Social Security Works for Marilyn Watkins

Via Social Security Works Washington

“When the thing I never thought could happen to me did happen, Social Security was there. We were able to keep our house, and the tragedy of my husband’s death was not compounded by a period of instability where my sons would have had to suffer even more.”

Marilyn’s husband died suddenly, leaving her to raise their two sons. Social Security survivor benefits kicked in immediately, giving Marilyn the ability to raise her two boys without the fear of falling backward into poverty. Those benefits were earned by her husband’s hard work and the government’s promise not to let widows and children slip through the cracks. Social Security is a promise; don’t let the Deficit Commission or Congress break that promise to our citizens.
