I am hungry, anxious, and heavily depressed in the current state of finances I am in currently. I have not gotten a pension or Social Security check since June, 2021 of this year.
Ever since they started to send checks directly to the banks, the banks keep telling me there is no money available yet.
I’ve called Social Security and they told me that the cash flow is very slow and try to be patent.
Since then, I have stop calling Social Security and started to borrow money from a few family members I have remaining in this country who mostly works for the government, but its only so much I can borrow before I put myself in extreme depth. They too have been receiving their salaries from government late.
The issues I have is senior citizens like myself and others are suffering enormous financial pains and strains, and the government led by Prime Minister Gaston Browne has a large delegation travel with him to COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland, for climate change summit, yet we cannot get monies which we have contributed to the Social Security while we were working.
Taxpayers’ monies fund their travels, peridium’s, accommodation while we the seniors are suffering. The priority of this administration is absolutely messed up.
The government, the board and head of Social Security should all resign for the way they have treated senior citizens and they all should be ashamed of themselves.
The politicians in power right now have not taken a paycheck, the board and staff at Social Security and other government institutions has been paid their monies owed to them rightfully so why can we the senior who worked sweat, blood and tears who contributed to Social Security can get paid.
I am absolutely fed up, disgusted and sickened by the treatment meted out to us by the government and Social Security. We need our monies; we have bills to pay, and we have to feed ourselves, the wickedness needs to stop.
Election time I don’t want to hear from ANY POLITICIAN at all. Just fake promises and lies you all are about.
