BENEFITS: More than seniors get Social Security

Regarding our Social Security benefits, do all seniors know that others not 65 or older are collecting Social Security benefits?

According to Kimberly Yellow Robe, Social Security Administration public affairs specialist, minor children, widows and others receive it, too. They don’t have to have paid into it for 10 years and only meet other requirements. Why?

We can hardly meet our needs. Where are our golden years?
