It is good news to see we are getting out dental and vision back in 2015. I have kept my COBRA in force so I had benefits while ours were lacking. Now, I wonder, once I give up the cobra, if I decide to, I will not be able to get it back. So, what if we get coverage for 2015 but then they decide to drop it again? So, I'm just sitting on the fence. Hello Sue! Thanks for the updates Dave. Hope all who are left are well and happy. Bye for now.

The text of the announcement that David wanted to share showed up in my inbox! Here it is:

Dear All,
 
There is some great news for all retirees concerning reinstate  of Dental & Vision benefits next year.... please click in the browser to read the details.
 
One question to all, if you know the answer, please kindly provide : I need to have 2 crowns cap fixed soon ( it will costs me about $3000 out of pocket) because I have only very basic dental coverage from UAW-GM, if you know Delta Dental pre 2009 coverage or the up and coming coverage, I hope they will at least some coverage on this Crowns service ?  I intend to keep the service on hold to until early next year  hoping the new Dental coverage will cover some of my expense, what do you think ?
 
Wishing All of my friends and Happy and Solemn Memorial Day Holiday,  and don't forget to Thanks A Vet .
I am very very disturb about the current VA scandals  how could a captive terrorist held in Gitmo received better VA healthcare than Our Proud and Brave Veterans who put their lives on the line to serve this country of OURS : The United States Of America
 
God Bless You All
 
David

Hi everyone. It's been a while since Sue posted her link and a while since I've checked in. Well, I can't open her link. Any help? On another note, it's sad to see more passing away of members. How much longer till we're all gone I wonder. It seems like a steamroller of obituaries some times. It is so sad, knowing time is running out.......
