ANNIVERSARY From Page 1A “We even found a chair on the side of the road and kept it for a while until we found some retro fabric and reupholstered it. It is one of our favorite pieces.” It is not unusual for customer to comment, “This is what Aunt Bessie had,” said Will. “People love the store because what we have is different and unique. We enjoy giving pieces a second life.” And that is why they named their store “Second Appreciation.”

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

“Seventy-five percent of the items in the store found us, or we found them,” Cole said. “Real wood furniture is hard to come by these days, so we try to refinish it or just oil it. On occasion, we will paint the item if it is laminated. But those instances are rare.” “We do not do consignment anymore, but sometimes local artists reach out to us. That is how we met Tammy Lafitte and we have some of her work on display, including tapestries and mixed media.” In addition, they have an old icebox from the Paul

Neisler home on Gaston Street. “We were also given an aluminum cabinet with a cast iron top by the new owners of that house, and we now use it,” said Will. “We cater to folks who are looking for interesting and unusual items you just do not see in the stores anymore, and for those who appreciate upcycling when they decorate their homes. Of course, folks can always stop in and take look around.” said Cole. One thing is for certain, when you walk through their store you will find an item that transports you back in time.

Veteran moves forward in mechanical drafting In 2015, Jeff Bradley received a medical retirement from the U.S. Marine Corps after suffering a life-altering injury to his dominant hand while working on the landing gear of a KC-130-J, an aerial refueling tanker. Doctors were not optimistic, but after several operations and two years of therapy Bradley was able to keep his hand. “After injuring my hand, I was told by doctors I would not be able to work anymore. I didn’t take that lightly; I was only 27 years old at the time with a wife and three kids.” When Bradley saw a documentary on television about an engineer working for a NASCAR team who was missing both his

JEFF BRADLEY arms, he thought “if he can do that while missing both his limbs, I can do that as well.” Bradley had taken mechanical drafting courses while attending Kings

Mountain High School and said, “If it wasn’t for 9/11, I would have continued my education in Mechanical Drafting after high school.” So, after retiring from the Marines and returning home to Cleveland County, he enrolled in the Associate in Applied Science in Mechanical Drafting program at CCC. When asked about his experience in the program, Bradley said “The training I received was great. All my instructors are subject matter experts in this field, and they came from the mechanical drafting field. They all prepared us for what we would expect in the work force. They gave us all the knowledge and the tools to help us suc-

ceed.” Not only did his instructors prepare him for the workforce, but they also helped him find an internship that turned into a fulltime position. “I was able to obtain college credit, gain experience and work all at the same time.” Bradley used his degree in mechanical drafting as a steppingstone and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology with a concentration in Industrial Engineering. These days he is designing parts on the computer and cutting them out of sheet metal on a fiber laser. He makes items for a wide variety of applications including bakery systems, railroads, and the aerospace industry.

Gov. Cooper proclaims April World Autism Month in NC Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed April as World Autism Month in North Carolina to raise awareness and recognize individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their families and organizations working to support them. “People with autism offer so much to our communities, our workforce and our state,” said Governor Cooper. “They and their families deserve our support and understanding as they overcome the challenges of ASD, and I am grateful for the North Carolina organizations working hard to raise awareness and provide resources.” Autism spectrum disorder is a neurological and developmental disorder that begins early in childhood and consists of a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. A 2020 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the percentage of 8-year-olds that have been identified as having autism in North Carolina—1 in 39, or 2.5 percent—exceeds that national average of 1.85 percent. Compared to other areas in the U.S. that were monitored for ASD prevalence, N.C. had the highest proportion of children with ASD who had received a comprehensive evaluation performed by age 3. March 2022 marked the third anniversary of Governor Cooper’s Executive Order 92: Employment First for North Carolinians with Disabilities. The executive

order charged state agencies with facilitating welcoming environments across state government where individuals with disabilities could successfully participate in competitive, integrated employment. State employees have credited the designation of North Carolina as an Employment First state with creating a more supportive environment for state employees with disabilities. In 2018, Governor Cooper and the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) launched LiNC-IT, the first statewide neurodiversity internship program. LiNC-IT supports early career individuals with ASD and helps employers find the talent they need and develop neurodiversity programs to support that talent. Since the program’s launch, over 135 individuals have been referred to the program and seventy have completed or are currently in a paid internship. Over 90 percent of participants who completed their internship are now in full time employment. The North Carolina Department of Public Safety has also hosted free trainings for law enforcement leaders and first responders to learn best practices on interacting with North Carolinians with ASD.

