My Brother Robert

Carol loves her brother Robert. Robert was born disabled, and has been living with her for 23 years. Carol says Social Security benefits help her care for Robert, and keeps him healthy and happy while living with her and her family.

Indeed, Social Security is everybody’s business – family business – and not an “entitlement” that benefits unfamiliar individuals. Social Security is a fiscally solvent and sustainable program that provides vital support in maintaining the fabric of American families’ economic well being during the course of life events, such as retirement, as well as during unforeseen circumstances, such as the early death of a spouse or the permanent disability of a sibling.
