eal estate developers Matthew and David Palumbo of Palumbo Properties recently presented their proposal to construct a 32-unit luxury apartment building on the site currently occupied by the Bali Hai Restaurant. According to other me dia sources, a similar proposal was brought forward in 2016 by developer Gregg Monastiero for a 68-unit building; however, resident opposition caused those plans to be scrapped. During the June 26 meeting at the Merritt Center, the Palumbo brothers tried to appease residents, saying they have always lived in Lynnfield and used to play baseball behind the Bali Hai. They also said they have fostered a close relationship with Bali Hai owner James Yee and his family, who have been in business

on Moulton Drive since 1994. The Palumbos said they are planning to purchase the property next month. The Yee family will then need two months to close down the restaurant, which would be demolished, and construction on the apartment building would begin in 2019. The Palumbos said 24 units would be two-bedroom apartments with monthly rents ranging between $3,100 and $3,300. The remaining eight units would be one-bedroom apartments with monthly rents ranging between $2,200 and $2,300. Stephen Sousa, principal of Sousa Design Architects, said the trees that separate the restaurant from Newhall Park would remain untouched during the construction process. He also said there would be 68 parking spaces available

returning to the Lynnfield Public Schools this fall as she has accepted an offer to become Wakefield’s new assistant superintendent of schools. She is slated to start her new job on Sept. 1. “I accepted this position because I viewed it as an exciting opportunity for professional growth,” she said. “I am excited to work with teachers, curriculum coordinators and principals in a different capacity.” Although there is “some crossover” between her current job in Lynnfield and her new job in Wakefield, Mauro also described how it will be different. “My new position will be a bit more broad in terms of my focus areas,” she said. “I will work more directly with curriculum coordinators, principals, assistant principals and teachers to support the superintendent and district initiatives.” Mauro also said she has previous experience working with Wakefield Superintendent Douglas Lyons. Before coming to Lynnfield in 2011, Mauro had been the chairman of the district-wide Special Education Team in Reading. At the time, Lyons was the principal of Reading’s Parker Middle School.

“I know the type of leader that Doug Lyons is and I am inspired to support his district initiatives,” said Mauro. Prior to working in Lynnfield and Reading, Mauro held positions in Marblehead and Swampscott, having been an educator for the past 17 years. Mauro said she decided to become a teacher during her time at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she majored in English with a concentration in elementary education.

She then went on to earn her master’s degree in education from Salem State University. Looking back, Mauro said she could not have asked for a better group of colleagues during her seven years in Lynnfield. “It is a remarkable group and I will miss them so much,” she said. “I will miss all of the wonderful students and families who I have been lucky to have collaborated with over the years. Lynnfield is a very special place.” Superintendent Jane Tremblay, in her letter to the community, praised Mauro for everything she has done for the district. “Ms. Mauro has been an integral member of our professional learning community over the past seven years,” said Tremblay. “As a result of her strong leadership and unwavering commitment, our district’s special education programs are considered to be among the best in the area and across the state.” Tremblay also said Mauro’s position has been posted and interviews will be conducted throughout the summer. “This is a critical position within our school district; therefore, it is imperative that the best candidate be appointed to support the continuous growth of our students,” she said.

ooper Marengi, a 2018 Lynnfield High School graduate and baseball team captain, received a $1,000 scholarship from Wakefield Co-operative Bank at the team’s end of season banquet last month. Marengi was selected by the coaching team for his upbeat

personality and passion for the game, and for being a role model to underclassmen. “Cooper’s coaches and peers respect him tremendously; he’s a natural leader on and off the field and donates his time to mentor and be a role model to kids in need and kids going

through difficult times,” said Michael Juliano, the treasurer of Lynnfield Baseball Boosters. “He truly exemplifies what the annual Wakefield Co-operative Bank Scholarship is all about.” Marengi is slated to play baseball at Endicott College in Beverly this fall.

