Background
Section 104(f) of the Social Security Amendments of 1956 authorized Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington to extend Social Security coverage to nonprofessional school employees in positions under a retirement system without a referendum and as a separate absolute coverage group. Nonprofessional school employees are employees of public school districts in the specified States, in positions that did not require a valid State teacher's or administrator's certificate, as a prerequisite of payment for their services. Modifications covering nonprofessional school employee positions under the Section 104(f) provisions were filed with the Social Security Administration only between August 1, 1956, and December 31, 1961.
