Though we were ‘lucky’, in that Social Services here in Lake County has helped us with food, medical, dental, vision and more, probably most of the reason we got this help is that, due to the Valley Fire, 2015, my husband’s and my jobs at xxx  burned to the ground.

We had planned to ‘retire’ there, working for the next decade or more, but found ourselves jobless, income-less, with a lease and no ‘retirement plan’.  Our outgo exceeded our SSI income so we went through every government agency, disaster relief, Red Cross assistance plan, food and clothing donation center, and finally after a couple of months, when things had died down, found Social Services, who immediately got things sorted out, Medi-gap included.  All I can say to those seniors whose income falls short, is

1) move to Nevada, where all Medi-gap insurance is FREE,

2) check with local county Social Services and

3) plan to work ’til you die.