We’re grateful to the Governor for his support of student success.” “NCICU and our 36 independent colleges and universities deeply appreciate this innovative support for North Carolina students,” said Hope Williams, President of the NC Independent Colleges, and Universities. “These funds will make it possible for students to catch up and accelerate progress toward their college degree as they recover from challenges created by the pandemic.”

Has it a God declared Jesus to be vital place in our hearts as the Son of God. Through well? Do we celebrate this the ascension, God showed event, or even emphasize it Jesus to be Lord. “Know for certain,” preached Peter in our Christian worship? We do believe in the as- on Pentecost, “that God has cension. And we do recite made Him both Lord and

Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified” (Acts 2:36). To be Lord is to be ruler in heaven. To show Jesus to be ruler, He was “exalted to the right hand of God” (Acts 2:33; 5:31). David prophesied of Christ’s ascension saying, “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet’” (Ps 110:1; see also Mt 22:44). In our worship, we ought to envision and exult in our Lord Jesus “who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens” (Heb 8:1). Therefore, we sing,

Crown Him with many crowns, The Lamb upon the throne. Second, Christ ascended to give us the gift of the Holy Spirit. Upon returning to His Father, Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit. He had said to the apostles in the upper room, “It is to your advantage that I go away . . . if I go, I will send Him to you” (Jn 16:7). And He did! On Pentecost, Jesus poured forth the Holy Spirit. And He continues to this day to give “the promise of the Holy Spirit” to all who repent and believe in Him (Acts 2:33, 38).

We ought to prize the ascending of Christ into heaven, for it led to the pouring out of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Third, Christ ascended to prepare a place for us. We hear these familiar words of Jesus at funerals: “I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (Jn 14:2– 3). Where is this place Jesus is preparing? In His Father’s house. A house where there “many dwelling places” (Jn 14:2). A house where the KJV de-

scription of “many mansions” seems fitting. For if the earthly tabernacle and temple, prepared by men, were lavished with beauty and glory, how much more so the heavenly dwelling places, prepared by Jesus! Therefore, with the ascended Christ in our mind’s eye, we ought to sing those well-known lyrics, I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop, In that bright land where we’ll never grow old. And we’ll never cease to bow the knee and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Amen!

Vendors were setup in the main auditorium, downstairs, and in the parking lot outside the building. The pleasant weather brought in shoppers, and support was steady throughout the event.

A variety of items from local vendors, from sweets, homemade candles, signs, salsa, honey, and birdhouses were offered for sale. “We are thrilled with today’s event. This is our first year hosting the Spring Vendor Fair, and we are pleased with the participation. We anticipate another event this Fall at the Joy Performance Theater like one we had last year.

COVID variants have evolved in 2022, with the Omicron BA.2.12.1 sublineage becoming stronger in recent weeks. Photo/CDC ROADWORK CONTINUES NEAR THE CASINO – Trenches are being cut to accommodate stormwater pipes. Photos by Loretta Cozart

Unpacking COVID variants Throughout the pandemic, the United States has experienced waves of different variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2 is constantly changing, and new variants of the virus are expected to occur. In early 2021, the Alpha variant emerged, followed by the Delta variant later that summer. In late 2021 and throughout early 2022, the Omicron variant swept across the country and continues to be the predominant variant circulating in the United States. In recent weeks, BA.2.12.1, an Omicron sublineage (sometimes called a “subvariant”), has emerged and is increasing in prevalence in parts of the country. Some early evidence suggests BA.2.12.1 is increasing in

Pipes to fill those trenches are being staged on Compact School Road.

variant proportion faster than other Omicron sublineages. CDC is working to better understand BA.2.12.1, how it spreads, and how well existing treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 work against it. As the virus continues to evolve, CDC expects to see new variants (and their many different lineages and sublineages) emerge and disappear as they compete against each other and other circulating viruses. CDC scientists closely monitor trends in variant proportions and evaluate the public health impact. While new variants may cause increases in cases, especially in localized areas, it is important to remember that we have all the tools needed to prevent COVID-19. CDC’s COVID-19 Community

Levels tool can help communities and people make decisions about prevention strategies. Did you know that variants are made up of multiple lineages (or closely related groups of variants) and sublineages? Each of these variants starts with a parent lineage (for example, BA.1.1.529 for Omicron) followed by descendant lineages, which can all be arranged like a family tree. As the virus spreads, genetic mutations can accumulate and change the characteristics of the virus. Even though most mutations do not affect the characteristics of the virus, genomic surveillance systems detect and track mutations, regardless of whether they pose public health threats.

