Well they say SS people will get a raise. Maybe 3.5. Will be annouced Wed. BUT medicare it seems will go up too, but did not mention if $4 prescriptions will go up. THey will say on medicare next week. They will just take it fron the checks.
Will one really be any better off? Stuff is already higher have to buy. I am not complaining about what they pay in SS. Least I am getting some bacK after paying in all those years. I have gone down hill in income since retiring. It pays for so much less than it did. YoSpuds, glad you checkdur pay checks dollar wise pays for less.
If I get an increase of that much it will go for the increase I will have to pay in Med ins in the other county. And increase in medicare. I know I am better off than some and worse off than others. All in all I will make it. What else do you do. Least get a check every month. I hope it keeps up.
They annouced this morning it 3.6 raise. Still maybe next week on how much the medicare goes up. Least they have admitt there is inflation. I am very surprised on the raise. In my case it will all go for med ins, medicare and the extra ins.
I will have to try and live on the same amount I do now. That $40 or so will stay in the bank to write med ins checks. Try to stay of out savngs. Probably have to leave more in for copay checks. They have a mich differnt pay plan for these few counties. I pay the doctor at the time I go in. They bill you the copay. Bloodtests the hospital bills me the copay. I never know if one or not. Checks will be the easiest. I will have to buy new checks. Just thought of that. And I need the new address for the ins too. I guess I sign up with this one here and tell them I will change when get moved. It will start Jan 1. I am paid with this one to end of the year. I am legal okay. Normal time to change. Every time medicare cuts the other med ins plans they go up. They have to set for a year. If RM would quit in13 or so I would be medcare only. I cold get a drug plan. I have to get a cluster/NBU box for mail. Free. I had thought I would have to rent P O BOx. Son says there are those boxes. Reason I have not saw they are at ends of alleys. IS this not fun. Have to get a key from PO and sign up and new the house /street number. No house there before. It is the street one block passed the stop light. Only one in town. That is how I find it.
