This is just too stressful and frustrating working with the government. I like the idea of dog walker...
Congrats.

There's a McDs in Texas and the seniors play bingo every Tuesday morning - great outing first thing in the morning.

Have the GW to keep me active and engaged. When I get this one done, will have to get another.

Enjoy your retirement(s).

Cheers
Rebuilding Goldwings, now that's a good hobby and a fun one too.
Thank you.

Got my letter today from Social Security and I get $513.00 a month with my first one coming on 1-10-2018. What a way to start off the New Year.

That isn't much to live on. I think you will qualify for SSI, but it's a separate application.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I'm looking into senior housing that is based on income. I get food stamps and Medicaid, and the county has senior taxi service that is no cost. I fall way below the federal poverty level according to the senior housing chart at that level is $12,060.00. The county also offers commodity food to the seniors and I get that also. I can get S.S.I. when I turn 65 according to the website. But its worth looking into to see if they can help.
