I am a lifelong Mainer and a veteran, and I worked as rural mail carrier for decades. But I got injured at work and so I lost my job, and then my house and my vehicle – I was essentially homeless. As an injured senior, I could not get another job. If it hadn’t been for Social Security at that time, I would have had nothing. Social Security made it so I could start to repair my losses.
Social Security works, and we need to strengthen and expand it!
