 SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION http://www.ssa.gov

The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors' benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings; future benefits are based on the employees' contributions. The Social Security Administration was established by a law currently codified at 42 U.S.C. § 901. Its commissioner, Michael J. Astrue, was sworn in on February 12, 2007 for a six-year term. SSA is headquartered in Woodlawn, Maryland, just to the west of Baltimore, at what is known as Central Office. The agency includes 10 regional offices, 8 processing centers, approximately 1300 field offices, and 37 Teleservice Centers. As of 2007, about 62,000 people were employed by the SSA. Social Security is currently the largest social welfare program in the U.S., constituting 37% of government expenditure and 7% of GDP. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Federal government agencies are required by law to maintain a certain percentage of contracts with minority suppliers.
