Social Security / MedicareThe Great Depression of the 1930s dramatized the fact that many American workers were dependent financially on factors beyond their control. The Social Security Act, signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1935, helped to change this situation. In the following years, Social Security was broadened to include survivors benefits, disability benefits and health care (Medicare) benefits.
Our Social Security system has been a basic part of American life for more than 60 years. It has changed frequently over the years to meet new needs of workers and of beneficiaries. It will undoubtedly change in the future to meet the needs of the next century benefactors.
