Jan 25.  Welcome, to this week's newsletter. We are so happy to have you as part of our community! 

Sometimes we tackle subjects that we believe are very important toretirees, but also have the potential to generate controversy. Today's article on Medicare seems to fit that description. Please be assured that we try to the best of our ability to be factual and non-partisan. We ask that you do your best to do the same in your comments, which we greatly appreciate. We want this site to be a friendly place to learn and discuss retirement issues, keeping politics and religion out of it. If you would like to see more about our goals for discussion, please see ourSite Rules.
