I was told by my H.M.O. that the social security department, sent out incorrect 2,020 updates to a whole lot of people. Didn’t say how many, and how much the mail out cost them/us. I should get another one stating that my new amount will be $110.
So I have lost $35 a month, but better than most of it. They say inflation is low, geez I can’t see it.
Then I got my credit card statement with a big increase on our home Spectrum account. So I phoned them. The lady was really nice, and said that she couldn’t do anything about it. I told her about getting less social security, and how do they expect seniors to pay it.
I told her that I have my cell phone with them too. I gave her the phone number, and she sent me a code. After giving it to her, she spent a long time, and finally got me $10 off a month. She went beyond expectations for me.
I can’t tell you how much time it takes me to get things sorted out. I will never give up, when it costs me extra money, that our income doesn’t provide.
This is an update on my previous post.
