The Social Security Program in the United States

Excerpt

Social security programs in the United States have grown so rapidly that in spite of the numerous publications relating to social security programs, there is still a lack of knowledge on the part of many about their essential features.

This book, therefore, has been written primarily for the person interested in obtaining a brief overview of the social security program. It is not intended to be an analysis of the many issues around social security measures.

I wish to acknowledge the helpfulness of many friends and associates who reviewed and commented on the final manuscript. I am particularly grateful to Robert J. Myers, Chief Actuary of the Social Security Administration, United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, for reviewing a substantial number of the chapters, particularly those relating to old-age, survivors, and disability insurance; to Charles E. Hawkins, Legislative Reference Officer in the Office of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, for his review of the chapter on public assistance; to Roger Cumming, Director of Social Work Services, Veterans Administration, for his review of the chapter relating to veterans' benefits; to Robert M. Ball, Commissioner of Social Security, who reviewed an early draft; to members of the staff of the Social Security Administration, who reviewed the material in several chapters, and particularly to Elizabeth G. Sanders and other staff of the Division of Program Analysis of the Social Security Administration, who commented on many of the chapters; to Robert C. Goodwin, Director of the Bureau of Employment Security, United States Department of Labor, who reviewed the chapter on Unemployment Insurance; to Andrew R. N. Truelson, Assistant Director of the Bureau of Family Services of the Welfare Administration of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, and staff of the Bureau who reviewed the chapters on Public Assistance and General Assistance; and, finally, to my wife, Edna L. Schottland, who typed the first draft of the manuscript and encouraged me to undertake the book in the first place.
