  1. social security tells me because i saved a little money during my working years i am not entitled to some SS benefits. That tells me that if you .work hard don’t spend every cent you ever get ,try to live responsively , save a little. You are not eligible for expanded SS benefits.Well if i had known that,i could have had a gay old time too,but no I had to do the right thing.Well shuky darn.I’ll know better in my next life

    • Social Security could care less how much you save, it does not effect your benefits. It does effect SSI which is a welfare payment. If that is what your getting then you did not work much and hence could not have saved much.

      • GRRRR AKA you are one of the RUDEST posters on here. btw it is Affect and not effect. Now don’t you have something more constructive to do? Maybe look up in the dictionary the difference between affect and effect? Try a little kindness…it might change your life.

        • Chris, AKA’s spelling does NOT change the truth of that post. Let me rephrase that: Social Security, including its disability component (SSDI), is not AFFECTed by your savings; that only affects SSI, not SSDI. Perhaps YOU should do something more constructive than dismiss truthful statements over spelling. This is NOT the National Spelling Bee!

  2. THANK YOU MR JIM I SO HAPPY FOR UNDERSTANDING ABOUT WORKING MOMS IN THIS COUNTRY.I AM A HARD WORKER I WORK LIKE HHA FOR MY AGENCY.I PAY ALL THE HOUSEHOLD BILLS BY MY SERLF SINCE MY HUSBAND SSI CHECK IS STOP ON MARCH 01 2017 I AM
    62 YEARS OLD MY IS 63 YEARS OLD DISABLE I COME IN THIS COUNTRY WITH LATE AGES 56 YEARS OLD.THANKS.

  3. What if you did not have children because you couldn’t but now need disability assistance, financial assistance, housing, health insurance , and food stamps. I see people using their SNNAP food cards in grocery stores and then getting in a Lexus or BMW. Well, I had to sell my car just to get some money to live on. I have $149.07 in my checking and saving accounts combined. No stock, no bonds, etc.
    I have been diagnosed with agoraphobia, severe depression, panic disorder, panic attacks, bipolar, and am a cutter (on my arms) since 2015…in 2015 I was diagnosed with stage2/3 breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. Now, I have to have a full hystrogermy since I can not tolerate the breast cancer medication and cervical cancer (my Mom had the same operation but because she did have cervical cancer and breast cancer and the same type of cancer….mine is cause by estrogen. I have all my upper disk in my neck bone on bone, with multiple bone spurs and will likely have an operation for that because the disks are pinching my nerves and my hands and arm go numb and are very painful. During those times, I can not use my hands and arms (both sides) and it can take up to an hour or more to work them out. Yet I can’t get any help because I do not have children. Where is the fairness when you try to do the right thing? I have worked an a self-contain Special Education Teacher for students with Autism (high school and elementary) for the last 13/14 years. I do not under stand why I can not get assistance. Any suggestions? I would appreciate the help!!!!

  4. HI ADELE I AM SORRY. IN GOD YOU NEED TO
    TRUST AND HE CAN HELP YOU MY FRIEND.MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND BE WITH MY FRIEND.I LOVE YOU

  5. Thanks for sharing the stats on Motherhood and how much we do for our families. Please keep posting true data. Stand tall women and whenever possible speak up!

  6. Please Moms and Wives… you have to look out for yourself!! Do not put your future in anyone else’s hands.

    God gave you a BRAIN for a reason–use it.
    The work you’ve done raising a family i is MUCH HARDER than any corporate job OR planning your financial future.
    If you put that in your husbands hands and “hope for the best” you could be eating dog food for dinner every night when you retire.
    TAKE THE TIME NOW TO PLAN FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE– Ill bet you will be better at it than your husband.

    Married once, for 28 years, now separated and looking forward to divorce from an ABUSIVE SPOUSE.
