I got a letter today saying Social Security is terminating my benefits effective January.

 

But they've got the wage data all screwed up for the last few months (they say I've made $500 more than I did each month). And I should qualify for the grace period which means any month I don't make over $1,180 (aka almost every month) I'll still receive benefits for the next 3 years.

 

I'm not too worried (I want to enter the grace period thing), but it's still a bit worrying.

Are your benefits through Federal or State? Hopefully there's an officer somewhere you could discuss how they came up with their incorrect numbers (my guess is pre tax errors) and place you in the correct spectrum of the program. Government is far from perfect

Federal. I have no idea how they got the numbers they did (incorrect data from background check company?), because I've been reporting my gross wages like I should be.

You expect someone in government to do anything productive between now and January 1?

Depends on level of service. :( I'm still going in.

Unrelated question, but if you have unused paid vacation time at a job, do you typically get compensated for it if you lose or quit the job? Seems to say in a handbook that you get it but I am curious if this is actually the case.

Should be company policy, and some may prorate it for time worked, but you should be entitled to compensation for any vacation time/pay you lost/were unable to use.

If you don't need a reference, should just use your vacation time then quit.

 

Because they wouldn't give you two weeks notice when they fire you.

Yeah that was an expensive lesson to learn lol.

 

At least I know for next time AND I could get my job back anytime I wanted.

 

But for right now I drank a bottle of tequila and it's 430am and I'm tired as [bleep]k

In here, employers are legally required to reimburse any untaken vacation days. We also have mandatory 28 days paid vacation per year...

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Wow 28 days! That means you can disappear for like 2 months, incredible.

 

I don't know if taking vacation time and quitting is the greatest idea though. They're going to call the place and ask how employee X was when you are applying for the next job, aren't they?

yeah, i wouldn't burn bridges. In canada, employers are legally obligated to pay out statutory vacation (2 weeks), but not company vacation (anything extra)

I'd say treating employers like they treat you is about as capitalist as you can get :D

In my experience, most employers just pay 4% on every cheque.

something looks different

 

Also I had Thanksgiving with a friend, was pretty cool. One of his family members was IT so it was fun talking to him about all kinds of technology crap lol.

 

I dropped dinner off at my brother's work (Wally Word) and seethed with hatred for consumerism. There was no parking. On a Thanksgiving.

 

My software co-op is gonna be called End Korp. #edgycommunist (ok I'll stop that.)

You won't be able to sell to shops, there's going to be greedy chest mimics that buy your crap.
