Your article on Social Security struggles (“Social Security Struggles: Seniors Attempt to Get by Despite Small Cost-of-Living Adjustments,” Jan. 26) was way off the mark with its example of Mary Callahan. According to her, she receives over $1,300 a month on Social Security plus she gets a pension.

I am sure her sewage bill is not high since she is one person in the house. Why didn’t the reporter interview someone living strictly on Social Security?

Maybe the reporters should go to the senior centers or the food banks and interview a senior there.

Ms. Callahan was right that she is not poor and did not belong in this story!
