Social Security Laws

Social Security is designed to provide security for individuals from unforeseen casualties. In the U.S., Social Security laws were enacted in 1935 to provide survivors, old age and disability insurance benefits to workers and their families. Social security benefits are paid to an individual or his or her family at least in part on the basis of that person's employment record and prior contributions to the system through social security taxes.

The program is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Over time, social security has also included health insurance benefits under the Medicare program. While the original social security laws used Social Security in a broad sense and included federally funded welfare programs and unemployment compensation within its scope, the use of the phrase social security associates with survivors, old age and with disability insurance.

The Federal Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program gives out monthly benefits to retired people, to families whose breadwinner has died, and to unemployed due to sickness or accident. Workers also qualify for its protection by having been employed for a minimum amount of time and by paying social security taxes. Once an individual has qualified for protection, other family members can also benefit as well.

While the current social security laws govern an applicant's right to benefits, state substantive law governs some of the family relationship issues that may bear on that right such as the validity of a marriage.
