 your wage account

This poster from the period 1937-1939 explains how wage records are kept for Social Security purposes, as this was an area of public concern in the early days of Social Security. Note also that the forms show the geographical breakdown of the 9-digit account number. This breakdown was done to facilitate bookkeeping procedures as can be seen from the facsimile forms reproduced on the poster. SSA History Archives.
