AT&T Making Changes To Retiree Medical Insurance 2015
Go To http://www.InsuredMeds.com for FREE Quotes & Info AT&T Making Changes To Retiree Medical Insurance 2015 AT&T retired employees, as of January 1, 2015, will no longer have employee benefits offered through AT&T affecting 310,000 retirees. Instead, they will be given a $2,700 (HRA) Healthcare Reimbursement Account from which they can purchase coverage on their own. To say that the retirees are sadden about losing their great health coverage would be a vast understatement. Tens of thousands of retirees are now forced to work with Call Center operators, who are $18 per-hour AON agents who are pushing the seniors into plans that AON feels would be in their best interest. While AON calls itself an independent brokerage, it appears that they've only chosen one or two plans in each local area for the seniors to choose from. Insured Meds.com is an independent Medicare insurance specialist. We work for you not the insurance companies to get you the best prices and insurance protection.

Is Corporate Welfare Real, Justified? Robert Reich on 401(k) and Pension Funds (1995)
In The Work of Nations, he argues that a nation's competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them—rather than on the profitability of companies headquartered within it. Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation's people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation's future standard of living uniquely dependes. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy. Bill Clinton incorporated Reich's thinking into his 1992 campaign platform, "Putting People First," and after being elected, invited Reich to head his economic transition team. Reich later joined the administration as Secretary of Labor. During his tenure, he implemented the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), successfully promoted increasing the minimum wage, successfully lobbied to pass the School-to-Work Jobs Act, and launched a number of job training programs. In addition, Reich used the office as a platform for focusing national attention on the need for American workers to adapt to the new economy. He advocated that the country provide more opportunities for workers to learn more technology. Reich is diagnosed with multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, also known as Fairbanks disease, and stands 4 feet 10.5 inches (1.486 m). After the Clinton administration[edit] In 1996, between Clinton's re-election and second inauguration, Reich decided to leave the department to spend more time with his sons, then in their teen years. He published his experiences working for the Clinton administration in Locked in the Cabinet. After publication of the book, Reich received criticism for embellishing events with invented dialogue. The paperback release of the memoir revised or omitted the inventions.[16] Reich became a professor at Brandeis University, teaching courses for undergraduates as well as in the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. In 2003, he was elected the Professor of the Year by the undergraduate student body. In 2002, he ran for Governor of Massachusetts. He also published an associated campaign book, I'll Be Short. Reich was the first Democratic candidate for a major political office to support same-sex marriage. He also pledged support for abortion rights and strongly condemned capital punishment. His campaign staff was largely made up of his Brandeis students. Although his campaign had little funding, he surprised many and came in a close second out of six candidates in the Democratic primary with 25% of the vote. In 2003, he was awarded the prestigious Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97 Prize, by the former Czech President, for his writings in economics and politics.[17] In 2004, he published Reason: Why Liberals Will Win the Battle for America, a book on how liberals can forcefully argue for their position in a country increasingly dominated by what he calls "radcons", or radical conservatives. In addition to his professorial role, he is a weekly contributor to the American Public Media public radio program Marketplace, and a regular columnist for the American Prospect, which he co-founded in 1990.[18] He is also a frequent contributor to CNBC's Kudlow & Company and On the Money. In early 2005, there was speculation that Reich would once again seek the Democratic nomination for Governor of Massachusetts. He instead endorsed the then-little-known candidacy of Deval Patrick, who had previously served as Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights in the Clinton Administration. Patrick won the party's endorsement, a three-way primary with nearly 50% of the vote, and the general election in November 2006. In September 2005 Reich testified against John Roberts at his confirmation hearings for Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. On January 1, 2006 Reich joined the faculty of UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Policy. Since then, he has taught a popular course called Wealth and Poverty, which he developed during his tenure at Brandeis.[19] In addition to his professorship, Reich is also a Member of the Board of Trustees for the Blum Center for Developing Economies at the University of California, Berkeley.[20] The Center is focused on finding solutions to address the crisis of extreme poverty and disease in the developing world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Reich Image By Kristin Dos Santos from Los Angeles, California, United States (Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders Uploaded by sevela.p) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Vs. Aetna: Who is Better?
Next Step: http://hubs.ly/H01ndv70 Anthem and Aetna Policy and Plan Comparisons Now that we're done with the boring history lesson, let's start comparing these two health insurance heavy weights. It's possible Anthem is going for quantity over quality. They have 14 total plans (Inside and Out of the Marketplace) available for you to choose from in 2015. Bronze - 5 Silver - 7 Gold - 1 Platinum - 0 Catastrophic - 1 Aetna has the fewest number of plans of any health insurance company in Ohio with a grand total of five. Bronze - 2 Silver - 2 Gold - 1 Platinum - 0 Simple math will tell you Anthem is going to give you more choice. But having the most plans doesn’t make you the best. Just like having the least doesn’t make you the worst. It’s a matter if there’s one that works for you. Anthem and Aetna Doctor/Hospital Network Differences This is where both companies fall pretty far behind. There are other companies that haven’t let Obamacare get the best of them, like Anthem and Aetna. Those companies still offer a mostly unchanged network. Both Anthem and Aetna decided to significantly limit your choice of doctors and hospitals. Usually only leaving one major hospital network to choose from in your area. If they happened to pick your prefered hospital system, that might work. If not, than you might have some problems. You don't want to have to try and squint really hard to see a scenario where one of their plans make sense. The biggest risk you run with limited choice is not being able to see a top special if needed. As you'll see in the next section, if this could save you money, I might allow it. But, nine time out of 10 it's just not in the cards. Anthem and Aetna Pricing and Cost This is where things turn into a battle for last place. Both Anthem and Aetna have had little interest in offering competitive rates. There are companies like Medical Mutual and even InHealth Mutual that are cheaper. Also, don’t forget the network limitations both companies have. This has been the case for the last two years, with a few exceptions popping up here and there. Sometimes I would run a quote for a client and Anthem and Aetna would be in the ballpark, but rarely cheaper. If no major adjustments are made by either company in 2016 you can expect this trend to continue. The rate for 2016 should start to show up at the start of open enrollment on November 15.

