Social Security

Social Security is a  federal insurance program that provides benefits to retired persons, the unemployed, and the disabled through public funds.

Social Security benefits include retirement income, disability income, Medicare and Medicaid, and death and survivorship benefits. Social Security is created by having today’s workers pay Social Security taxes into the program and having money flow back out as monthly income to beneficiaries.
