Other services may be pro-: vided to assist Veterans in starting their own businesses or independent living services for those who are severely disabled and unable to work in traditional employment. Veterans are eligible for this program if they have received a discharge that is other than dishonorable and have a service connected disability rat- ing of at least 10% or a memorandum rating of 20% from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Under the Vocational Rehabilitation program veterans are entitled to 48 months of benefit and have 12 years from discharge or date of award for service connection whichever is later to be eligible. Once eligibility is established the veteran will be scheduled to meet with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor for a comprehensive evaluation to determine if he or she is entitled for services. The Assessment will in- clude the veteran's interest's aptitudesand abilities whether their service connected disabilities hinder them from gainful employment then a plan of action will be made. This plan of action is called a rehabilitation plan. This benefit can be used to go back to school which could lead to gain- ful employment. If you wish to apply or have any questions feel free to contact the Walsh County Veterans Service Office at 701-352-5030 or stop by for a visit at 638 Cooper Avenue Suite 5 Grafton ND 58237. Thank you for your service.

De ,pe at;y seeking motivation: Bad [ and laziness and I After going through a series of existential crises, I have noticed that almost everyone I meet has a serious case of at least one of the seven dead- ly sins. Now I realize that this is not a ground breaking discovery at all, but I have never noticed it before. Politicians suffering from greed, movie stars with pride, lust, and/or envy, mass murderers with wrath, and my- self with sloth. I have kind of noticed that I am pretty lazy for a while, but I guess I've never really cared too much before. Ironic right? Anyway I have recent- ly been thinking about trying to do something about it. I have been try- ing to distance myself from websites and habits that keep me from ac- complishing things, l .... ,: I am.not e:,':!ced'!St,t0tl I kpowthI will always with,.;vct;cOn :rm, j hop:sybe soxp- day I will be able to properly deal with it. For now, I'm just asking tlt everyone just bear with me while I try to figure this ouL m I I i By Jim Miller Dear Savvy Senior, I just turned 65 and received my Medicare card. I see that the ID number on my card is the same as my Social Security number, and on the back of the card it tells me I need to carry it with me at all times. What can I do to protect myselffrom iden- tify theft if my purse and Medicare card get stolen ? Conflicted Beneficiary Dear Conflicted, Many people new to Medicare are surprised to learn that the ID number on their Medicare card is identical to their Social Security number (SSN). After all, we're constantly warned not to carry our SSN around with us, because if it gets lost or stolen, the result could be identity theft. But the Medicare ID is more than an identifier. It's proof ofinstmance. Beneficiaries need to show their Medicare card at the doctor's office and the hospital in order to have Medicare pay for treatment. Over the years, many consumer advocates, have called for a new form of Medicare identification. The Centers for Medicare & Med- icaid Services, which administers Medicare, also acknowledges the problem, but so far nothing has been done. One of the main reasons is be- cause it would cost an estimated $255 to $317 million to fix it. And that's just the direct cost to the fed- eral government. It doesn't include er healthcare providers to adjust their systems, or the cost to the states. Other govemment health systems like the Department of Veterans Af- fairs and Department of Defense have already begun using ID num- bers that are different from SSNs, but no one knows when Medicare will follow suit. In the meantime, here are some tips offered by various consumer ad- vocate groups that can help keep your Medicare card safe and out of the hands of fraudsters. Protect Your Card For starters, AARP suggests that you simply don't carry your Medicare card at all, because it's not necessary. Most healthcare providers already have their patients in their electronic systems and know how to bill you. But if you really don't feel com- fortable not having it with you, then the Privacy Rights Clearing House, a national consumer resource on identity theft recommends that you make a photocopy of your card and cut it down to wallet size. Then use scissors to cut out the last four dig- its of your SSN, or take a black marker and cross them out, and car- ry that instead. You will, however, need your ac- tual Medicare card with you the first time you visit a new health care provider, who will likely want to make a photocopy of it for their files.
