Letters to the editor on Social Security, citizen oppression, Kansas Democrats, student loans

The Social Security survivors benefit needs to be changed. Say a person pays $50 every two weeks for 40 years into Social Security. That’s $52,000, not including interest. If this person dies before retirement age and has no children or spouse, the parents will get a one-time $255 survivors benefit. Not only is this discriminatory toward single people, it’s just wrong.