US Postal Service Wants Congress to Make Changes to Its Business Model
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The United States Postal Service has reported a loss of over $5 billion from April to June. The Postal Service says it expects to report a loss of $15 billion for the 12-month period ending in September. And it has warned of even bigger losses if Congress does not let mail service change the way it does business. The United States Postal Service, or USPS, has a history as long as the nation's own. Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first Postmaster General, or head of the Postal Service, in 1775. But the Postal Service says its income has not kept up with growing costs. For example, profitable first class mail is decreasing. The service says most of its recent losses resulted from making payments to its health care program for retirees. About a billion dollars of the loss was for payments to injured workers. The news from April to June was not all bad. Improvements in the economy fueled income growth of nine percent from shipping and delivery. The Postal Service says it is less costly to send letters and packages in the mail than to use private companies. The USPS says it has cut operating costs by a total of $14 billion in the past five years. To improve its financial health, the agency has proposed cutting service on Saturdays. It wants Congress to cancel a requirement that the Postal Service make payments to its health care program for retired workers. USPS also wants the Treasury Department to return $11 billion in payments made to its pension plan for retirees. On August first, USPS failed to make a required payment of $5.5 billion for health care benefits for future retirees. It was the first time the Postal Service has ever failed to make such a payment. And, the service is warning that it may have to delay making payments to companies to which it owes money. The Postal Service says that without major changes, it will continue to lose billions of dollars a year. The Washington Post newspaper reported that Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe told reporters "Congress needs to act responsibly." In his words, "this is no way to run any kind of business." The Postal Service receives income for its operations from the sale of stamps, products and shipping services. It does not receive direct government assistance, but is controlled by the federal government. For VOA Learning English, I'm Laurel Bowman. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 31Aug2012)

Post-Employment Benefits Task Force Forum - Morning Session
The Post-Employment Benefits Task Force visited UC Berkeley to talk about its work and the range of options it is considering for pension and retiree health benefits. The Task Force also shared the results of the recent employee preference survey. Two sessions were offered: A morning session for staff and staff retirees, and an afternoon session for faculty and professors emeriti. The April meeting follows-up on meetings held last fall at which time task force members laid out the issues confronting UC in sustaining the current pension and retiree health benefits. UC President Mark Yudof appointed the Task Force in March 2009, and charged it with reviewing current retirement benefits and developing options for balancing the long-term costs of pension and retiree health benefits with the need to provide sustainable post-employment benefits to faculty and staff. The Task Force has been studying the issues and weighing input from the UC community. It will make recommendations to President Yudof later this summer on ways to change the funding and policies for post-employment benefits. For more information on the Post-Employment Benefits Task Force, including a recording of the fall forums presentation, visit theFuture of UC Retirement Benefits website at http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/ucrpfuture/emp_task.html

