“A bill reintroduced in Congress aims to prevent Social Security beneficiaries from living in poverty. Even as Democratic lawmakers want to raise benefits for the lowest earners, addressing the program’s solvency issues remains a hot button issue in Washington.

If you receive phone calls from unknown numbers / mystery emails saying your Social Security account has been compromised; or your Amazon account has been hacked and a shipment is on its way; or that your power is in danger of being disconnected — do not believe it! Do not return the calls or emails or give out your name or account numbers! Be vigilant and protect yourself from these con games.

Andrew Saul and David Black were appointed by former President Donald Trump to undermine Social Security. They’ve done their very best to carry out that despicable mission. That includes waging a war on people with disabilities, demoralizing the agency’s workforce, and delaying President Biden’s stimulus checks.'”
