RE: Social Security

There are several benefit calculators on the Social Security website, and as I recall one of them allows you to add your expected income for future years, along with the history shown on your annual statement. Note that each of your annual income numbers will be adjusted for inflation, and then the highest 35 of those inflation-adjusted numbers are averaged to determine your full-retirement-age benefit. Any zero-income years will count as zeros in that averaging calculation. If you go through that exercise (or if SSA will do it for you, I don't know), you can come up with a close estimate of your future benefit, with the exception of any COLAs that may happen between now and then.

RE: Health Insurance Advice

If you do any traveling make sure the plan you pick doesn't force you to use a network, or you could have issues traveling outside the network. My understanding is that one of the advantages to a Medigap (supplemental) plan over a Part C (Medicare Advantage) plan is that the Medigap is accepted wherever Medicare is (i.e. almost all doctors). But I could be wrong, so that's a question I will try to clear up with the insurance broker. Thanks for bringing it up!

RE: Health Insurance Advice

This thread has wandered a bit from the OP's question (he was looking for coverage for his pre-Medicare wife), but I have appreciated the Medicare supplement discussion because I'm immersed in the initial Medicare signup puzzle right now (I'll turn 65 in February). I've learned a lot about the Medicare supplement options here and elsewhere, but have come to the conclusion that I need expert help to make sure I'm doing the right thing. To that end, DW and I are meeting with an insurance broker next week. They have access to multiple companies and options, and are paid (commission) by the companies, not us. This one can write both for AARP/United Healthcare and for Blue Cross Blue Shield, which is our current pre-Medicare carrier, among others. It will be interesting to see what they recommend.

RE: Annoying issue with backup camera

On the screen there should be a camera button. that will keep it on camera, when using the turn signals but you will not have the radio. one or the other x2. These systems don't usually default to the rear camera; you have to set that. The only default is that they will override whatever you have set, to go to backup camera (when in reverse) and side camera (when you put a turn signal on). Then it reverts to whatever is set as the default. I keep mine set to "camera" so I can watch my toad, especially when cutting back in after I pass someone.
