve some type of cash payment to assure at least a minimum income. These programs are large and significant. The sums paid out in benefits under these various social security programs constitute an annual expenditure which exceed the total national budgets of many countries.


The social security program in the United States is administered by the Social Security Administration which employees more than 50,000 employees. Applicants whose applications are denied by the Social Security Administration can appeal against the denial by filing an appeal in a court of law.