Congratulations Trees have been cleared and a road cut on the E5 Holdings property.

Kings Mountain High’s baseball team went 3-0 to win last week’s Shelby Easter Tournament at Shelby’s Veteran’s Park. Photos by Gary Smart

Mountaineers go 3-0 to win Shelby Easter Tournament Kings Mountain High junior right hander Wyatt Davis, who has been a valuable closer for the Mountaineers all season, got the start against Crest in the championship game of the annual Shelby Easter Tournament last week and turned in a performance that he and many others may never forget. Davis had a no-hitter going with one out in the seventh inning before giving up a single to the Chargers’ Colby Humphries. He finished with a one-hitter and 8-0 victory against a Charger team that is always in the thick of the running for the Big South Conference and state 3A championships. Peyton Fisher came on to retire the final two Crest batters. Davis walked only two men and struck out 14. “He threw really well,” said Mountaineer head

coach Brad Melton. “He started against Burns earlier in the season but his primary role has been in relief. He is so good coming in and has been lights out all season. He has not had a bad outing yet. Every pitcher on our staff was dominant in the tournament. Charlie (Melton) went six innings in our first tournament game and Zane Brockman did a good job against Burns.” Caleb Broome, who just returned to the starting lineup after an injury, came back with a roar leading the Mountaineers at the plate with 2-for-2 and two runs scored. Colton Mayes and Brockman each had a hit and two runs batted in. Melton gave up just four hits and struck out nine in six innings as the Mountaineers defeated Bandys 7-1 in the opening round. Fisher carried the big stick for the Mountaineers

Wyatt Davis turned in a superb mound performance in an 8-0 win over Crest in the championship game of last week’s Shelby Easter Tournament. with a three-run home run, and got plenty of help from many other KM hitters.

a hit and RBI and Jackson Toney had a hit and RBI. Kenyon Moore, Jacob Ham-

From Page 1B Brockman shook off a shaky start to hurl the Mountaineers past the Burns Bulldogs 9-2 in the semi-finals. Burns loaded the bases in the first and fifth innings but Brockman and his defense worked their way out of the jam. Brockman finished with five strikeouts and also had a big day at the plate. His run-scoring hit in the third inning got the Mountaineers off to a 1-0 lead. The Mountaineers got a lot of breathing room in the fourth, scoring six more runs with the help of four Burns errors. Hamrick and Irby led the Mountaineers at the plate. Both had two hits and two runs batted in. Broome had a hit and RBI and Moore and Brown added a hit apiece.

“Hamrick had a really good tournament,” Coach Melton noted. “He led us with five hits. Brockman had a big week and Brown got some good hits. No one person really stood out, the whole team played well. We moved runners around. It was really a great effort by the whole team. Everybody hit the ball well. “Defensively, we made some very good plays. The defense was really solid. “The last two weeks our bats have been coming around,” he noted. “We’re cutting out strikeouts. We outscored our opponents 24-3 during the three-game series. That’s pretty good against three good teams. The three teams we beat finished 2-1 in the tournament, with their only loss coming to us. We played very well.”

The Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held Saturday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church. Tickets are available from members of the Hall of Fame committee and at Ingram’s Barber Shop in downtown Kings Mountain. Five former Kings Mountain High athletes will be honored, including the late Jim Cloninger, Sheryl Goode, Mariko Feemster, Tony Young and Tandra Leftwich. Cloninger was a standout end and punter on Kings Mountain High’s undefeated Southwestern Conference football team in 1964. He was All-State and played in the prestigious Boys Town all-star game. He went on to play at Appalachian State where he broke the starting lineup as a freshman end and punter. Goode was an All-Conference basketball player at KMHS in 1981 and helped lead the team to its best record in school history at that time. She went on to play at Johnson C. Smith in Charlotte and scored 428 points with 314 rebounds in 91 games. She helped lead the team to a 17-9 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament in 1985. Feemster was one of five great offensive line-