Abutters continue battle against Boston Clear Water By Christopher Roberson


ynnfield residents Mary Bliss, Andrew Gallucci, Willis O’Brien and John Sievers remain in a struggle to have the Boston Clear Water Company (BCWC) removed from 165 Lowell St. In May of this year, they filed three zoning complaints with Building Inspector Jack Roberto, saying BCWC had violated the town’s zoning bylaws by operating at a site that is not commercially zoned. Bliss, Gallucci, O’Brien and Sievers also said that if the site was ever commercially zoned, two years had passed without it being used for that purpose. Therefore, they said, “the use is no longer lawful and is not protected from zoning enforcement as a lawful preexisting non-conforming use, nor can the use of the property revert to commercial.” However, Roberto denied their request to take action, which prompted Bliss, Gallucci, O’Brien and Sievers to bring the matter before the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) on July 10. “There is no evidence that the site supports a commercial use,” said Attorney Jason Kimball, counsel for the abutters, during the meeting. “In excess of two years, there was no commercial use.” He said BCWC’s predecessor, the Pocahontas Spring Water Company, opened on the site in 1961 and was owned by the LeColst family. During its 51

years in operation, Pocahontas had a walk-up, self-serve water-filling station, four employees, one sign and one delivery truck. Kimball said the LeColst family voluntarily closed the company on March 29, 2012, after discovering that the water’s PH level was above the limit set by the state Department of Environmental Protection. Sievers confirmed that March 29, 2012, was the last day that Pocahontas was in business. “We had a last drink from the spring and had our picture in the paper,” he said. The property was then purchased by BCWC in June 2014. “They only sought a permit to sell water, not to bottle water,” said Kimball. However, he said that in July 2015, the state Department of Public Health issued a license for BCWC to have a water vending machine. Attorney Brian McGrail, counsel for BCWC, urged the ZBA to disregard Kimball’s presentation. “None of that’s relevant, it really doesn’t matter,” he said, adding that Pocahontas did not cease operations on March 29, 2012. McGrail suggested that the board uphold Roberto’s decision and keep BCWC out of the matter. “Boston Clear Water is not a party to this; stop the witch hunt,” he said, adding that the abutters were appealing Roberto’s decision. He reminded the board that Roberto issued the same decision one year ago, which

was unsuccessfully appealed by the abutters. McGrail said that in November 2017, Town Counsel Thomas Mullen regarded the first appeal as being “fatally flawed.” “These people don’t like to take the answer ‘no,’” said McGrail. In addition, he said the abutters have since signed a petition against BCWC on behalf of every Lynnfield resident. “Who are they to judge what the entire town wants? The game needs to end,” he said. The ZBA will revisit the matter during its August meeting.

Lynnfield Roads By Katy Shea


ccording to a recently released report, one of Lynnfield’s own traffic intersections ranks 11th in the list of the top 200 intersections for crashes. Where is this intersection? Where Salem Street and Route One intersects. It achieved this honor by seeing more than 300 crashes in one calendar year (2015). The report is authored by the State Highway Division and funded by the federal government. Lynnfield’s road system is also surprising dense given our limited area. On about six square miles our little town manages to fit 161.27 lane miles of roadway. According to Travel Math, our road system is comparable to taking a ride from Boston to Augusta, Maine. So who takes care of our roads? Maintaining these roads is no easy endeavor and the Town’s taxpayers are responsible for maintaining approximately 132.12 miles. About two and a half miles of road are private ways. The rest of the mileage, 26.43 miles, is covered directly by the State Highway Division. About 20 of those miles are on the federal highway system, Route One and Route 95/128, so the federal government bears the entire cost to maintain, clean, and repair them. Does the state provide money to maintain Lynnfield’s roads? The Town’s taxpayers are not entirely alone

in this burden. Since 1973, the State’s Chapter 90 program provides a pro rata share of state highway money to the Town based on total roadway miles based. There is a predetermined funding formula that assists in Lynnfield’s road maintenance. For example, this year on March 1st, the State Highway Division announced that Lynnfield would receive $411,650, once Governor Baker announced a $200M highway funding bill. So what do Lynnfield Taxpayers contribute to road maintenance? The Town’s highway expenditures are much higher than the state reimbursement would suggest. This year Town Meeting voted $1.4M for the Town’s highway department plus $500,000 in the capital budget for roads. This year’s voted expenditure represents level funding for capital, level funding for road expenses and a $60K decrease in road division salaries. Just a couple of years ago at Town Meeting, the DPW director was offered more money for roads, but due to equipment availability issues, he wasn’t sure they could spend it all. Lynnfield currently leads the TriTown Consortium under which three towns buy DPW materials together to save in bulk. Including the state reimbursement, this year we will spend $2,327,074 on our roads. That is estimated to be $17,613.33 per mile of road of which the state reimburses approximately less than

one third. This year, the Town speeds on Summer Street, afhas announced it will work fect homeowners property, on much of Lowell St., as well adversely affect the tree canas Crest, Prospect, Crescent, opy and potentially change much of Highland Ave., and the Bucolic New England setPleasant, Longbow, and Ab- ting that Lynnfield currently bey Lane.

