Social security law involves the intricacies of the American public benefits system that provides social security income. Social security is funded by taxes you pay when you are working. Once you stop working and meet the eligibility requirements, you receive monthly benefits.

There are many social security laws and policies to determine eligibility, benefit amounts, and benefit duration.
