BELOIT TO HOST MEDICARE PART D ENROLLMENT EVENT

The Beloit Senior Center will be the site of a Medicare Part D enrollment event on Tuesday, November 1, beginning at 9:00 AM and slated to run until 4:00 PM.  The event is sponsored by the North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging as well as the Mitchell County Council on Aging and the Beloit Senior Center.  The program will highlight the Medicare Part D Drug plans which will be available in the annual enrollment sign up period scheduled for October 15 through December 7.  The program is open to anyone either currently enrolled in Medicare, or those who will be going on Medicare in the next four months.  There is no cost for the event, and advanced enrollment is not necessary, although the scheduling of an appointment is advised.  Appointments can be made by calling the NC-FHAAA at 800-432-2703, or by calling the Beloit Senior Center at 785-738-5802.

The enrollment event will be conducted by staff members from NC-FHAAA who specialize in Medicare issues for the Manhattan based Area Agency.  Also in attendance will be some of the local SHICK (Senior Health Insurance Counselors for Kansans) representatives, including Mr. John Highland.  Each individual who participates in the enrollment will work with a SHICK counselor, and will be given as much time as needed in order to arrive at the Medicare Part D Drug Plan that works best for them.  All SHICK volunteers undergo three intense days of training for that position as they strive to help Kansas Seniors arrive at Medicare decisions that are best for that individual.  The local pharmacies also have a vested interest in helping their customers achieve a beneficial relationship with the Medicare program, both in terms of controlling costs as well as providing necessary coverage for their individual drug needs.  They provide yet another option for the citizens of this area in wisely selecting the plan that works in their best interest.

An added feature this year will be the attendance of a health insurance Navigator, whose role is to help people who are under the age of 65 attain an affordable health care plan.  Many will even qualify for help with the health plan premium, and the Navigator is trained to find those assistance options.  Any individual who does not currently have health insurance through their employer is invited to work with the Navigator to find a plan that works for them.  Again, this service is free, and you are not required to pick any particular plan.  Let the Navigator help you achieve health insurance security.

Participation is open to anyone in Mitchell County or any of the surrounding counties.  Everyone who participates in the Medicare program is highly advised to re-evaluate their Part D plan each year.  Plans change from one year to the next, so what worked well for you this year might not be the best plan for you this coming year.  In addition, a person’s individual drug needs also change from year to year, so again it is best to look at all the options available to you.  Every SHICK volunteer can site many examples of individuals who saved hundreds of dollars a year, just by choosing the most beneficial plan for their needs.  Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to save money on your Medicare Part D plan, by participating in the yearly enrollment event on Tuesday, November 1st, at the Beloit Senior Center.   Call Jay Rowh at 785-738-0241 for further details.

KansasWorks Work Opportunity Tax Credit

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit available to employers who hire and retain veterans and individuals from other target groups with significant barriers to employment. Employers claim about $1 billion in tax credits each year under the WOTC program. There is no limit on the number of individuals an employer can hire to qualify to claim the tax credit. WOTC joins other workforce programs that incentivize workplace diversity and facilitate access to good jobs for American workers

WOTC helps targeted workers move from economic dependency into self-sufficiency as they earn a steady income and become contributing taxpayers, while participating employers are able to reduce their income tax liability.

The maximum tax credit amounts depend on the wages paid to the new hire, the new employee’s target group and the number of hours worked during the first year of employment. The tax credit amounts range from $1,200 to $9,600.

On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (the PATH Act) that extends and modifies the WOTC Program. In summary, the PATH Act:

  • Retroactively reauthorizes the WOTC program target groups for a five-year period, from December 31, 2014 to December 31, 2019.
  • Introduces a new target group, Qualified Long-term Unemployment Recipients, for new hires that begin to work for an employer on or after January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2019.

There are approximately 5,873 Employers’ in Kansas that utilize the WOTC program. The WOTC unit averages 38,000 applications a year.

For more information about the WOTC please contact Ashla Stowe at ashla.stowe@ks.gov or (785) 296-7435 or go to WOTC.

Farmway Coop 

Farmway Co-op, Inc. is joining with 30,000 other cooperatives nationwide in October to celebrate National Cooperative Month, which recognizes the many ways cooperatives help to build stronger communities and a stronger economy.

“Cooperatives Build” is the theme of this year’s National Cooperative Month. “This year’s theme is excellent, because there are so many ways that cooperatives help to build a stronger rural America,” said Art Duerksen, Farmway CEO. “Our cooperative had $409,874,612  in sales and other income last year, with earnings on those sales being returned either to our members or reinvested in the co-op. Those dollars circulate close to home, helping to strengthen the local economy.”

Consider these ways that co-ops build:

Cooperatives Build Trust Most co-ops strive to adhere to seven key cooperative principles, which combine to help build trust between the co-op, its members and the community.  For example, the first principle is Voluntary and Open Membership, which means that we are a voluntary organization open to all people to use our services and willing to accept the responsibility of membership. The second principle, Democratic Member Control, gives members a voice in the cooperative’s policies and decisions. Through the fifth principle, Education, Training and Information, we enable members to contribute to the development of our cooperative whether it’s by attending an annual meeting or serving on the board of directors. Members have opportunities to contribute to the cooperative.

Cooperatives Build Community The seventh cooperative principle is Concern for Community. Cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through employee involvement in local organizations, through charitable contributions to community efforts and through support for schools. Through the month of October, your cooperative is hosting its annual Farmway Food Pantry Drive at all Farmway locations and participating high schools. Elementary students can join in the celebration through the coloring contest.

Cooperatives Build Jobs Cooperatives generate jobs in their communities, keep profits local and pay local taxes to help support community services. Farmway has 37 facilities in nine north central Kansas counties and employs 161 people. “Through the real estate, sales and payroll taxes it pays, the co-op is a major contributor to the tax base of local governments, helping to support schools, police and fire protection and other vital community infrastructure,” said Duerksen.

Cooperatives Build a Better World Through all of the above ways, cooperatives build a better world. “We like to talk about ‘the cooperative difference,’ because co-ops offer so many advantages to their members,” said Tim Porter, Board Chairman and a grain producer in Mitchell County. “Our business is owned by its producer-owners. United in a co-op, the power of one is multiplied by the many.”