was downhill. “It was a nice way to finish it,” he said. John Brzezenski, 49, of Reading, said there were a couple of hills that presented a “moderate challenge.” However, Brzezenski said he still enjoyed running in the race for the first time. Another first-time participant, Matthew Pagos, 32, of Lynnfield, said the course was “fairly easy.” He also appreciated those residents who greeted the runners with garden hoses along the way. “That was refreshing, it was nice that they came out,” said Pagos. This was also the first year for Christian Sullivan, 34, of Lynnfield, and his wife, Christine. “It was really cool; we just moved here a year ago,” said Christian. Despite the heat, Logistics Coordinator Susie Cleary said, the event still went off without a hitch. “Even with the elevated temperatures, people came out in support,” she said, adding that the number of runners had increased by approximately 30 percent compared to last year. “The heat created no significant problem, just sweaty runners.” However, nothing was left to chance. “A line of communication was set up between the water stops and the start and finish area to alert of any potential problems with overheated runners,” said Cleary. Race Organizer Andrea Bracconier said the race has been manually timed since it began in 1967, which she said “adds to the excitement.” “It is a success because of the great volunteers that keep it moving,” said Bracconier. “For the past 51 years, the town comes out and joins in the fun, whether running, volunteering or cheering runners on.”

Reid’s Ride 14 years stronger together


uly brings two things to mind: The 4th of July bringing independence to all, and Reid’s Ride giving ALL the opportunity to fight the cancers that have taken the lives of too many loved ones. Reid’s Ride, a 28-Mile Bike Ride on Sunday July 15, 2018 travels along the Massachusetts north shore and is held each year on the third Sunday in July.  It is a do-able, healthful, fun, affordable and costeffective way to participate in the battle against adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancers.  The funds raised by Reid’s Ride provide financial support to clinical and scientific programs targeted at finding improved treatments – and someday a cure – for the

cancers that strike AYAs. The funds raised by Reid’s Ride since 2005 are responsible for opening two AYA Cancer Programs & Clinics which are focused on conducting clinical research and providing specialized medical care for AYA cancer patients. The work of the AYA Cancer Program at Tufts was featured in a 2017 episode of Chronicle (WCVB TV Boston); in June 2018 the episode was awarded an Emmy.  The Annual support from our Premier sponsor, Dunkin Brands, began in 2005 starting with a small group of Dunkin Donuts franchisees and their stores.  This expanded each year with more stores along the north and south shores of Massachusetts coming to-

gether in partnership with Reid’s Ride. This partnership is pioneering what is now equal access across age groups to cancer care and clinical advances.  It has changed the course of history for AYA’s diagnosed with cancer.  The partnership of Reid’s Ride and Dunkin Donuts, together with hundreds of Reid’s Ride volunteers, is allowing Reid’s Ride and the Reid R Sacco AYA Cancer Alliance to become a “voice of the people” in bringing, for the first time ever, directed clinical care and treatment to our most promising age group diagnosed with cancer today Our mission continues to bring better care and treatments to each adolescent and young adult battling can-

cer so that each is given the chance to become a survivor of this devastating disease. “The best part about Reid’s Ride and all that we continues to accomplish through the Annual Ride is truly through the friendships and memories we’ve made with each other. We are so grateful to Reid’s Ride long time dedicated supporters since 2005 and the everyday new supporter, all growing and working together toward the ultimate goal to end cancer.” The theme for this year’s Ride is Star Trek.   There’s a famous quote from Star Trek that reflects the mindset of Reid’s Ride: “Things are only impossible, until they are not”.  Reid’s Ride and the Reid R. Sacco AYA Cancer Alliance are

making strides that seemed impossible just a few ago into realities today for current and future generations of AYA cancer patients. And we will continue our work until we’ve made something else a reality: A cancer-free future for all generations of AYAs. Again what differentiates Reid’s Ride from all other Charities is that we are an ALL volunteer Cancer Alliance.  An example of that is, we, Lorraine and Gene Sacco the Cofounder of the Alliance and Ride Directors our every day is volunteered as is each of the AYA cancer alliance. This insures that every dollar raised is truly being directed to the patient. We like to encourage any Sponsors or Riders to join us!

