Victor McWilliams, a leader of Jane Addams, relies on Social Security for everyday expenses that allow him to live a dignified life.
“I don’t survive anymore I live,” Victor said.
Victor knows Social Security is threatened with cuts, and he does not want to lose any of his Social Security. His benefits were cut once, and he strongly considered moving to a homeless shelter because he was not sure he was able to afford rent.
Victor believes Social Security should be expanded for the growing senior population, and future retirees. Victor also believes in scrapping the cap.
“The rich need to pay into Social Security,” Victor said.
