Myli Learns About Social Security
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     "Grandma, can you take me to the mall today? I want to use my Christmas gift certificate to buy some clothes," asked Myli.
 
2     "Sorry, Myli. It's not our day to use the car. You'll have to wait until Saturday unless you can find another ride," answered Grandma.
 
3     "What do you mean 'It's not our day to use the car,' Grandma? It's your car. Why can't you use it anytime you want to?" she asked.
 
4     "Because it costs too much to drive to town every day. Grandpa and I are on Social Security. We must use our money wisely because we are on a fixed income. We save all our errands until Saturday, and that is when we use the car. We try to get everything done with one trip."
 
5     "What is Social Security?" asked Myli.
