Title: Holy Crap !
Post by: D45/70 on March 02, 2018, 02:23:06 PM
My wife "HAS" to retire in July after 33 years Sounds good right.
 Wrong she has our Insurance , I can't get t through Walmart I'm 2 hours under the Minimum hours to qualify.
 I get a pension and SS she will to. BUT.
 Some of the Insurance quotes are coming in... OMG!
 How the heck can a person get Ins.There 10 times what my house payment was.
 I'm talking bottom of the line $6000/$7000 deductible predicts.Only 75% coverage and big copay. We don't qualify for Any Obama money.
 $3000 a month, WTF ?
 My wife will have to get a part time job that pays almost to the top for her SS. Even full time Minimum wage will not be enough . Just for Ins.
 Golden Years like hell!
 We can stay on her Ins with a "Cobra" at $1100 sounds like a barging now.

Man, that sucks, sorry you got caught in that. We all knew it would happen when they rolled out Obama Care. Only question was when.
 These days, I stay at my job for the insurance. The hourly wage alone ain't worth it.

 We found out we can do a "Cobra" on here current Ins plan at her work.
 Not cheep by any means but it's just over a grand a month that's half of an individual policy.

Wife and I had a nice insurance lady here a while back and she offered at no cost, insurance that supplements Medicare. she also said meds would have a small co-pay. I sent her msg on facebook and am waiting for her answer as to my requested info. It is the company we will have when I retire.

That sucks D.  My insurance covers most of what the bills are, but it's gotten a whole lot worse since Obamacare came about.  :tickedoff   It used to cover everything and we had $10 copays.  Now the copays are $20-30 and we still get a bill from where insurance didn't cover everything.

Hate to think of what it's going to be like when I get up to your age.

  :tickedoff Yeah, Obama really  put it to us! I'm paying much more that some could imagine.

Being a part of the golden years is an expensive joke. I am still working so I can afford the overpriced insurance. It also enables us to have a better diet than cat food and not have to walk the roadside ditches for cans and bottles.  :roll:
