Next year we could see one of those odd “hold harmless” premiums for Medicare Part B - that is, a year when the premium increase is larger than the Social Security cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). By law, the dollar amount of the Part B premium increase cannot exceed the dollar amount of the CO...

Like many groups, they need some income for the work they do for Seniors. They understand if you can't. I thank them for being so dedicated to Seniors and they care!

In NJ, nothing is affordable so next year we Seniors/very low income, have no idea what to do. I can't even afford a car. Now, paying for Medical and rent. Food too. We feel doomed after all the years we worked to end up with a broken system.
I have a couple questions for senior citizens. My reason for asking is that I'm an insurance broker and kicking around ideas for designing a new ad. How many know that Medicare Supplement plans can be shopped out and changed anytime throughout the year? How many know that the supplement plans are standardized by the government and the plan designs, for instance Plan F, are the exact same from carrier to carrier? Supplement plans are not bound by the Annual Enrollment dates that the Rx or Medicare Advantage plans are.
The Senior Citizen is black.
Got a Problem Here With My Govt. Have Paid Into SS Since 1960, MY MONEY !!!! What's The Problem Giving It Back? SS IS NOT a Govt. Benifit, (OUR / MY MONEY PAID IN) In Fact, "They" Stole It In The Name Of Barrowing It" ... Our (Govt.) Doesn't Have Any Trouble Giving "Our / My" Money To "Law Breaking" Illegals' & Non-Working ... Yes, Some AMERICANS' Need Help, I Understand ...But This Other Stuff Is Stealing ....STEALING ...Understand???
Again you had me submit one of your incomplete surveys and when I wrote you to comment, your screen asked for my first and last name. Ofcourse I would gladly give you my name but there was no where to enter it. Is this a game? Or is it you don't want to hear what others have to say.
I've read a lot of negative feed aimed at the Senior Citizens League and I don't understand why? Our Representatives don't give a dame about Seniors. Do we hear any talk at all from our representatives about the negative cost of living raises Seniors receive? I have written my representatives for years with little or no response. The biggest problem as to why the Retiree's Trust Fund is running dry is a no brainer. Since the Reagan Adm., Social Security DISABILITY has been paid from the Social Security Trust Fund. Just watch Judge Judy and we can conclude that the Disability Program in our country is out of control. One woman got Disability because she had a gambling problem. A lot of people find that if their child is a little slow then they can get Social Security Disability for that child. What message does that say to the child? There are people in our society that know the system and take advantage of it. The disability system needs an overhaul and needs to be paid from a separate account, not the Retiree's Trust Fund Another fault is the way COLA is set up, the COLA deduction from paychecks stops at a certain dollar amount. I suggest that the COLA deduction is paid on a full year salary. The more you make, the more you pay.
You leave a post and want to know what I think and then when I take the time to tell you, the e-mail won't go through. It states it needs a name but there is no where to add a name. Who set this up?
