Q: My neighbor, who is retired, told me that the income he receives from his part-time job at the local nursery gives him an increase in his Social Security benefits. Is that right? A: Retirees who return to work after they start receiving benefits may be able to receive a higher benefit based on those earnings. This is because Social Security automatically re-computes the retirement benefit after crediting the additional earnings to the individual’s earnings record. Learn more by reading the publication, How Work Affects Your Benefits, at www.socialsecurity. gov/pubs/10069.html.

——— Q: I plan to retire soon. When are Social Security benefits paid? A: Social Security benefits are paid each month. Generally, new retirees receive their benefits on either the second, third or fourth Wednesday of each month, depending on the day in the month the retiree was born. If you receive benefits as a spouse, your benefit payment date will be determined by your spouse’s birth date. Here’s a chart showing how your monthly payment date is determined. Day of the month you were born — Social Security benefits paid on

â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Q: I get Social Security because of a disability. How often will my case be reviewed to determine if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still eligible? A: How often we review your medical condition depends on how severe it is and the likelihood it will improve. Your award notice

tells you when you can expect your first review using the following terminology: Medical improvement expected â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If your condition is expected to improve within a specific time, your first review will be six to 18 months after you started getting disability benefits; Medical improvement possible â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If improvement in your medical condition is possible, your case will be reviewed about every three years; Medical improvement not expected â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If your medical condition is unlikely to improve, your case will be reviewed about once every five to seven years. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Q: What is the difference between Social Security disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability? A: Social Security administers two major programs that provide benefits based on disability: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI benefits are based on prior work under Social Security, and are financed with Social Security taxes paid by workers, employers and self-employed persons. To be eligible for an SSDI benefit, the worker must earn sufficient credits based on taxable work to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;insuredâ&#x20AC;? for Social Security purposes. SSI payments are made on the basis of financial need and are financed through general tax revenues. Adults or children who are

A: Many people eligible for Social Security disability benefits also may be eligible for SSI. The disability decision for one program is the same for the other, but you must meet additional resource and income limits to qualify for SSI benefits. Learn all about SSI and whether or not you may qualify by reading the publication, You May Be Able To Get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) at www.socialsecurity. gov/pubs/11069.html.

You’re never too old to tee off It doesn’t matter if it’s the front nine or the back nine, these women play every Wednesday — and 85 isn’t their average score, it’s their average age By Mary Tatko

Of Target Publications

When she says golf keeps you young, Mickey Corlis isn’t kidding around. Corlis, 87, golfs each week with a group of women ranging in age from 78 to 93, and while they haven’t found the fountain of youth, there might just be something to this golf thing. Six of the women drew their chairs into a circle in the ladies locker room at the Clarkston Golf and Country Club after a round of nine holes one recent Wednesday to discuss the merits of playing together, playing for fun and playing through the golden years. In 2009, Clarkston Women’s Golf Association president Connie Downen approached Corlis about starting a ninehole group. “So then we began talking to the ladies who were playing 18 holes and we had quite a list of ladies who thought they might be interested,” Corlis said. “And it’s really been a wonderful thing, because most of us don’t have the physical ability to play 18 holes.” Having a dedicated nine-hole group meant “that we could still come out and play golf, and compete if we wanted to

— or not compete,” Corlis said. “Everybody’s game is sort of like their own business,” she explained. “If I want to pick up the ball and I don’t want to play that hole, it doesn’t matter.” “Most of us don’t even keep score any more,” Vivian Bacharach, 90, said. “And we laugh at our mistakes,” Margie Troutt, 92, added. “When we first started, we were competing,” Corlis said. “We were putting in money and we were winning balls. We did that one year, and then we decided that we all had plenty of balls and so we wanted to just play for the joy of playing golf.” Though they no longer put in money, the group was given a shopping bag full of balls by a woman from the 18-hole group, Corlis explained. “So sometimes, like this morning, I gave everybody a ball and gave them the instructions that when we got to seven, which is the water hole, that they could either hit the ball or just go up and throw the ball in the lake.” “I putted out, and then I threw the ball in the lake,” Ginny Schoeff, 93, said. The women in the group, all Clarkston residents, have many decades of golf between them. Corlis alone has played for more than 50 years. “My son was about 6 (when she started), and he is now 60 years old,” she said. Eschewing competition now doesn’t mean they were never competitive,

