Social Security, which was set by the Social Security Act over seven decades ago, involves contributions from American workers into a specific system. The contributions, which are called Federal Insurance Contributions Act, or FICA, taxes, can be taken out by retirees starting from the age of 62, as of 2015. The Social Security Administration, which has its main base in Woodland, MD, also provides disability benefits, spouse benefits and children benefits, which are all subject to specific conditions.
