WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of older Americans who rely on federal benefits will get a 1.7 percent increase in their monthly payments next year, the government announced Wednesday.
Ouch, that hurt, but let's get it straight. Social Security and Medicare "contributions" are not funds invested in any way similar to a savings account.
HAMMOND | A Hebron man accused of illegally acquiring Social Security funds has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors.
Just who does this Pete Seat think he is? Yes, I'm a boomer, and proud of it. I've paid into Social Security, and Medicare since 1965, and I'm going to get my money's worth.
INDIANAPOLIS | The future of America depends on "millennials" — people born after 1980 — working together to undo the damage wrought by baby boomers on the nation's economy, finances and foreign policy, according to a new book by Schererville native Pete Seat.
Seniors, are you abreast of what these congressmen and senators are planning to do? Seniors who worked for 40, 50 years or more, know they are working to cut Social Security pay. How much they will not say.
HAMMOND | A Gary woman faces charges of using Social Security benefits intended for her daughter.
Sharon Bathgate read my letter about a Supreme Court ruling on Social Security. My article was two paragraphs and 80 words.
Ed Soltys' manifesto gave us permission to disagree with him, and I do, with his comment on Social Security. I think he has overlooked the fact that this is a social insurance system designed to protect all members of the family unit that depend on the wage earner.
David Riordan is being led down a false trail. You should always check the facts before believing things from calls or mail you receive.
I just received letter from the American Federation of Senior Citizens. It seems the U.S. Supreme Court's ruled Social Security is like welfare and the government is not required to pay benefits.
The last months of institutional turmoil in Congress have included sequestration, a government shutdown and a near default on our debt. My vote, in favor of the bipartisan compromise to re-open the government and to prevent default on our monetary obligations, was necessary to make certain t…
INDIANAPOLIS | Count U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita among Republicans who -- contrary to nearly every economist -- believes it would be a good thing in the long run if the United States defaults on its national debt Thursday.
I have voted more than two dozen times to repeal, defund and strip provisions from Obamacare. It is a principle I share with all Republicans, and I will continue to support these efforts. I want the result to be victory, which is why I have concerns with a push by some to shut down the government.
Talk about kicking someone when she’s down: A woman who lost her job when the AJ Wright distribution center in South Bend shut down was told her unemployment benefits will be trimmed by more than 10 percent, thanks to the mindless federal budget cut known as the “sequester.” Meanwhile, major…
Labor Day is a celebration of the incredible contributions of America’s working people. Through sweat, sacrifice and innovation, workers built this great state and nation. And we continue to make it work every day.
MERRILLVILLE | A free seminar about the role of Social Security in retirement is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday at Avalon Manor, 3550 E. Lincoln Highway.
The almost three decades in Congress obviously are beginning to take a heavy mental toll on Pete Visclosky based on his comments this week.
If you want my input, take Social Security off the government's hands. Put Social Security back the way President Franklin Roosevelt meant it to be -- a retirement plan for working people who paid into it.
Every day of the year, Americans across the nation remember friends and family members who have served and sacrificed for their country. Memorial Day is a day when we all come together to honor those who have given their lives in the defense of freedom and the principles we hold dear in this…
