Social Security Act (1935)
By: Giselle Martinez
Wondering about the Social Security Act?
The Social Security Act was intended to help the disabled, unemployed, and Americans that are over the age of 65. Now, the Social Security program was intended to guarantee these people a monthly check. This program was a huge relief for the people, because it let all Americans with these poor conditions to start building themselves. For example it helps America, because there would be less homeless people, and the disabled and elderly wouldn't have to be worried about where they're going to live or how to find their next meal.
