There have been some developments coming about over the last several weeks, so some updates are in order. My parents are seriously thinking about moving out of state to be closer to their grandkids. And I have decided that, barring any static from Social Security, I’m going to be moving with them should they decide to go through with this.
Naturally I don’t have much of an idea of where to start with the whole deal. I imagine I’m going to need to contact my local Social Security office and let them know I might be moving out of state. I don’t know how long this kind of change over is going to take. And there is the prospect of my having to find a place near my parents. So far as far as we can tell, all of the low income places have waiting lists. It is possible I might be couch surfing with my parents or my brother for several months until something comes open.
I have no idea how I’m going to transfer my medicaid out of state. I might even be able to qualify for more programs because I’ll be in an urban area. My home state of Nebraska doesn’t usually give much of extra benefits and we do have one of the lowest costs of living in the country.
In short, it is quite possible that there are going to be some major changes in the coming weeks and months. I’ll keep everyone posted.
Urban area? Any chance of a college or community college being nearby.? Maybe you’ll meet more intellectually stimulating people? This is exciting news! Have you ever considered Vocational Rehab? They help some people find jobs and I don’t know if you’d have any interest or if they could help you, but it just crossed my mind. Anyway, it sounds like some changes might be coming and I hope they’re wonderful!
The urban area I might be relocating to is the Oklahoma City area, so there is University of Oklahoma and several other smaller schools in the area. I did try Voc Rehab in the past but they found mostly remedial jobs I could have found on my own. I’m not that interested in going back to a regular job as I consider the blog something like a job/volunteer work. I try to treat my blog like a job and I have found I can live comfortably off my social security as long as I stay out of debt. So I’m not too concerned about having to find a regular job.
