The latest medicare/Social Security idiocy
by Lynne Perry
I retired July 1st of this year at the age of 70.
I was notified that my Medicare Part B premium was going from $121.80 to $134.00 which is $12.20 more per month.
A week ago I got a letter from SS telling me the SS benefits were increasing by 0.3% for a cost of living increase. Yes, a big whopping 0.3%, translating to approximately $6.00 more per month.
So, my SS check will be smaller in 2017 than it is now!! On what planet do these stinking politicians think 0.3% covers inflation??????????
I'm really glad I've been able to get a part time job as a cashier. It not only gets me out of the house, making the retirement transition easier, but it will help with the rising costs of everything!
Old age isn't for the weak.
