Roosevelt signed into law the “Social Security Act.” This law created “a system of Federal old-age benefits” for workers and their families. In 1956, the law was amended to also provide disability benefits.[3] [4] * Social Security is composed of two separate entities: The “Old-Age and Survivors Insurance” program and the “Disability Insurance” program.
