The first years of Social Security evaluated.

Three Years' Progress toward Social Security, August 14, 1935-August 14, 1938


In this little pamphlet, the federal government outlines the benefits confered on citizens during the first three years of Social Security. For each of the act's main provisions, it briefly states the risk citizens faced, what would have happened to them before the act passed, how the act protected them, and the numbers of people who were helped.
