I am not offended either way so don't worry about that. My granfather retired from 2 jobs served in the Military(did not retire) and his companies pensions went into the tank when everyone recieved bailouts and old timers pensions and health benefits were the first to go. So he paid in a never got to use it, should she recieve it?

    IMO there is alot of abuse of that money.
    My guess is she is not entitled to any SS income benefits other than perhaps a small -and I do mean small- death benefit from her husbands participation in SS. Medicare is an entirely different animal and would depend on her specific situation. Go to medicare.gov/medicareeligibility for specifics.

    I'm not being argumentative, but I am very curious about that line of thinking. I don't see how it could do anything but good for the US and our workers.
    I believe it was Smoot-Hawley but not sure, as I believe Glass-Steagal to be the banking bill, both from the depression. That & some fairly poor assumptions on the part of our then sitting president & a SOtH that coveted his position.

    Tariffs create other tariffs from the other side & nobody ever wins. We need to export a lot of value added stuff to cover all the union sympathizers who shop for Chinese stuff at Wally World .

    I guess I should have said it different, she does receive it, but do you think she should? Women working wasn't as common back in the day as it is now, just curious as to what you guys think.

    I think she should because I believe your grandpa earned it.
