The new year’s updates have all been completed and we’re settling into another year. We’ve had the good news about the Social Security COLAs and the bad news about the Medicare Part B premiums; the Federal Poverty Level is up again, and Social Security said they were coming back into offices, changed their minds and may now be back as winter takes off its heavy overcoat and ‘cuckoo-buds of yellow hue / do paint the meadows with delight’. So, spring, or thereabouts.

We’ll keep the updates coming as they arrive but all the while we’d like to look to you to give us any suggestions on what you’d like to know more about, or to ask us any benefits-related questions that we haven’t yet addressed. There’s no time limit on when you should submit your entry so if ever anything should come to mind, please feel free to drop us a line at

We look forward to hearing from you!
