  • If someone is on an advantage medicare plan is it free for their medications?

    I know someone who just switched over to AARP senior advantage who is taking 3 medications. He said he hasn't had to pay anything for them. He also said he can spend $60.00 per month for OTC meds they pay for. On guy on line wrote he's taking 8 medications and doesn't have to pay anything for them. I have a medigap & need this due to traveling to different states to visit my family & grandchildren. But medications sure aren't free. Far from it.

  • My employer filed my W-4 incorrectly, What do I do?

    I've been working for a small warehousing company here in las vegas for 4 months now, making only $10/hourly, we have 7 employees. When I was hired, I put down Married and "1" on my W-4. I just got my W-2, my wife and I put it into our return, and it dropped our amount down over $750 because it shows there has never been any Federal Withholding taken out of my paychecks. I asked my employer, she said "that's not right, there should have been money being taken out, well get in touch with the payroll company". My question is, does the employer benefit in some way, for filing it this way - with no federal withholding coming out? I only made about $3,700-$4,000 in these 4 months working, so having $750 taken out of our return is huge. Is Part of that $750 a fee for not lending the IRS money basically? This employer made me sign a paper when hired saying theres no overtime pay, i.e if you work 12 hours a day 7 days a week you only make $10/hr. There are 2 employees working 6 days a week, clock in at 6am and leave at 5-6pm, have Never received a cent in overtime ...I'm being told by family and friends this is highly illegal no matter what "made up paper they had us sign" according to Nevada Law. I did not want to have to Owe the IRS come tax time, thus why I filed Married and 1 dependent, so now its filed wrong, on purpose or otherwise, should my employer cover the cost of the portion that was a penalty/fee I incurred? I appreciate any answers and help. Thank you

  • Are we at the point where raising the age for social security benefits is the only way to save it?

    I know that the idea leaves a bad taste in many people's mouths, and most politicians dare not propose it. But if we try the novel idea of being honest about the situation, here's what we know: When social security went into effect, a large percentage of the population didnt live to be 65. And of those who did, most of them didnt see 70. It was meant to be a little extra income to help sustain you in your final months or years. But then, a population boom began the very next decade and has lasted perpetually. Furthermore, most people are living to 80 nowadays and many live WELL into their 80s and beyond, and are collecting way beyond what they put into it. The amount paid into the system hasnt touched the amount being taken out for a long time, and something has to give. We can simply not talk about it, pretend we don't have a problem, but if it's raise the age and keep the system around, or let the system implode upon itself and no one gets anything, then which would we rather have? Going on as it is now permanently is simply not in the cards, and our hand may bust sooner than we think.

  • Employer fraud?

    I applied to a fast food place and they accepted right away. I went into the back and got everything done that day. they scheduled me for training a week later. i spent one hour working and the guy send me home. he tells me he will text me my schedule. its been ten days. he was ignoring my calls so i went in person and asked. he tells me that they are short on staff that's why he hasn't called me in yet cause he was working so much. why not schedule the guy you just hired? my siblings who have experience in restaurant management says its weird cause they get fined for not scheduling an employee to work. also weird cause they hired me the same day i walked in. brother also brought up the fact that i handed in a physical application with my full SSN. i ****** up there. ive technically only worked 1hr in 2 weeks. i was also told that it was illegal to schedule only that many hours. everything about this seems wrong... i would like some advice on what to do. what if has or is trying to commit fraud? take my identity or something. they didnt even tell me when we got paid. wasnt even a proper orientation. i was advised to call HR as soon as p

  • Fair split of rent for a small studio apartment?

    Hello, what would in your opinion be a fair split of rent for a studio apartment, assuming everything is shared equally (room size, utilities, etc.)? The only thing is, this roommate would be staying for five nights per week and going back home on the weekends. I don't think 50/50 would be fair as I would obviously stay there all week.

  • My boyfriend received an audit from the IRS and he's asking me to help him pay.?

    He doesn't receive a w2. He is a self employed construction worker. They are asking for him to pay for the previous 4 years he has not paid his taxes for a total of a little over $36,000 The only problem is he does not have the funds available at the moment. He's asked me if I could pay the bill for him and he'll pay me back, but my question is; If the bill is paid, will that be the last of it? Will the IRS come back asking more? I have money in my savings account that I can use to pay it off, but I just need to know if the IRS will consider it paid and not coming back for more money. He's said that he ran into an emergency a few years ago and he's been playing catch up. I understand things happen. We have been together for 6 months so I know him pretty well to know that he will pay me back.

  • How do people retire and survive with no retirement savings.?

    So I live in an affluent area of the country-Long Island. Most of our friends- in their late 50's are very prepared for retirement financially- 401'ks etc.... I'm no where near ready and prepared to work as long as I can- but still I'm better off then many people. The question- what do the folks with noo retirement do- in your opinion.- Can one survive on social security. I find if funny when you tell someone you have $500,000 set aside for retirement and they tell you that is not even close to enough.

  • How to deal with my family repeatedly trying to get me to call out of work the day of my shift to help them with errands/tasks?

    I’m worried I’ll get fired or look like a bad employee because they only give me a few hours notice before my shift that I need to call out. I don’t live with them I am financially independent. But I have the best car so they expect me to run errands for them and help with housework at their place. I don’t mind helping but I need a weeks notice not 2 hours so I can get someone to cover my shift.
