Preliminary Elections

Preliminary Elections

Did you know that the fastest-growing sector of the electorates is seniors? According to the US Census, in 2016 there were 49.2 million people over the age of 65 living in America, by 2035 that number will nearly double to 78 million. The Pew Research Center predicts that in 2020 individuals 65 and older will make up almost a quarter of votes! What does this mean for seniors? It means that the collective voice of seniors has the power to create real change in this country. There is power in numbers and with important issues like healthcare and the national debt crisis on the line, it is everyone's responsibility to practice their right to vote. We still have over a year ahead of us before the presidential election, but we must stay aware and watch as many debates as possible. The preliminary debates will begin in Iowa on February 3rd, 2020 and will reach Florida by March 17th, 2020. Currently, there...

Remembering 9/11

Remembering 9/11

“No day shall erase you from the memory of time.”- Virgil Those are the words etched on the walls of the September 11 Memorial Museum in steel recovered from the Twin Towers. Eighteen years ago, our nation suffered a horrific attack in New York City at the World Trade Center site and at the Pentagon, on September 11, 2001. In a terror attack aimed at the symbols of America’s power and prosperity, 2,977 people were killed and over 6,000 were injured. There were no survivors on the hijacked planes and only 20 survivors were pulled out of the flaming rubble. The tragedy is one of the largest losses of life due to a foreign attack on American soil, as well as the greatest loss of rescue personnel (in one incident) in American history.  In remembrance of this tragic day where our nation came together as one, our team at OurSeniors.net would like to take a moment to honor all the victims...

Social Security Errors!

Social Security Errors!

If you or a loved one have received bills for as many as five months of premiums, do not toss that bill away! According to the Social Security Administration, “Due to a processing error in January, some Medicare Advantage and Part D beneficiaries' requests to have premiums withheld from their Social Security benefit checks did not go through.” This means that the premiums you thought you had paid for these past few months are actually still due. These errors may cost you a cancellation in your Medicare Advantage plan or Medicare Part D drug prescription plans. Once these plans are cancelled, it will be difficult to have them reinstated and you will still owe the past-due premiums (if the plans are reactivated). It might take months to realize if you have been affected if you are not aware already (if you have been affected you will receive a bill in the mail). Instead of waiting for a past-due bill, be...

Independence for Seniors

Independence for Seniors

As we age it becomes harder to maintain our independence, especially when trying to complete errands or get around. Our eyesight, motor senses and perception diminish, that coupled with medical issues can be dangerous not only for yourself but for others as well.

Luckily, Plan Life Care offers affordable, professional and caring home living assistance. Our team at OurSeniors.net has vetted Plan Life Care. You can rest assured that their team follows the OurSeniors.net code of ethics and is guaranteed to provide OurSeniors with the care they deserve.

Are you prepared for Hurricane Season?

Are you prepared for Hurricane Season?

In the northern Atlantic Ocean, hurricane season begins on June 1st and ends on November 30th. The most dangerous month of the season is September when historically the average of mature hurricanes peaks. If you have lived in Florida long enough, then you know the power that lies within a hurricane. According to NASA, “hurricanes are the most violent storms on earth.” Their winds can range from 74 mph to 157 mph or more! Winds that strong are catastrophic and we never know exactly when such a storm can develop, so we must always be prepared. How to prepare for Hurricane Season: Plan an evacuation route (ahead of time) Search for local shelters and your state’s Department of Transportation or Office of Emergency Management website to find evacuation routes. Sign up for local alerts Stock non-perishables Stock emergency supplies First aid kit/medicine Flashlights, extra batteries Waterproof matches Hygienic supplies Protective gear, blankets Priceless items (jewelry, heirlooms) Collect and safeguard critical...