Lynnfield Williamsport all-stars battle back to thump Salem, secure spot in District 16 championship round By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield Little League Williamsport all-star team had its back against the proverbial wall in the District 16 losers’ bracket final Tuesday night, July 10, but as past district champions they know how to fight to live another day. Coach Matt Adamo’s team won on the 10- and 11-yearold level the last two years, working toward playing in this moment in the granddaddy of all Little League tournaments. They weren’t about to let it all slip away, and as a result they exploded past Salem, 9-3, to get another shot at Peabody West, the only

team that has beaten them in this year’s tourney. The Lynnfield boys didn’t play their best baseball against Peabody West last week, losing by the lopsided score of 16-2. At that point, they had to fight their way out of the losers’ bracket, which they did convincingly on Tuesday night. “ We only got t wo hits against Peabody West, and we also gave up an uncharacteristically high amount of walks, but just the same it’s still nice to get another crack at them,” said Adamo after Tuesday’s Salem game. “[Peabody West] is a nice, incredibly well-balanced team,” he added. “I think we

beat many of the same players when they were 10.” The local diamond nine faced Peabody West in the district championship game Thursday night, July 12, at Wyoma in Lynn (after press deadline). If they were able to even the score against Peabody West, Lynnfield returns to Wyoma Friday night to play the winner-take-all game to determine which team moves on to the Sweet 16 in the state. Christian Rosa pitched solidly against Salem to earn the win and advance his teammates to play another day. Rosa went 5.2-innings, striking out 14 along the way. “[Rosa] was just fantas-

tic against Salem,” said Adamo. Salem scored the first run of the game in the top half of the opening stanza, but Lynnfield got it right back and then some to take a 5-1 lead after one. Nick Groussis led things off with a single. Tyler Adamo then walked, and Rosa was hit by a pitch to load the bases. A Salem passed ball and subsequent throwing error followed that resulted in two runs. Nick Hubbard was then credited with his first of three doubles in this game that knocked in a run. He drove home two more runs later on in the contest. Jarret Scoppettuolo also doubled in a run

in the opening stanza. Lynnfield padded its lead with three more runs in the second. Tyler Adamo was credited with a sacrifice fly to account for another run. Anthony Grabau singled in a run, and Hubbard produced another RBI with another double. Dan Dorman also contributed offensively to the winning cause with a pair of base hits. Lynnfield’s ace pitcher Nate Lopez got the nod on the hill to start Thursday’s critical contest, and they were hoping it leads to the winnertake-all game Friday night to make it three in a row in district championships for this group of all-stars.

~ Letter to the Editor ~

Against the Rail Trail Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the June 20, 2018 letter in a local newspaper regarding the Rails to Trails from the medical professionals. I agree with their comments that exercise is beneficial to physical and mental health. My family and I have lived in Lynnfield for over 40 years and we exercise regularly, even during our harsh winter months. I am able to walk on our street and sidewalks because they are plowed. Most trails are not, but if the trail was plowed, it would be an added expense to our ever increasing tax bills. There are bikers, walkers, runners, baby carriages, dog walkers and etc.

all over town. We have miles of sidewalks and a multitude of safe neighborhoods in Lynnfield where we can enjoy these activities. What I have realized is that exercise is a Choice not an infrastructure, and Lynnfield has served us well. I would like to point out a few other issues. There would be only two entrances to the proposed trail, Pillings Pond Road and Summer Street, and the majority of people in town would have to ride their bikes on the streets of Lynnfield to access them. Isn’t the argument of safety then defeated? Or if they drive their cars, they would have to park on the abutting roads. There just isn’t

adequate parking for both residents and non-residents to drive their cars to the trail. Also, the Department of Environmental Protection has concluded that all railroad beds have some kind of contamination, and if they are disturbed, they can be dangerous. If we disturb the railroad beds to build the trail, we run the risk of possibly contaminating our water and air. Please keep in mind that half of Lynnfield is on well water. We exercise, we eat organic to stay healthy, but then the Rail to Trail could expose us to contaminated water and air. The MBTA will not permit us to test the railroad bed before we

sign the lease. The MBTA also requires that the town of Lynnfield will hold the MBTA harmless. Doesn’t this make you just a little suspicious? Newburyport found contamination during construction of their Rail to Trail even after they tested the railroad bed, and a trail in Miami has been shut down because of contamination they found after millions of dollars were spent to build the trail and millions of dollars for the cleanup. It could happen here as well. DEP felt so strongly about possible contamination that they published a white paper entitled “Best Management Practic-

es for Controlling Exposure to Soil during the Development of Rails to Trails” which outlines actions a town should take before committing to signing the MBTA contract. These actions need to be followed. There are many factors that need to be considered before we commit to building the proposed Rail to Trail, and every citizen of Lynnfield should be informed. I believe we should do all we can to keep our environment clean and to minimize the number of environmental cancer cases here in our beautiful town. Gill Giugliano

