Social security is “any government system that provides monetary assistance to people with an inadequate or no income.” In the United States, this is usually called welfare or a social safety net, especially when talking about Canada and European countries.

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” – John F. Kennedy

The Social Security system in the U.S. was born on August 14, 1935, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. The first monthly benefits checks became payable on January 1, 1940, and the first person to collect one was Ida M. Fuller, a retired legal secretary in Vermont. Her check was for $22.54.

 

In simple terms, the signatories agree that the society in which a person lives should help them to develop and to make the most of all the advantages (culture, work, social welfare) which are offered to them in the country.

 

Social security may also refer to the action programs of an organization intended to promote the welfare of the population through assistance measures guaranteeing access to sufficient resources for food and shelter and to promote health and well-being for the population at large and potentially vulnerable segments such as children, the elderly, the sick and the unemployed. Services providing social security are often called social services.
