Supporting Our Youth, Protecting Our Future

Social Security serves a person for life — from birth, to death, and even beyond, by helping to care for surviving dependents. When a parent becomes disabled or dies, Social Security benefits help to stabilize the family’s financial future in an otherwise turbulent time. And we pay benefits to adults and children.

  • Ian Anderson Grumpy old man

    I wish them luck but I would be so much more excited about this if Battaglia hadn't been such a prick towards the owners of Knockbox. I know it's not Mike Simmons' fault and I'll still shop/dine here when it's convenient for me but man, I love to eat and cook and this place could probably have counted on half my paycheck if they were leasing from anyone else.

Man charged with murdering 7-year-old held without bond

And just hours before Amari was gunned down on a Humboldt Park sidewalk, the enemies fired at each other near Harding and Thomas, Cook County prosecutors said.

Amari was struck in the chest as he stood on the sidewalk shortly before midnight later that day after watching fireworks in the 1100 block of North Harding. His father, Antonio Brown, was the intended target, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy has said.

Martin, his cohort and two of his other friends ran away from the scene after the shooting. But the witnesses identified Martin, of the 900 block of North Monticello, as one the shooters, Cooper said.
