Michigan has been the scene of great hope © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. that the Dale Earnhardt Jr. nightmare would end, principally because it was the place where the previous victory had occurred. That race had, however, been a bit of a fluke since it was achieved more on the basis of fuel mileage than speed and it had been Earnhardt's only previous victory at the track. Earnhardt didn't give himself much of a chance the night before the race. "The car was a real handful, especially being around other cars," he said. "When they change the tire, it takes away a ton of mechanical grip. The car really relies a lot on the aero grip from that point on, and when you get around other cars, you lose that.

Crackdown coming on Pension Claims

Veterans of wartime service are eligible for a pension if they meet certain criteria: age 65 or older, can’t work, service during a certain period, have limited income. These criteria must be met, especially the limits on income. I hate to think it, but a number of veterans are cheating the system, and financial planners are helping them. The Government Accountability Office has unearthed no less than 200 companies that sell estateplanning services designed to help veterans who have too many assets to qualify for the pension benefit. Of those, the GAO investigated 20 companies that help

establish trusts, set up annuities and transfer assets (that’s currently allowed under law). Of course these companies charge a fee, from hundreds to many thousands of dollars, for their advice -- advice that might not be in the veteran’s best interest. A bill is making its way through Congress that would require stronger oversight of the benefits money. For example, depending how the final version of the bill reads, there could be a “look back” of three years. That means the veteran’s finances and assets will be scrutinized to see if he or she transferred any assets during that time to make the income look smaller. If you’re tempted to transfer assets to make it look like you qualify for the pension (even though it’s currently legal), be careful. If you apply for Medicaid, it does a 60-month look-back. If you’ve transferred assets, your Medicaid long-term-care coverage could be delayed for a long time. If you put assets into an annuity, thinking that you’ll have a monthly income from it, you might be locked out of it for years. To read details of some of the shady financial

June 28 - July 4, 2012 dealings these companies are promoting, go online to www.gao.gov and put GAO-12-784T in the search box. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail.com.
