Above all it is important to embrace the retired lifestyle with the enthusiasm and excitement that you might greet any new opportunity. Do not let being retired mean just not working. In fact, go through the mental and emotional exercises of putting the working world behind you and redefining yourself in this new role. You are retired now and you are a senior citizen and maybe even a grandparent.

“This process of figuring out the government’s role is going to involve some hard choices,” says Alyssa Katz, author of Our Lot: How Real Estate Came to Own Us. “The moment you start changing the nature of what is guaranteed by the government, what is subsidized, you start to change the alignment of winners and losers. … We took for granted that anyone could get a mortgage.”
The bland and faux tanned Minority Leader thinks that the issue is that people are living longer and so we have to pay Social Security benefits for a longer period of time, thus making it too expensive. So what is the simple (minded) solution? Raise the age that people can stop working. This way there is less time between our elderly citizens leaving the workforce and dying. That will keep the costs down.
One of the biggest problems seniors face hasen’t even been mentioned. The cost of health care related issues. Most already know that medicare will not cover all health related issues. Many seniors feel they will need to work till they drop and feel they can rely on employer funded health plans well into their retirement years. The economic situation we find ourselves in today requires we do more for ourselves. A local company just announced they are going to cut back 7800 jobs. Who do you think they will look at first? Think maybe the 50+ will be the first to go?
The deadline for filing 2009 Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) applications
has been extended to Nov. 1. The current deadline is Aug. 2.
The State Budget permits applicants who received a reimbursement last year to get a
check in 2010, provided their 2009 income was $70,000 or less and they meet all other
eligibility requirements. However, the budget limits reimbursement payments to the
amount the applicant received last year.
If you are a senior citizen, an adult child with an aging parent or a care giver, you may want to attend one or many of the sessions.
