The federal government uses cartoons to explain Social Security.

What's in a number?

The inside pages of this little pamphlet fold in and out, accordion-style. Viewing its frames in order, the reader learns how the employer and the employee jointly make the Social Security system effective. To see the small print in the cartoons, position the cursor and click one or twice to zoom in.
