So now, 15 hundred and 12 dollars a year less?

Which has cut into Vacation money. No Vacation this year.
- I'm really concerned now that my husband told me all this!
Cause now, he said he didn't ...it's not over.

Sorry to put this personal stuff here. I will not do this again.
But I thought you all should have an explaination.

Don't be sorry you posted. In the future you should feel to post and do so with inquiry in mind. Take this scenario and post it with the question does this make sense. Just say you heard someone say and you are wondering if it makes sense. Be glad you posted and now have the real deal. I have seen comments similar to your OP with the $38 increase in SS being the same in other places. So it could be making the rounds.

Don't feel that way at all. You came here to look for answers.
While we didn't have answers we did point out information to you that made you question your own post.
You went hunting for answers and got them.

Many of us posted links for you to read to understand even further or to back up our statements.

You walked away a smarter woman..right ?

Geez, everthing else is the same.

Had I not posted this here? And you guys had not questioned It?

I doubt I would know the real deal today!

I've the same problem with him and the check book...

And I've now learned about a $1,100. credit-card bill too!
When I paid all our debt off a few years ago so we could live off his pensions til we got SS too.

Sorry to put you all through this...I've learned my lesson with him again!
Double-check what he says with what he's doing.

I need to stop being lazy, and stop trusting him to make all the money decisions!

Thanks for bearing with me...
If your husband is racking up debt without telling you, then lying when you investigate it, maybe that is more of a problem then just finances. Trust is the core of marriages and without it love cannot flourish.

You should really sit down and have a serious talk with him about this, because if it continues you will have a serious problem. It will either be a financial, and then relationship, problem...or just a relationship problem that you can recover from.

- I had another talk with him yesterday afternoon.

He denies he said anything about
The Health Insurance being increased to $88.00 a month/with no deductable!

I questioned him about the credit card debt.
And told him to take money from my savings to pay it off so as not to pay interest on it.
He assured me that he still had saving and would do that.

Not the first time I've had opportunity to put out fires.
He's really good to me. He just becomes misguided at times.
Not perfect like me

How about you agree to make money decisions together ? - I think that would help.

My SS went up $18, COLA, and my cable company immediately took it all and then some, with a $25 increase the same month. The cost of living increase doesn't even cover one item.
