Democratic U.S. House candidate Kathleen Williams hosted an informational session on the nation’s Social Security program Wednesday, explaining the nuts and bolts of it and possible actions Congress is taking that threaten the program’s funding.

Williams sat among a panel of four, who considered themselves Social Security advocates and spoke in favor of preserving the program. They spoke to a group of about 20 at the community room at the Bozeman Public Library.

Dan Adcock is the policy director at the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, a national group that works to protect the two programs. Adcock explained that workers earning under $128,400 contribute 6.2 percent of their paychecks to the Social Security program.
