I was having a problem collecting my spousal Social Security after losing my husband earlier this year. I went to the Social Security office numerous times, and although they were very courteous I did not receive the help I needed in a timely manner.

I contacted Sen. Tim Scott’s office in hopes of some help and within a week I had the problem cleared up.

I want to commend Sen. Scott and his staff for their speedy action in helping me out. He really is one of the good guys.
