Social Security Press Office: Patty Duke Turns 65, Applies Online for Social Security and Medicare benefits

 

After years of telling people they can apply online for Social Security in their pajamas, Patty Duke has taken her own advice.  Duke, who turns 65 today, applied online for retirement and Medicare benefits from home atwww.socialsecurity.gov.

“I had no idea this would be such a momentous occasion,” said Duke, who for three years has volunteered her time promoting Social Security’s online services in numerous Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and media interviews.  In a new online video, Duke puts character acting aside and shows everyone what happened when she and her husband Mike Pearce sat down at the kitchen table, turned on their laptop, and applied for her retirement and Medicare benefits.

“All of us at Social Security wish Patty a very happy birthday,” said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security.  “She’s a Hollywood legend and an American treasure who reaches a very important milestone today.  True to form, she is the one giving us the birthday present by showing her fellow baby boomers the easiest way to apply for benefits.”The Patty Duke Show

 

In 2009, Duke reprised her roles as the identical cousins, Patty and Cathy Lane from the Patty Duke Show, for a series of PSAs promoting Social Security’s online services.  In 2010, Duke teamed up with the surviving Patty Duke Show cast members for an additional set of spots.  Earlier this year, she teamed up with entertainment icon George Takei to encourage people of all ages to “Boldly Go” to www.socialsecurity.gov.  In the three years since Duke has volunteered her time with Social Security, millions of people have visited the agency’s website and the percentage of online retirements has more than doubled.

“While I just applied for retirement benefits, I’m not retiring from being a Social Security spokesperson,” Duke says.  “I urge my fellow baby boomers to go online to www.socialsecurity.gov.  If you’re not sure how to get started on the computer, ask a loved one to help you out.  I did, and it was so easy.”

Let’s Talk Medicare Advantage

November 9th 2009

{ABOVE ALL ELSE READ THE BOOK }

Those of us who qualify for the Medicare Advantage Program are receiving our Medicare and you 2010 handbook. This year above all else the Knowledge we don’t have will Kill us. So From now until we get the coverage equality we deserve I will be talking to you about various MUST NO’S for America’s elderly and disabled

May 2009 I no longer qualified for my Company Insurance and was Placed on Medicare. Having worked since I was 12 (babysitting) and paid into this healthcare system for more than 20 years.  I think that the American People should know that we all have paid an extra $1,000 yearly toward the coverage of the Needy and Underinsured. For me that calculation is$7,000 yearly over 14 yrs  which equals $98,ooo of that $14,000 was taken without my knowledge. It was even called A Hidden tax.

But, the Government both Democrats and Republicans knew this was and continues to this day to be the Norm or  “status quo” and when you add up what insurance and hospital lobbyist have paid our Government Officials over that same time frame my small donation is peanuts. It was almost bragged about  approx 6 million dollars and rising has been paid  just this Year.

(They don’t seem to be in a recession) The Real big Money will come out for the Senate and all this to keep Medicare Advantage Seniors Paying and Paying. So why are they really working so hard to Not give the American People the same coverage they have?

Perhaps the fact that the Major 2 or 3 Insurance Companies have Corporate locations in many of the Republican and even some of the so-called blue dog democrat (all for one and one for all? ) States. Let’s just imagine the campaign contributions they could be receiving. For example I pulled this off the  United Healthcare information website. Make’s me wonder about how many more years The People will accept being lied to.
