A federal agency in the United States called the Social Security Administration is in charge of managing social programs.
The SSA manages the SSI program for the elderly, blind, and disabled, issues Social Security numbers to American citizens and keeps records of earnings for workers who use their Social Security numbers.
Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1946 (5 U.S.C. app.) created the Social Security Administration (SSA), which went into operation on July 16, 1946.
The SSA offers a wide range of services, including signing up for Medicare parts A and B, in addition to managing the programs for retirement and disability benefits and managing SSI.
