    Please support this Bill, H.R. 4540. As a former teacher, my benefits have been slashed by 2/3rds. My contributions to Social Security were not from my teaching job but other jobs I held to supplement the my income. Also, as a widow, contributions my late husband made are also cut by 2/3rds. Due to the reduction in benefits, I don’t have enough money to pay for Medicare payments and must pay out of pocket again. This bill would at least increase my SS payments to cover the premium. Thank you for your support. Chris Chase

    Please support this very needed adjustment to Social Security benefits for those public service workers that earned SS benefits prior to entering public service.
