Well since I am about to turn 50 I decided to get on the Social Security Administration website and check out what I can expect in the coming years. http://www.socialsecurity.gov offers quite a bit in showing you the benefits you either have or will have in the future. You can create “My Social Security” check out Retirement and even read tiblets on how to plan and save in the future. Really great site and very private. If you don’t get your password right it will kick you out after three tries. Good plus is security. The history of Social Security is interesting since it was started at a most depressing time, The Depression.

  The Social Security Administration (SSA) began life as the Social Security Board (SSB). The SSB was created at the moment President Roosevelt inked his signature on the Social Security Act (August 14, 1935 at 3:30 p.m.). It later revamped and started moreso in 1946


On 7/16/46 the SSB was renamed the Social Security Administration under the President’s Reorganization Plan of 1946. Arthur Altmeyer, who had been chairman of the Board of the SSB, became SSA’s first Commissioner

.SSA has definitely started a long timeline for Social Security which has had its ups and downs but has continued to benefit the lives of so many people, from disabled to young to old, all ages are able to use and received services from this valuable service…

So check out http://www.socialsecurity.gov  and learn all that it has to offer US…
