PREFACE

The Social Security Act

The Social Security Act was enacted August 14, 1935. Since then it has been amended on a number of occasions. Some of the laws amending the original Act have made rather extensive and significant changes. A listing of all the laws which have amended the Social Security Act can be found in the Appendix. Administration of the Social Security Act

The Social Security Board was responsible for administration of the original Social Security Act except for parts 1, 2, 3, and 5 of title V (which were administered by the Children's Bureau, then in the Department of Labor); part 4 of title V which increased the appropriations authorized for carrying out the Act of June 2, 1920 (now the Vocational Rehabilitation Act); and title VI which authorized grants to the States for public health work. .

The Social Security Board was transferred to the Federal Security Agency by Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1939 and the Board's functions were thenceforth to be carried on under the direction and supervision of the Federal Security Administrator. Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1946, transferred the functions of the Social Security Board, as well as the functions of the Children's Bureau and the functions of the Secretary of Labor under title V of the Social Security Act, to the Federal Security Administrator and the Board was abolished.

The Bureau of Employment Security, with its unemployment compensation and employment service functions, was transferred from the Federal Security Agency to the Department of Labor by Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1949.

The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare was established by Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953 with a Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare as the head of the Department. All functions of the Federal Security Agency, which was abolished, were transferred to the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The functions of the Federal Security Administrator were transferred to the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. The Compilation of the Social Security Laws