Beach City readies for 15th annual International Sand Sculpting Festival Special performance by Cirque De Soleil to highlight event By Sara Brown


he most awaited for summer event is near as the sand drops this Friday for the 2018 International Sand Sculpting Festival at Revere Beach. The 15th annual festival will showcase live music, food trucks, fireworks and of course sandcastles. This year’s theme is literacy and the centerpiece will be a 20 feet tall 30 feet wide sculpture of beloved characters from children’s’ books. “We try to improve each year from the next,” said Chairperson of the festival John Hamel. “This year is going to be the best one yet.” The competition will feature 15 sculptures as well as five duos

from around the world. Hamel said the festival has grown over the years and is the third largest event in the state behind the Boston Marathon and the Big E festival. The annual festival draws upwards of 1,000,000 spectators from all over the country. “It’s become a New England tradition,” he said. “People from all over come to Revere to see these beautiful works of art and enjoy the beauty of the beach.” The centerpiece will start being built this Saturday and the competitors can start their masterpieces next Wednesday. The awards will be given out next Saturday and afterwards participants can enjoy a fireworks display. There will also be a special performance on Saturday from

Luzia by Cirque De Soleil. “This year, Cirque de Soleil Luzia will be performing a 10 to 15-minute performance for the festival on Saturday at noon at the main stage. This will include seven of their artists performing some of their juggling and football dance acts. Luzia is at Suffolk Downs from June 27 to August 12 and we are excited that they have agreed to share some of their artistry at the festival,” said Hamel. Hamel said he is always amazed by what the sand artists create. “It’s simply incredible,” he said. “I don’t know how they do it. To see them create these beautiful works of art out of sand is breathtaking.

Hamel’s favorite part is seeing Revere through non-resident’s eyes. “A lot of people that come here it’s their first time,” he said. “They are always like ‘wow, I didn’t know Revere Beach was so beautiful. I didn’t know Revere was so nice.’” Hamel believes the event gives the city a chance to show what it has to offer. “I grew up in Revere and I have always said Revere doesn’t always get its fair shake,” he said. “This showcases not just Revere Beach but Revere as a whole and how wonderful it is to live here as well as visit.” Hamel also said how proud he was of how the festival has grown over the years.

“There are so many different things people can do on a weekend and that we have become a premiere event in the state is really valuable for the city,” said Hamel. The festivities take place from July 20th to the 22nd. Hours for the 2018 Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival on Friday, July 20th, and Saturday, July 21st are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday, July 22nd 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. It is recommended to use the MBTA and public transportation to and from this event. The MBTA Blue Line can be taken to the Wonderland or Revere Beach stops. Parking is also available at the Wonderland Garage.

Masshealth Due Process Violations Exposed In The Maas/Hirvi Cases


n a June 22, 2018 decision, Justice H. Douglas of the Suffolk County Superior Court rendered a key decision essentially making it clear that MassHealth must provide a clear reason as to why an applicant is being denied MassHealth benefits in the context of an irrevocable trust. Currently, MassHealth simply sends out a denial notice stating that the applicant has excess assets. No clear reason is stated on the notice as to what provision(s) in the trust lead to the conclusion that all of the assets held in the trust are a countable resource for eligibility purposes. Justice Douglas, who has an outstanding administrative law background, wrote an excellent and well-reasoned opinion making it clear that federal law requires a clear statement of the specific reasons supporting the intended actions to be taken by any administrative agency, including MassHealth. He goes on further to state that the reasons for the de-

nial must be timely and adequate and must comply with 42 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 431.210. The current approach by MassHealth is to submit its legal memorandum the day of the hearing. Justice Douglas stated this does not provide the applicant enough time to adequately prepare for the hearing. He stated it does not matter that the hearing is often left open giving the applicant additional time to present his or her response to the denial notice. Often times, a hearing date is not even scheduled until months after the denial notice is first issued. I currently have a case where we filed for an appeal over six months ago. No hearing date as of yet. Six months later we do not know which provision(s) of the trust is being challenged. Justice Wilkins went out of his way to let MassHealth know it must be timely and clear in the reasons for its denial notice. If not, the denial notice will not be in compliance with federal and state law. If that is the case, an action may be brought to obtain immediate approval of MassHealth benefits. The fight for fair dealings and administrative consistency continues. Members of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys are consistently advocating for their elderly clients. It’s a cause worth fighting for.

