Having just signed up,I want to bring to your attention the ineffectivness of the Social Security Administration. My husband worked for 40 years contributing a part of his paycheck to Social Security. He was always under the impression that when he would be deceased, I as his widow would receive benefits. Unfortunately, the amount that I have received since 1985 has been nominal. The reason: Because I worked for the Federal Government for 29 years and have collected monthly my pension fund, I am entitled to only $174.00. I feel that Social Security has been stealing from my deceased husband's fund all these years. This must be corrected and brought to the attention of your Director.