Commodity Prices Reach a Two-Year High
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Commodities are basic materials that are used and traded worldwide. The price of commodities helps determine how much a business can charge for a product and the profit it can make. Commodity prices have reached a two-year high since falling sharply during the world financial crisis. Hard commodities are materials like iron ore, oil and gold. Agricultural products are soft commodities. These include wheat, cotton and rice.Economic measures show the world economy is recovering unevenly. China and India, for example, have reported strong growth in manufacturing. Developed nations have had slower growth. John James is a business professor at Pace University in New York State. He says demand in developing economies can push up prices for commodities like oil and iron ore used for making steel. But, he says, changing currency values can also influence prices.He says the increase in the price of commodities is a reflection of the instability of both the euro and the dollar. The best example of that is gold.Gold prices have reached record levels in recent months. That means gold dealers must pay more for the commodity now than they did only a year ago. That affects current prices. Not surprisingly, manufacturers want some control over the prices they pay for commodities. Futures contracts are agreements between a buyer and a seller to exchange something at a set price at some time in the future. These contracts let buyers lock in a price for basic materials.But some traders in futures markets only want to make a profit. They buy or sell contracts depending on the direction they believe prices will go. These speculators get blamed when prices rise, or fall, too quickly. The United States, Germany and France are looking into ways to limit this kind of trading. Some experts say exporting commodities is not a good path to long-term economic growth. The United Nations recently reported that the least developed countries must change their economies to provide good incomes for their citizens.Supachai Panitchpakdi leads the UN development group UNCTAD. He says the least developed countries need to cut dependence on commodities and manufacture products for export. He says only this will let them gain from world trade.

Microsoft Says Google Blocks Competition in Europe Search Market
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Microsoft has fought legal battles with officials in Europe and the United States over competition in the personal computer market. But at the end of March, Microsoft accused Google of being anti-competitive. A complaint to the European Commission accused Google of unfairly controlling the Internet search market in Europe. Google was already talking to the commission about the issue and said it was happy to explain to anyone how its business works.But Google also faced other issues. Gmail users in China began reporting problems with Google's e-mail service in late February. The problems came as news of the revolutions in the Arab world filled the Internet and there were online calls for protests in China.Google said the government was interfering with its e-mail service. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu called those accusations unacceptable. But Google spokeswoman Jessica Powell said, "This is a government blockage, carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail." Google is the world leader in Internet search. But in China, the biggest search engine is Baidu. And in late March, China's largest Internet media company, Sina, dropped Google's search engine from its website. Sina said it would use its own technology. An estimated four hundred fifty million Chinese are online -- about half of all Internet users in Asia.In two thousand ten, Google said a cyberattack from China had attempted to get information from the Gmail accounts of human rights activists. Google also expressed concerns about censorship. So Google relocated its Chinese search engine from the mainland to Hong Kong. In March, Google also faced new problems at home. A federal judge in New York ruled against its plan to put millions of books online. Google wants to create a digital library of all the world's books. It reached a one hundred twenty-five million dollar deal in two thousand eight with groups representing writers and publishers. Google agreed to create a system to pay copyright holders when their works are used online. But Judge Denny Chin rejected the proposed settlement. He said it would give Google monopoly control of the book search market. But he left open the possibility for a new plan.On a similar issue, Baidu in China said it removed almost three million documents from its library. Writers have complained that Baidu did not have permission for their works to appear on its document-sharing site. For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Finding Capital in 'Dark Pools' and Angel Investors
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Big stock exchanges in the United States are linked in what is known as the national market system plan. The idea is to process deals and report the best available prices to the public as quickly as possible. But there are other ways of investing that operate outside the national market system. In the late nineteen nineties, the Securities and Exchange Commission wanted to make room for new ideas in financial trading. The commission developed new rules for exchanges and for what are known as alternative trading systems. Alternative trading systems are operated by brokers or dealers. They mainly serve big investors like retirement funds, universities and financial companies. These systems trade the same public stocks as other market players do. But they do not publicly report their trades. This secrecy explains why they also have another name: "dark pools." As of October, there were eighty-six alternative trading systems registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.A buy or sell order for a large amount of stock can move markets. It can influence other investors to try to buy or sell shares of that same stock. Supporters of alternative trading systems say the secrecy reduces the risk of a disorderly market. But the International Monetary Fund has concerns about alternative trading systems. It says they limit the ability of the investing public to price a security effectively. Also, the IMF says the activity of these trading systems is largely outside the reach of market regulators. Another alternative to the investing methods that most people know is the work of so-called angel investors. These are individuals who invest in new projects -- and not just Internet startups that hope to become the next Google or Facebook. They could also be small, local businesses. Steve Moore made a lot of money in the software business. After he retired he made an interest-free loan to Crystie and Keith Kisler. The couple operate a small organic farm in Washington state. They could not get a bank loan to build their business.In return, Mr. Moore received a minority share of their business. The Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire says angel investing fell more than six percent nationwide in the first half of last year. Still, angel investments during that period totaled eight and a half billion dollars.For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 14Jan2011)

