On August 14, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act, creating the Social Security Board. The agency got a name change to the Social Security Administration with the Reorganization Plan of 1946, establishing four program bureaus in 1965, This included a Disability Insurance program, established Supplemental Security Income or SSI in 1973 and became a fully independent agency in 1995.