red reflector. Current law and the new law both require a white light in the front. The bill classifies several groups, including pedestrians, utility workers, first responders and cyclists, as “vulnerable road users.” The measure requires the operator of a motor vehicle that is passing a vulnerable user to maintain a distance of at least three feet when traveling at 30 miles per hour or less and an additional foot of space for every ten miles per hour above 30 miles per hour.Current law only requires motor vehicle operators to pass at “a safe distance and at a reasonable and proper speed.” Another provision requires a vehicle that is overtaking a vulnerable user or other vehicle to use all or part of an adjacent lane, cross-

ing the centerline if necessary, when it cannot pass at a safe distance in the same lane and only when it is safe to do so. The legislation also requires certain large vehicles or trailers that are purchased or leased by the state after January 1, 2019 to be equipped with lateral protective devices, convex mirrors and crossover mirrors. “We need to keep working year after year to achieve a future in which traffic fatalities get as close as possible to zero,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont), lead sponsor of the bill in the Senate. “This bill will help us move in the right direction.” “We have seen too many unnec-

Savvy Senior by Jim Miller

Can a Debt Collector Take My Social Security Benefits? Dear Savvy Senior, Can my Social Security benefits be garnished if I have some outstanding debts? I just turned 62 and would like to start collecting my retirement benefits, but want to find this out before I apply. Worried Retiree Dear Worried, Whether your Social Security benefits are garnishable or not depends on whom you owe. Banks and other financial creditors, for example, can’t touch your Social Security checks. But if Uncle Sam is collecting on a debt, some of your benefits are fair game. Here’s what you should know. Creditor Protections If you have credit card debts, medical bills, unpaid personal loans or pay day loans, you’ll be happy to know that your Social Security benefits are safe from your creditors. Section 207 of the Social Security Act prohibits debt collectors or a bankruptcy court from dipping into your bank account to take Social Security money for purposes of paying off what you owe. Supplemental Security Income (SSI), veterans benefits, federal employee and civil service retirement benefits, and benefits administered by the Railroad Retirement Board Administration can’t be touched either. But be aware that your creditors can still take legal action against you to recover what you owe them, and depending on your state’s law, they may be able to garnish your wages and tap into other allowable assets, if you have any. Government Garnishment If, however, you owe money to Uncle Sam, it’s a very different story. The federal government can garnish a portion of your Social Security benefits for repayment of several types of debts, including federal income taxes, federal student loans, state-ordered child support and alimony, nontax debt owed to other federal agencies, defaulted federal home loans and certain civil penalties. (If you receive SSI, those benefits cannot be garnished under any circumstance.) How much can actually be taken depends on the type of debt you owe. In most situations, the government can pull 15 percent of your benefits to cover your debt, but under the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996, it must leave you at least $750 each month. That is, unless the levy is for federal income taxes. In that case, the government isn’t required to leave $750 behind. The other exception is for child support or alimony payments. Depending on your state laws, the court may be able to take half of your benefits or more to pay your obligations to your children or ex-spouse. If you think your Social Security benefits might be raided to pay overdue bills, you need to address the problem – don’t ignore it. Most government agencies are happy to work with you so long as you’re willing to work with them. The government typically sends several letters about a debt before it takes action. The final letter will inform you of the intent to levy Social Security payments, and after that, you have 30 days to contact the agency and work out a payment plan. Get Help To get a handle on your debt problems, consider contacting a nonprofit financial counseling agency, which offers free and low-cost services on managing financial problems. To locate a credible agency in your area, use the National Foundation for Credit Counseling website at or call 800-388-2227. You also need to make sure you’re not missing out on any financial assistance programs. The National Council on Aging’s website ( contains a database of more than 2,500 federal, state and local programs that can help seniors with prescription drug costs, health care, food, utilities, and other basic needs. The site will help you locate programs that you may be eligible for and will show you how to apply. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
