It was 1935 when FDR signed the Social Security Act: [FDR speaking] It seems to me that if the Senate and the House of Representatives had done nothing more than pass this Social Security Act, the session would be regarded as historic for all time. And historic it was. But from the beginning, Social Security was never meant to be the sole source of retirement income. [FDR speaking] We have tried to frame a law which will give some measure of protection to the average citizen and to his family against poverty-stricken old age. Like the man said, Social Security would provide some help; the rest was up to us. Ida Mae Fuller knew that, she received the first monthly Social Security check for $22.54. Good thing she had other savings, because she lived to be 100 years old. Here's hoping we can all afford to live as long as Ida. Choose to Save because that's the way it is.
