As I sit and pen this letter, my heart feels torn apart and my eyes are filled with tears, for the state that one of our national institutions has crumbled.
I am a new pensioner, and I am very much aware & do empathize with the Director & his staff for the financial plight that his establishment, SS is presently facing.
However, I am just not clear, neither can I understand that after applying for my pension 10 months ago, that to this day, I have not even been blessed with my first payment of my pension…
It is unbelievable & very distasteful!!
The financial bind that SS is in, has now been an eye opener for me and i hope it will be for many more….. Retirement is a must.
A pension is a must. However, preparing for retirement should also be a must with the cliche in mind “Never depend on putting all your eggs in one basket “.
A backup plan is critical!!