Pinnacle Classical Academy student named to State Superintendent's Advisory Council Amy Brooks, a junior at Pinnacle Classical Academy, has been named to the North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Student Advisory Council (SSAC). The daughter of Derrick and Angela Brooks of Earl, Amy is Pinnacle Classical Academy's Student Government Association Communications Coordinator, a member of National Honor Society, and a member of Spiritual Soaring Ministries, a student Christian organization. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s future,” said North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt, “and if we are going to keep them at the center of every decision, we need to ensure they have an opportunity to directly share feedback, provide recommendations, and give perspective on our state’s education system. I am thrilled to have such an impressive group of students convened as members of the Student Advisory Council, and I look forward to seeing the proposals they put forth.” The Department of Public Instruction said that the SSAC is a strong and diverse group composed of 12 high school students from across the state’s eight education regions, with eight juniors and four seniors. The two-year appointment to the SSAC provides student advisors the opportunity to meet twice per month to discuss education issues affecting students, advocate on behalf of their peers and ul-

During their service, Amy Brooks and the other student advisors will develop two proposals for the state Superintendent’s Office and the State Board of Education to address issues that the students would like to see changed, either through policy or legislation. SSAC advisors have the opportunity not only to share their perspectives as current students but also to provide invaluable insight to state leaders on how to make positive changes within North Carolina’s education system.

GC grad creating better life for herself and daughter In May, Hillary Ford will walk across a stage at CaroMont Health Park surrounded by her Gaston College peers and receive an Associate of Arts degree. If you asked Hillary several years ago what her plans were for the future, she says they certainly would not have included graduating from college. A mother, domestic violence survivor and advocate, and nearly five and a half years sober, Hillary has overcome a lot to get to this point. Despite the challenges Hillary has faced, she says they have made her stronger and led her to Gaston College. A better life for herself and her daughter — that’s what Hillary says got her back in the classroom as an adult after years of working customer service jobs. “I thought I was going to have to keep working these dead-end jobs,” she said. “Now I feel like I can actually do something with my life. I can get a house for me and my daughter and move out of my mom’s house and we can have a full life.” Hillary started her journey at Gaston College two years ago and says her younger self would not believe the student she is today. In high school, she was not a good student and would hardly go to school. Now, she is an outstanding student at Gaston College and soon to be a graduate. “I never thought I would go back to school, have the GPA I have, and be able to help other people,” said Hillary. “I am showing my child that, even though she is on the spectrum, she can do anything she wants to and even if she stopped at high school she can always go back to school.” With school as a challenge in the past, Hillary was nervous to give things a shot in college, but her nerves pushed her to be a better student. She says her success and the fact that she will be graduating is thanks to TRiO Student Support Services at the College, specifically her advisor Adele. With support from

HILLARY FORD TRiO, Hillary was able to secure a grant that helped make her studies possible. She says Adele guided her through the process of applying for grants and scholarships and even helped her plan her steps for after graduation. Once Hillary graduates, she plans to attend Fort Hays State University online and receive her bachelor’s degree in sociology and then go on to pursue a master’s degree. Hillary says she was having a tough time finding a four-year institution that was right for her and that’s when Adele stepped in to help and found Fort Hays. While Hillary knows she wants to help people in whatever jobs she chooses she says her goal is to become an addiction counselor. “I want to tell people my story and let them know that they can overcome things too, and that they’re not alone,” she said. When Hillary looks into the future now, she says she sees a fulfilling life for herself and her daughter – something she was unsure of prior to attending Gaston College. Hillary hopes people who have faced or are currently facing tough times, as she did, know that there are resources out there to help and that they can overcome their challenges too.

FISHING From Page 4B Fishing Program. Here is how it works: The Tackle Loaner Program operates just like a library. Anglers of all ages register at participating parks to receive a tackle loaner ID card, which allows them to check out a rod and reel. Anglers under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian complete the registration form. After returning the loaner rods and reels to

the park office, first-time participants under 16 years of age will receive a free mini-tackle box containing hooks, bobbers, sinkers, and a stringer. Tackle loaner ID cards can be used at other participating sites in North Carolina, but rods and reels must be returned to the original loaner site. Adaptive fishing gear can be loaned to disabled anglers at some TLP sites. The gear types are electric John’s Reels with either a push button or joystick-operating device. Typically, these special reels are

Some sites also offer rod holders for those persons with shoulder problems and or an inability to hold something for an extended time. For individuals with grip problems action life gloves are available in various sizes. These gloves are available for either right or left hands. Current NC tackle loaner sites in our area include Broad River Greenway Office in Cleveland County and Rankin Lake Park Office in Gastonia.

