Well good news for those that survive on SS only and do not file a tax return.

IF they had wanted to be included in the virus check giveaway - they would have had to file a tax return. One that would be set up on the IRS website soon,,,,

Well angry dems and repubs got that changed. Now if you get SS and do not file a return, you will get your virus check!

Thanks Clem. I had heard this from someone else but was not sure if it was true.. It will really be helpful during this difficult time for a lot of people.

They must live in another reality

I know so many seniors that would not know what to do.

FINALLY our governor has issued a statewide stay-at-home order this afternoon. With so many seniors in Florida and 6,955 cases and 87 deaths, what took him so long?
Money? If he didn't let spring break go on, whoever makes money off of that would never let him forget?
