ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Founded in 1927 by Abraham Epstein, the American Association for Social Security (formerly the American Association for Old Age Security) was dedicated to securing state and federal legislation to ensure adequate old age pensions, as well as unemployment and health insurance for American workers.
In 1927, Abraham Epstein organized the American Association for Old Age Security. The Association name was changed in 1933 to the American Association for Social Security and its goals and activities were widened to include unemployment insurance and health insurance.
Epstein was a reformer, editor, writer, scholar and public speaker, as well as the creative force behind the American Association for Social Security, which he directed for fifteen years as executive secretary. Old age pension legislation was the main objective of the Association.
The American Association for Social Security actively participated in the various state old age pension campaigns. For Epstein, this work with state programs was merely a means of bringing enough pressure to bear on Congress to secure federal legislation. The American Association for Social Security also sought reforms in the existing unemployment system and the enactment of a health insurance program.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Consists of Association correspondence with various individuals, societies and organizations, chiefly concerning unemployment insurance, federal social security, national health insurance, old age benefits, state laws and workmen's compensation. Also subject files which consist of published and unpublished materials having to do with health insurance, old age pensions, federal social security and unemployment relief; a card file of legislative histories of social security bills; a social legislation bibliography; copies of legislative bills; newspaper clippings which chiefly concern federal social security programs, social insurance, social security, and the Social Security Board; and miscellaneous related documents.
