The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008 has a lit- tle something for seniors: a one- time payment of $250 for all 55 million of us. Here are a few things you need to know: Who will receive the payment? Nearly everybody who collected Social Security, SSI, Veterans or Railroad retirement benefits dur- ing November or December 2008 or January 2009. If you didn't start getting benefits until February, you don't qualify for the payment. When will I get my payment? Sometime during the last week of May or first week of June, or sooner. Will the amount be added to my regular payment? No, it will be a separate payment. If you have automatic deposit or Direct Express, you'll receive the money in the same way. Will I and my spouse both get a payment? Yes, if you're both get- ting benefits already, you'll both receive a payment. Do I have to do anything to get the money? No, it's automatic. Therefore, if someone contacts you and says they can "help" you get your payment if you'll give them your personal information, or if you see an ad offering help, it's a scam. If you suspect a scare, contact the Social Security fraud hotline at (800) 269-0271. If I receive multiple benefits, for example Social Security as well as Railroad benefits, will I get mul- tiple payments? No, it's one pay- ment per person. What if I don't get my payment? If you haven't received your pay- ment by the end of May, call Social Security at (800) 772-1213 AFTER June 4 and let them know. Or you can call your local Social Security office. If you only receive VA ben- efits and don't get your payment, contact the VA after that date.

The new Branch Manager of the Annandale Area Public Library will be a familiar face to library patrons who have visited the Kimball Pub- lic Library. Carla Asfeld, who has managed the Kimball Public Library since 1996, will manage both Kimball and Annandale libraries effective April 30. Her first day working at the Annandale location will be May 5. The Annandale and Kimball librar- ies are both part of the 32-branch Great River Regional Library (GRRL) system. Asfeld will take over from long- term Annandale manager Sandy Otto, who is retiring from library work after nearly 33 years. Asfeld is a native of the area. She is orig- inally from Watkins and taught in St. Anthony's Elementary School in Watkins before becoming the Kim- ball branch manager. Since then, she has established a high level of rapport with the local community and Library Friends group, accord- ing to her supervisor, Mic Golden, GRRL Collection Development Coordinator. "Carla's been suc- cessful in Kimball and I'm sure she will be successful in Annandale," Golden said. Need access to the Internet ?
