Editor:

Although I have read much about pay increases lately, I would like to mention Social Security that most of our retired seniors live on — and have helped fund it during their work life. My Social Security has averaged an annual increase of 1.8 percent over the past 20 years and my wife Chris has seen an increase of 1.3 percent in her years of it. This year I gained $4 monthly and Chris gained $2 monthly. There were six years in which there were no increases. This was explained by the federal government that “there was no increase in the cost of living.” When was that true?

There is a simple answer to being upset about Social Security. Stop taking it - no one is forcing you.
