    Get direct deposit! You need to do that by next March anyway. See http://www.ssa.gov/deposit/ for details.

    I went down and signed up.
    They are making me wait a month and 9 days before it starts.

    If he’s relying on Social Security checks, how lucky was he to begin with?

    Lucky he was able to GET SS. According to our politicians, (on BOTH sides) the system is going broke. They could fix it, but they won’t.

    No pot of gold in that mailbox, if that’s all he gets to live on. Unless General Mills sends him royalty checks.

    My birthday was in October so last year I called SS about signing up in April. They told me that they would pay 2318/ month starting 5/1 – OR – they could backdate it to 11/1/2011 and pay me LESS (but in a lump sum).
    _
    “So what’s the difference?” the answer was “well, IF we backdate it you will get a lump sum of $11390 and future payments of 2278..”
    _
    So I did a quick calculation in my head and said “Well, that means that I have to collect for about 21 years before I break even… I’ll take the lump sum” he said “I thought you would”

    With so much blank space I’m guessing he went to check the spelling, got distracted, and forgot to add the rest before submitting it. But I still thought it was funny.
