Social Security Administration

The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) manages the United States' social insurance program, consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings; future benefits are based on the employees' contributions.