M O N D A Y, O C T O B E R 1 , 2 0 1 2 Corlis pointed out. “I think all of us have played competitive golf,” she said. “I know Mary had a handicap of, what, 10?” “Only for a few weeks,” Mary Jackman, 78, replied modestly. “That was my lowest. Usually (it was) 11, 12, 13 — like in there.” “And about a hundred thousand years ago I was low net in the Washington (State) Women’s Golf (Association) Tournament,” Corlis said. All the women in the group are members of Clarkston Golf and Country Club, and most play a couple times each week in addition to the nine holes they play together on Wednesday mornings. “It’s a good sport,” Phyllis Himmelright, 84, said. “You can play it when you’re young, you can play it when you’re old. Play it if you’re married or single.” “And (this is) a wonderful group because it’s a group of people that you associate with that you don’t associate (with) at any other time,” Corlis said. “It just gives you another group of friends to have.” Corlis is the group’s de facto organizer. “Well I guess it’s my job,” she said. “I seem to assume it is. Everybody helps. I’m just sort of … bossy.” “(It’s) communication,” Himmelright offered. “Thank you,” Corlis said. “It’s a community-type thing. We just work together.” Corlis comes up with different ways to assign partners, for example asking the ladies to toss a tee to the ground and pair up with whomever the tee points to. “I’m the stove up one around here,” Jackman said, chuckling, as she got up from her chair, on Corlis’ orders, to demonstrate the tee toss. “And sometimes we have little slips of paper and we draw numbers, and we’re really confused because we can’t remember if we’re supposed to remember the first number or the second number, huh Vivian?” Corlis said, laughing. This morning, she explained, they’d used initials and gone by alphabetical order. “We manage to bumble through it,” she said. “So you can tell it’s a very relaxed group.” The women — there usually are between six and eight players — keep things unofficial, including the group’s name. “Doug (Phares, the course’s golf pro) said that our name should be Golden Girls, and I asked them how they liked that and nobody came up with anything better,” Corlis said, then addressed the group: “Is there something better you would like? Or worse?” The ensuing discussion ranged from Golden Nines to Nine-hole Group: “Leave the ‘girls’ out,” someone said. Corlis said Phares has been very accommodating, allowing each woman to take a cart onto the course instead of the usual policy of two per cart. And the other women at the club who still play 18 holes are supportive as well. “They make us feel like we still belong,” she said.  Tatko can be reached at mtatko@lmtribune.com or (208) 848-2244

Did you know:

To prevent influenza:

329736AB-12

Flu season is almost here. You have seen advertising encouraging everyone 6 months of age and older to get a flu vaccine, and the recommendation is to get one as soon as they become available. Protection should last up to a year. Despite evidence that the vaccine saves lives, and prevents hospitalization and flu-related pneumonia, many people are hesitant to be vaccinated. Some are worried about complications and reactions to various components of the Commentary vaccine. The usual complications are mild, and include soreness and redness at the site of the injection. Less commonly, hoarseness, red eyes, cough, fever, aches, headache and fatigue occur. These last symptoms have prompted some to think they have contracted influenza from the vaccine, which is not possible with the inactivated vaccine. These symptoms are mild and last a maximum of 48 hours. Others are worried about a mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, used in multi-dose vials to prevent contamination. There is no evidence of any harm occurring from this preservative. For those still concerned, there are preservative-free single doses available. In 1976, the swine flu vaccine was associated with an increased risk of Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a serious illness that has not been associated with any flu vaccine since then. In the years in which the match is good between the viruses used to make vaccine and the actual viruses causing seasonal flu, the vaccine prevents influenza in 50 percent to 70 percent of people. For those protected, it prevents flu-associated hospitalization, pneumonia and death. Ninety percent of flu-caused deaths are in those older than 64. If you get the flu, talk to your physician about antiviral medication.

Coffee with Monica and the Bills

It was a recent smoky morning when I decided to have coffee at Jack in the Box in Lewiston and search out a new column. Much to my surprise there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as many people there as I thought there would be, but I was in luck. In the corner there was a jovial group sitting and chatting, so I introduced myself and asked if I might join them. The group warned me there might be some language used that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be allowed in print but Monica (the only lady in the group) said she would use her cane on them if they got too out of hand. At the table with Monica were three Bills (one being her husband) and some other guys whose names I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, for some unknown reason, write down. As I listened to the conversations at the table I

couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help wondering, and should have asked, exactly what brought this group together. I did ask how often they met at Jack in the Box and was told â&#x20AC;&#x153;five mornings a week, and then on Saturdays, and most Sunday afternoons,â&#x20AC;? by one of the Bills. At one point the conversation turned to politics, as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure many conversations today do with the elections just a little more than a month away. But the difference in this conversation was there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a heated debate. Even when they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all agree with what someone said they remained calm and polite â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something that is amiss in most political conversations. Politicians could take lessons from this group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an angry discussion just because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree. They did agree on most points though and perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what kept it civil. One point they all agreed on came when one of them said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who wants that job?â&#x20AC;? while talking about the presidency and the invasion into your personal life that comes with it. The morningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversation topics included the Nez Perce County Fair, which was just getting started, and numerous people and businesses in town. At one point they passed around a couple of pieces of paper, which Monica said were the jokes that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare repeat out loud. That morning I learned a little about the abandoned well situation in the LewistonClarkston Valley. Ads about abandoned wells have been running in the Tribune and on TV, and one of the guys in the group is a well digger. It was interesting to get another piece of valley history mixed in with some geology.

I regularly learn so much from these outings and always take something away from the people I have met while doing this column. During this particular outing, I realized just how important being around people your age becomes the older you get. Your paths may not cross when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going about your daily lives, working and raising a family. Then there comes the day when you find friendship with people Commentary whom you may or may not have known in your younger years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; others who know the same things you know, who have seen the same things you once saw. Someone who, perhaps only because of the town you live in, shares a similar past that you can now talk about. I find the thought of that comforting somehow and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to find my coffee group some day. I can see me being the Monica of the group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; cane close at hand.

(The latter three-video series has a total of about 2,300 views.) Tammy Gordon, director of social communications for AARP, says that compared with many other videos on the site, “Call Me Maybe” was relatively inexpensive
