    Movie: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Join us on April 3rd at 12:45 for the just out of the theater movie: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. This movie has been highly rated from critics and the general audience alike. THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

    Content by Judy- March- New Medicare Cards

    Be on the lookout for your new Medicare Cards and tell everyone else to look for theirs. Your neighbors, your family, friends and strangers even! The new cards will have a randomly generated number. No longer will it use your Social Security number! Great thing and it will help protect all of us from identity fraud.

    “We’re taking this step to protect our seniors from fraudulent use of Social Security numbers which can lead to identity theft and illegal use of Medicare benefits,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “We want to be sure that Medicare beneficiaries and healthcare providers know about these changes well in advance and have the information they need to make a seamless transition.”

    Be very cautious and on the alert for scammers. If anyone calls you about your replacement card they are not from Medicare or Social Security! Officials will NEVER ask you for personal or private information or ask for money as part of the new card process.

    It looks like Connecticut and the rest of New England will be getting theirs after June of 2018. To be sure you get your card make sure Social Security has your correct address. You can check your address by visiting ssa.gov/myaccount or by calling 800-772-1213.

    Just make sure you don’t throw it out with the junk mail!!
