Silsbee Elementary teacher Gini Barton had recently taken up running as a hobby of sorts, but it was just recently that she mulled the idea to take it a step further. “I had never run before, but it was something that I started to help teach my own children with the lessons that winning doesn’t always matter,” she said. “It was a way to show my son that finishing a race, no matter what place, is what matters the most.”

Social Security created as a system of old age benefits

In 1935, Congress passed and Democratic President Franklin D. 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. Each program has separate finances handled through two separate trust funds. For the purpose of simplicity, the figures shown below reflect the combination of both programs unless otherwise stated.
