DIVORCE & FAMILY LAW
Social Security is a government program to provide financial support for the elderly or disabled. Over the course of your life, you pay a certain percentage of your income to the government in the form of social security taxes. After you retire or become disabled, the government sends you monthly payments based on how much you paid in social security taxes.
