POL Reminder

With May coming to an end, it is probably a good time to remind all American Citizens, who receive US Government benefits, that the May and June mailings for Proof of Life are going out.

If you receive one of the US government pensions, and are a permanent resident of Panama, then you need to be watching for your letter, if the last two digits of your social security number end in 50-99.

Remember that a Panama mailing address cannot be one of the mail forwarding companies, such as MBE, Mailbox Express, etc. It has to be delivered to a Panama Post Office.

If you don’t receive your letter by October, then you will need to contact the FBU (Federal Benefits Unit) in the US Panama Embassy.

When I was a kid I thought 70 was really really old and now I’ve discovered I was right.

Nobody warned me that being in my 70’s would involve this much ibuprofen.

Stop at two is the best advice for having kids and having drinks.
