Since dawn's light first shone upon the cave man, he in his crude way, searched for security for himself and others who lived in his cave. While technological progress had revolutionized the method of seeking ways to make such provisions, the desire for the same has continued as the ultimate goal of the head of the family unit .
Summary - With the growing development of benefit plans in private industry spurred on by federal legislation and the government's progressive interest in social welfare, indications are for further growth in this area. There has been a definite trend as seen by the government's providing social security benefits at retirement through an additional tax on persons while they are actively engaged and the provision of group life insurance on federal employees. In addition, Congress passed a law in 1959 to provide accident and health benefits for government employees. Also there ls proposed legislation now pending to provide medical care for old age recipients of social security. More legislation can be expected to be forthcoming. In summary, we have cone a long way since dawn's light first shone upon the cave man as he, in his crude way, searched for security for himself and others who lived in his cave and depended upon him.
