We have Unemployment Insurance (which is very limited and usually doesn't come close to a realistic livable wage, it's more a bandaid to help till you find work .. it's between $80 - 450 a week depending on how much taxable income you had in the 18 month period prior to applying, and then it lasts i think either 12 or 24 weeks depending on stuff I'm not sure about, and is heavily under state determination too so it can be different state to state).

Social Security is an insurance fund we all have for retirement, basically you're eligible to start collecting when you turn 65 (i think that's right, retirement age), and your amount is based on how much taxable income you made in your life, above a base amount i think every citizen is eligible for (i think?). (good luck if you were a stay at home parent or part time worker for any notable stretch of your "working" years)

PS It is not even a guarantee that after decades of paying into SS (if you live long enough to collect even, which obviously MANY people do not) that you'll get it... certain politicians are always trying to dismantle the program.
