Social Security is part of life

Social Security is part of almost everyone’s life. In one way or another- -whether assigning a Social Security number to a newborn infant or mailing a Social Security check to a retired worker – – Social Security touches the lives of more Americans than any other federal program. Social Security provides protection to more than 141 million workers and pays benefits to 43 million people.