to protect skin and help it heal. WebMD sites many good uses for this paraffin-like material that was discovered coating oil rigs. Robert Chesebrough is the chemist who devised and pat-

ented this process in 1872 noticed rig workers often rubbed it on their skin to protect it from chapping. Interestingly, the patent occurred two years before City of Kings Mountain was incorporated. So, this product has been around a long time. Petroleum jelly, or petrolatum, is made of a mixture of mineral oils and waxes and is semisolid. Most recognize it by its most common name, Vaseline. According to WebMD, this product has many good uses: • It seals water into your skin. That’s good for your wounds because they need a moist place to heal. It may take up to twice as long for dry injured skin to get better. This oily moisturizer may also ease the redness of a new scar and lower your chances of infection. It also won’t burn when you put it on.

• If your skin is dry, it could crack and let in bacteria. Petroleum jelly may help your skin and the medicines you take work better. It can ease inflammation and keep your skin moist. This can help you itch and scratch less. To get the most out of your petroleum jelly, use it on your skin when it’s damp. • It can relieve itchy skin in newborns and infants. If atopic dermatitis (eczema) runs in your family, petroleum jelly may be a low-cost way to help your child avoid it. You can start to use it on your baby’s skin about 3 weeks after they are born. • It may keep you from chafing in areas that skin rubs together. If you get a blister or chafing, petroleum jelly on your sore can help it heal. • If your baby gets a rash, use it between diaper changes. Derma-

tologists like it because there are no fragrances or preservatives. That’s good for babies' butts and parents' hands. And there’s no evidence that costly diaper rash creams work better than petroleum jelly. • If you have a hemorrhoid flare, you can use it to protect your sensitive skin. • It can protect your skin against wind and cold while outside in the winter. But you may want to avoid areas that are acne prone. Petroleum jelly can trap bacteria and oil in your skin. That can make your breakouts worse. • If the skin around your eyes is thin, it can get bothered easily. A layer of petroleum jelly can give your eyelids some added moisture. It’s also a safe way to remove eye makeup. But try not to get any inside your eye. • It can protect your

dog’s feet from the cold and from salt on the sidewalks. This oily layer can also moisturize your pet’s skin if they have atopic dermatitis. • If your nails are brittle, it can help fill in and smooth out some of the ridges and rough spots. If you get manicures a lot, you may want to dab some on after your next session. But make sure your nails are still a little damp first to seal in the water. A little petroleum jelly goes a long way. And if you don’t want it on your fingers at all, use a small spatula to put on a thin layer wherever you want to use it. If you moisturize your hands or feet, just put on gloves or socks after. But keep in mind that oil-based products may stain fabric or carpet.

Prepare now for severe weather Spring weather brings a variety of threats. Prepare now for the weather ahead, so you are not caught off-guard during spring storms that come with warming weather. All thunderstorms are dangerous because every thunderstorm produces lightning. Lightning can kill or seriously hurt people. Thunderstorms are also dangerous because they can lead to flash floods. Failing to evacuate flooded areas, entering flood waters, or remaining after a flood has passed can result in injury or death. Flooding is a temporary overflow of water onto land that is normally dry. Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. Floods may result from rain, snow, coastal storms, storm surges, and overflows of dams and other water systems. Tornadoes can destroy buildings, flip cars, and create deadly flying debris. Tornadoes are violently rotating columns of air that extend from a thunderstorm to the ground. Tornadoes can happen anytime and anywhere; bring intense wind over 200 MPH; and look like funnels. When a severe thunderstorm warning is issued, large hail may pelt you, your home, your pets, and your property. These warnings are issued when a severe thunderstorm is indicated by radar or reported by a reliable source. You should move to a safe place immediately. If time permits, consider moving vehicles into sheltered areas (garages, carports, etc.) and provide shelter

NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory tracks a thunderstorm in Nebraska. (NOAA) for pets. While high winds are commonly associated with severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, and nor’easters, they may also occur because of differences in air pressures, such as when a cold front passes across the area. March and April are the most likely months for this phenomenon. High winds can cause downed trees and power lines, flying debris and building collapses, which may lead to power outages, transportation disruptions, damage to buildings and vehicles, and injury or death. Plan for potential storms and get prepared ahead of time: • Discuss your emergency plan with your family • The time to plan for an emergency is before the emergency happens, this allows time for planning when you are not under pressure. If you wait until an emergency is at your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under duress and could make the wrong decisions. • Take time now to write

down your plan. • Document your valuables and possessions with a camera or video camera prior to an emergency. • Gather all vital documents, like passports and medical records, and put them somewhere that you can quickly access. • Make planning and preparedness a family affair to ensure everyone knows what to do. • Don’t forget to include pets in the planning process. • Every plan should include a kit with emergency supplies. • Know where you will go if you must evacuate and share that information with family members and have an out-of-state friend if possible as a family contact who knows your plan and where you will go during an emergency, this way all family members have a single point of contact. • Make a kit • Water – 1 gallon per person per day for 3 to 7 days. • Food- Non-perishable and canned food supply for 3 to 7

days. • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio with extra batteries. • Cell phone with charger. • First aid kit and first aid book. • Flashlight with extra batteries. • Manual can opener for food. • Anti-bacterial hand wipes or gel. • Wrench or pliers to turn off water. • Blanket or sleeping bag – 1 per person. • Prescription medications and glasses. • Seasonal change of clothing, including sturdy, closed toed shoes. • Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and other hygiene supplies. • Extra keys for cars and house. • Important documents such as insurance policies, copies of driver’s license, social security card, and bank records. • Fire Extinguisher • Cash and Change • Books, games, or cards. Ensure that family members with unique or special needs have adequate supplies in the emergency kit. This could include items for babies and those with functional asset needs. Don’t forget to include your pet when building an emergency kit. This kit should be kept with the family kit. To find more about the items needed in your pet kit.

By JIM MILLER Editor

When to Expect Your Social Security Checks Dear Savvy Senior, I am planning to retire and apply for my Social Security benefits in July. When can I expect my first check, and is direct deposit my only option for receiving my monthly payment? Almost 62

Dear Almost, Generally, Social Security retirement benefits, as well as disability and survivor benefits, are paid in the month after the month they are due. So, if you want to start receiving your Social Security benefits in July, your July benefits will be distributed in August. The day of the month you receive your benefit payment, however, will depend on your birthdate. Here’s the schedule of when you can expect to receive your monthly check. If you were born on the: • 1st through the 10th: Expect your check to be deposited on the second Wednesday of each month. • 11th through the 20th: Expect your check to be deposited on the third Wednesday of each month.

• 21st through the 31st: Expect your check to be deposited on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

There are, however, a few exceptions to this schedule. For example, if the day your Social Security check is supposed to be deposited happens to be a holiday, your check will be deposited the previous day. And, if you are receiving both Social Security benefits and SSI payments, your Social Security check will be deposited on the third day of the month. You should also know that for Social Security beneficiaries who started receiving benefits before 1997, their Social Security checks are paid on the third day of the month. To get a complete schedule of 2022 payment dates, visit SSA.gov/pubs/ EN-05-10031-2022.pdf. Receiving Options There are two ways you can receive your Social Security benefits. Most beneficiaries choose direct deposit into their bank or credit union account because it’s simple, safe and

secure. But if you don’t want this option, or you don’t have a bank account that your payments can be deposited into, you can get a Direct Express Debit MasterCard and have your benefits deposited into your card’s account.

This card can then be used to get cash from ATMs, banks or credit union tellers, pay bills online and over the phone, make purchases at stores or locations that accept Debit MasterCard and get cash back when you make those purchases, and purchase money orders at the U.S. Post Office. The money you spend or withdraw is automatically deducted from your account. And you can check your balance any time by phone, online or at ATMs. There’s also no cost to sign up for the card, no monthly fees and no overdraft charges. There are, however, some small fees for optional services you need to be aware of, like multiple ATM withdrawals. Currently, cardholders get one free ATM withdrawal per month, but additional monthly withdrawals cost 85 cents

each not including a surcharge if you use a non-network ATM. To learn more, visit USDirectExpress.com or call 800-333-1795. When and How to Apply The Social Security Administration recommends that you apply for benefits three months before you want to start receiving checks. This will give you enough time to make sure you have all the needed information to complete the application. See SSA. gov/hlp/isba/10/isba-checklist.pdf for a checklist of what you’ll need. You can apply for your Social Security benefits online at SSA.gov, by phone at 800-772-1213, or in person at your local Social Security office – call first to make an appointment. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
