Social Security Works for Jerry Otis

Via Social Security Works Washington:

“Social Security give me the means, the money and the resources to be able to participate in the community and be a part of the community. It’s made the difference between living in poverty and being able to get by.”

Social Security benefits make the difference for Jerry Otis. When Jerry had an operation in 1985 that left him paralyzed on his left side, Social Security benefits were there, helping him to maintain his economic security. Now, Jerry serves his community by running a nonprofit program that builds wheelchair ramps for people in need — helping to bring dignity and freedom disabled, elderly and low-income people’s lives.
