    No deposit in my account.

    From first hand experience I can tell you that when my late wife passed SSA was contacted directly by the funeral home we used. SSA did send her next month deposit but retracted it the next month. remember that you do not receive a check the month following death. Example if the die in March you will receive a check in April but they will rescind it at a future date. My wife died on May 15, 2017 we received a check in June and the money was taken back in July. It is strange that for SSA you must complete the whole month to collect benefits for that month.

    USA - Medicare Part B

    I am 52 and collecting SSD and have medicare with a medicare advantage plan currently. My thinking was when I do make the move over there to drop both the premiums I pay for MAP and the $135 per month for original medicare. But this could surely change that if they can provide a similar service while living there.

    Was just wondering if you are married for over 2 years. Why did you not try for a IR-1 spousal visa?

    Decisions Decisions?

    When I tell friends and family that I am thinking about moving to the Philippines, The question always comes up. " Why would you want to move to the Philippines?" I don't say a word and just show them these 2 pictures....Outside my front door this morning. The place I would rather be this morning. Funny no more questions after seeing this. Have a great day everyone. Outside for more snowblowing for me.

    cebu city, recommendations?

    Dave is correct What are you wanting to do while there is the key thing. On my first visit to there I stayed near Osmena Circle and would probably stay there again. Was convenient for me and the price was not bad. Let me know if you want the hotel I stayed at or just look at my previous post about my trip.

    RIP Roy Clark

    I don't know how many country music fans there are here, but country music lost a legend the other day. Rest in peace Mr. Roy Clark. This scene was just incredible. Wow
  14. Yes crossing into Canada used to be much easier but not anymore, As US citizen you will need either an Enhanced Drivers license or your passport to cross same as coming back to USA. As for the filipino PP holder I am am unsure about visa requirement. So remember even if a US citizen will need one of those 2 types of ID. Good luck and if you do decide to do Niagara Falls give me a holler Can give some good advice on things to do things to avoid and restos or hotels to stay at.
