The Social Security Act of 35 Roosevelt signed into law by US president Franklin D. Roosevelt is an act to secure the social security system. The act established the Social Security Administration, which is responsible for providing medical, disability and accident Insurance to citizens. The act also established the Federal Old-Age and Safety Insurance Program, otherwise known as social security. The act also established the Social Security Administration, which distributes disability and life insurance benefits.
The Social Security Act established the Old-Age and Safety Insurance programs as well as programs to provide disability insurance. The purpose of this Act was to assure that neither the employer nor the employee provides any person who is unable to assist in their own income or is incapable of performing the work required to bring in that income to participate in the program. The Secretary is authorized and is required to take such action as may be necessary under the provisions of the act to carry out the purposes of the social security act. For each fiscal year beginning with the fiscal year ending July first, there is hereby authorized to be appropriated such sums of money as may be necessary for the payment of claims for Social Security benefits. There are also restrictions placed upon the payments to the claimant for disabilities and Old Age Insurance.
The social security act authorizes the Secretary to issue rules and regulations necessary to carry out the functions of the administration of the social security system under the act. It is mandatory for all agencies under the control of the Secretary to register with the social security office. The social security office is administered under the Department of Health and is headed by a principal nurse. A General Counsel is also appointed to administer the affairs of the social security system. All civil laws applicable to the administration of social security and the Department of Labor that affect the employees of the social security department are incorporated into the social security laws of the United States
The administrative procedures prescribed by the act are generally known as the administrative code of the act. The social security administrative code is updated from time to time in order to assure consistency. Therefore the reference to an administrative code of the act is used whenever the word 'act' is used in the context of the provision of the law. Every rule and regulation contained herein is referred to as an 'earliest regulation'. The words 'legislative act' and 'law' are also used in such a provision of the law in order to qualify it as an 'act'.
Under the administrative procedures act, every citizen has the right to access his records at any time whatsoever. The procedure for accessing the records is known as 'rights of access', and the right is generally considered as a right protected by the constitution. The rights of access to the records can be exercised by a person on his own volition, subject to any legal impediments, and on demand by any agency acting in the interest of the citizen. . . . . . . The procedures for requesting the information also vary from one state to another. This ensures that the people have the right to know if their privacy rights were infringed in any case.
Under the administrative procedures act, people have the right to challenge any aspect of the procedure involved in accessing their records. This right is known as 'concurrability'. The right to challenge is not automatic; however, when the challenge is successful, the administrative procedures shall be revised accordingly. All the important issues that arise in the case of any court cases regarding the Social Security or other public records should be decided in a systematic manner. The general procedures laid down by the act should ensure that all the people involved in whatever action have their rights preserved.
