Subject: Personal Health Information (PHI) forms

Is there a way to get a form like this thru the mail so we can filled it out and mail it to our representative? I know it will be available at the next meeting but for those of us that either don't go or can't-is there a way to still get this form-should any questions or problems happen with our Blue Cross?

Subject: a "pre" warning on ss

I am finding out IF you do not decide to have federal taxes taken out of your ss check RIGHT off the bat (as in first ss check received) you will find out if you decide you best do that after getting a ss check without any fed taxes taken out-that-you will be basically penalized THREE week DELAY in getting your next ss check! I turned in my paperwork after getting my first ss check to have federal tax taken out after all (and not pay the tax at the end of the year)....I guess I was curious what the difference would be-in my case a $400 difference-each month so the fed tax can be paid) but I guess they take so darn long to process ANYthing-that this can happen as well....thought I'd prepare anyone else-just in case -so they won't have to go thru this as well.

Subject: Thank you!

I appreciate the replies on my question. This is also my first year to collect ss and my pension(about the same amount combined I was getting before with just a pension). Now next year, I will find out if that continues or they change it again due to my dh going on SS. Time will only tell.

Subject: Sue's W-2 and Tom's reply

I didn't realize GM provided life insurance to retirees, if this is correct I should check into it more closely.

Name: Tom McDonald
Subject: W-2

W-2 was for taxes and Social Security owed because of life insurance provided by GM.

Sue, in your post, "Name: Sue Subject: W-2 GM question 1/26/2015 Mike Haddock -or-? anyone else-can you tell me what this is? I got a w-2 form showing I got a wage of $87.12...I do not remember getting any money from GM-I do get my pension and SS check now monthly...can anyone tell me what this is and why do I keep getting these? TIA(thanks in advance) for any helpful answer.... " I was thinking, it may have been wages for the last year of the UAW Legal Services. It's a benefit that's added at the end of the year as a wage.

Subject: Dear Santa

After reading Nick's post here<<>> I wanted to share this letter I read-to Santa(and I could feel the same way too lol) "Dear Santa, this year(Christmas 2016) please send me a fat bank account and a slim body. Please do not confuse the two like you did last year". I am officially on SS now-meaning way less money :( so I really may need Santa's help to fatten my bank account up more . Some good news I also heard was when one turns 70 in Oklahoma-they do not have to do jury duty anymore(as in yaaa!!!) and when one is over 65-they do not have to pay for their driver license renewal!"

Hello to all my friends, co-workers, and people I do not know, who view this site. I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and happy Holiday Season. May Santa be good to you all and may you all prosper in both health and wealth in the new year. To those of you who have lost love ones in 2014 and earlier, my condolences to you all and may time heal your empty hearts. I worked for General Motors for 30.5 years and in many ways, General Motors is the only family I ever knew. My love goes out to you all. Thanks, Nick.