Obama Urges Steps to Strengthen Economy
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In September, President Obama proposed new measures to lift the economy. The central bank in its latest report said there was continued growth in the past several weeks, but with "widespread signs" of slowing. Congressional elections are November second. One new survey showed that forty-nine percent of likely voters think Republicans should control Congress. Other polls find that about sixty percent of Americans think the country is going in the wrong direction. President Obama gave a speech near Cleveland, Ohio. He proposed a tax plan for businesses that make capital improvements, like buying new equipment. The president said: "And I'm proposing that all American businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011." He said this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment, and will encourage large corporations to start putting their profits to work.Mr. Obama also proposed to permanently extend a tax credit for research and development.And he offered a plan for "rebuilding and modernizing" America's roads, rails and runways. He said it would create jobs and improve transportation. The plan would cost fifty billion dollars, but he promised it would not add to the budget deficit over time. The president spoke in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Both speeches were in the Midwest, an area hit hard by the recession. He said almost every Republican in Congress is saying no to his ideas. But retiring Senator George Voinovich of Ohio told the Washington Post that he planned to help push a bill through the Senate. That bill, supported by the president, contains measures to help small businesses. Still, there is disagreement over the future of the tax cuts approved under President George W. Bush. These are set to end this December. President Obama wants to extend the tax cuts only for families that earn less than two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Republicans oppose ending the tax cuts for higher earners. They say it would hurt small businesses. Democrats argue that few small businesses earn enough for their taxes to go up. Congress passed a big stimulus bill shortly after the president took office last year. But there is little that his newest proposals could do to help the economy before November.

Obama Looks to Exports, Hoping to Create Jobs
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The International Monetary Fund has raised its prediction for world economic growth to four and six-tenths percent this year. That is a half-percentage point higher than the estimate in April. The IMF credited expansion in Asia and growing demand in the United States. But the lender's chief economist also warned that "downside risks have risen sharply." President Obama talked about the importance of building exports as a way to create jobs and economic growth at home. He said: "American exports grew almost seventeen percent over the first four months of this year, compared to the same period last year. Part of this, of course, is due to the global recovery. But we are also moving forward on improving conditions for America's exporters." Mr. Obama re-launched the President's Export Council. The group includes business and labor leaders who will advise on trade issues. The government reported that private employers added only eighty-three thousand jobs in June. Unemployment remains high even after six months of job growth. As the president pointed out, there are still five unemployed workers for each job opening. Export-related jobs, he said, pay fifteen percent more than average. In two thousand eight, American exports supported almost seven percent of all jobs, including one-third of jobs in manufacturing. In January, in his State of the Union speech, President Obama promised to double exports in five years. In his comments in July, he said the United States must work to remove trade barriers and open new markets. Mr. Obama said the United States offers some of the world's lowest barriers to trade -- and expects free and fair access to other countries in return.In late June, the World Trade Organization ruled that Airbus received billions in illegal European aid. The ruling was a victory for its American competitor Boeing. American lawmakers have also long complained that China suppresses the value of the yuan to lower the price of its exports. China recently promised to let the yuan trade more freely against the dollar. China passed Germany to become the world's top exporting country last year. The United States was third. Some American companies have been doing well in developing markets. For the first time, General Motors announced higher sales in China, the world's largest car market, than in the United States.And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Alan Moore Explains How Advisors Can Transition from Brick and Mortar to 100% Virtual Office
http://bradleyjohnson.com/alan-moore-podcast. On this edition of The Elite Advisor Blueprint Podcast, I am joined by our special guest, Alan Moore (@xyplanning), co-founder of the XY Planning Network and the host of #XYPNRadio. XY Planning Network is a platform for financial advisors that want to start and run their fee-only financial planning firm to serve X and Y generation clients largely ignored by traditional firms. XY Planning Network currently has over 250 advisory firms in their network. Alan started his first practice in Wisconsin, but quickly realized that traditional financial planning business was not for him. Following his heart and his passion for the outdoors, he leaped over to Bozeman, MT, so he could hit the slopes over lunchtime, and was able to maintain the same client base and work with them virtually. Based on that experience, Alan proceeded to build a highly-successful virtual advisory practice and ultimately co-founded XY Planning Network with Michael Kitces. I invited Alan to the show to share his inspiring story and break down the exact steps that advisors can take to transition their traditional financial planning firm to a virtual one that supports the life they want to live. We also take a deep dive into the must-have tools for virtual advisors and discuss why it’s incredibly important to define your ideal life as a financial advisor.
