Chester Social Security - New hours

The Chester Social Security Office to Close to the Public a Half Hour Early Each Day and at Noon on Wednesdays
Effective November 19, 2012, the Chester Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. – a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday.  In addition, beginning January 2, 2013, the office will close to the public at noon every Wednesday.

While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-to-face interviews and process claims work without incurring the cost of overtime.   The significantly reduced funding provided by Congress under the continuing resolution for the first six months of the fiscal year makes it impossible for the agency to provide the overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has done in the past.  

In addition, on November 23, the day after Thanksgiving, all Social Security field offices will be closed to the public.  As we did last year, employees working that day will focus on reducing backlogged workloads.

Most Social Security services do not require a visit to a local office.  Many services, including applying for retirement, disability or Medicare benefits, signing up for direct deposit, replacing a Medicare card, obtaining a proof of income letter or informing us of a change of address or telephone number are conveniently available or by dialing our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213.  People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.  Many of our online services also are available in Spanish at

Christmas Tithe

Starting the 'Christmas Tithe'
adapted from an article by Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners,

A recent poll showed that Americans plan to spend more this Christmas season on consumer gifts than they did last year, but give less to charities and ministries that help the poor.
One way to give intentionally is to start a Christmas Tithe.
Keep track of all our holiday spending for gifts this year, and then tithe a percentage of that amount to an organization that directly serves the poor. A tithe is traditionally 10 percent, but you could decide to do less or even more. But make a decision about your Christmas tithe and pledge it to groups that are now struggling to respond to the highest number of Americans in poverty in half a century, and to those who focus on the poorest and most vulnerable around the world. This is a time to give more — not less.
Sit down with your kids and get them involved in the discussion and decision. You may be surprised at how responsive they are to doing this together. After you have opened your presents to each other; decide what to give to others. For ideas, you can use Sojourners’ Just Giving Guide. Such gifts can be given in the name of your children, family, or loved ones. You can also give to charitable organizations that have special meaning to you and your family, like orphanages, food pantries, or agencies that help the homeless or military veterans.
All of that can be part of your Christmas Tithe, teaching lessons of compassion and justice to your children.

Tips for Donating to Charity

Tips for Donating to Charity
Making a charitable donation not only helps those in need, it can also have important tax benefits for you.
Giving Back
Adapted from an article that originally appeared on

Giving to our favorite charities is a worthy way to end the year. Not only can buying gifts for a family in need or helping out at a soup kitchen on Thanksgiving Day be fun, it can also offer financial benefits.
· For most people, it makes sense to give at the end of the year so their money can earn interest throughout the year before they donate it. (More here on when it doesn’t make sense to donate at the end of the year.)
· Consider whether you want to give to a big charity or a small one. At a large organization, your individual contribution might be one of thousands, but the combined impact could affect great change. On the other hand, a small organization may not have a broad impact, but your gift alone could make the difference for one individual or family.
· Pay attention to the holiday giving drives that they launch: Is there an end-of-year match that will double your dollars? Will you receive a nice calendar that will remind you of the organization throughout the year? Do you even see a type of donation that would make a great gift for someone (i.e. adopting one animal of an endangered species)?
· Make sure that all the charities are proper 501(c)3 organizations, meaning that they are registered with the IRS as tax-exempt organizations. You can find out by searching for the organization in the IRS non-profit charities database, which has the complete list of organizations holding 501(c)3 status. If your chosen charity is not on this list, your contribution won’t be tax-deductible.
· try to give to an organization that actually gets the results you seek. You can get a sense of effectiveness through the websites listed above as well as through the Better Business Bureau, all of which rate charities based on factors such as how they spend their budgets, how much they spend to raise funds and how transparent their finances are.

If you still feel you need more information to make a good decision, call the organization itself to find out what they are accomplishing in your area of interest, or if they have special holiday fundraising programs to which you can donate.
· Be sure to get a matching gift from your company if it offers that as a perk. Company matches are a quick and easy way to increase your impact.
· if choosing between sending a check or attending a charity event, opt for the direct donation. As Charity Navigator puts it, “Special events, such as galas and golf outings, are notoriously inefficient ways to raise money for a charity. Not only are these events outright costly (invitations, catering, entertainment, and so on), but planning a fancy ball often diverts staff time away from the charity’s mission.”

Also, a straight-up donation is better for your taxes. If you itemize your deductions, you’ll be able to deduct the full amount of your donation, whereas, if you were to attend a gala, you wouldn’t get to write off the full amount of your ticket, because the costs associated with the gala ticket (dinner, alcohol, etc.) are not counted as part of your donation.
· Try out a mini-volunteering opportunity like, a microvolunteering site that allows you to give your time online. On Sparked, non-profits post jobs that they need done on a computer, and if you have ten minutes or a full hour, you can log in and help them with their work. It helps non-profit organizations save the money they would spend on hiring someone to do the job, and helps you give even if you don’t have cash to spare right now.

How to Get a Tax Deduction

You’ll only get a tax deduction if you itemize your taxes.
This only makes sense for people whose deductions would be greater than the standard amount, a category that can include property owners, business owners and people with numerous medical expenses. If you’re not sure whether it makes sense for you to itemize, consult an accountant or a tax service.
· In order to get the deduction for your 2011 taxes, you must donate the money on or before December 31st. However, if you are buying property and your accountant expects that you will itemize your deductions next year, then it may make sense for you to wait until January to donate. That way, you will receive the full tax benefit of your gift and, as long as your charity’s fiscal year does not end December 31, the gift will still fall within their tax year.
· If your donation is less than $250, you only need a bank record or receipt; if it’s more, the organization must provide a written confirmation. If you donate stock or anything else beside cash, the deductible amount is fair market value of the property.

Free Holiday Meal - Sunday December 2nd

Free Veterans Photo ID

Delaware County veterans can now obtain a free Veterans Photo Identification card at the Government Center in Media, enabling them to access discounts offered to veterans by various businesses, restaurants and services.

The new Veterans ID Program was launched recently by Delaware County Council, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Recorder of Deeds in a program also attended by several veterans.

The Veterans ID card will be issued at no charge to all honorably discharged veterans from 9a.m. to 3p.m. weekdays at the Recorder of Deeds office, Room 108, at the Government Center.

The ID card enables veterans to access discounts offered by local businesses as a way of showing their appreciation to veterans for their service to the country.

To receive a photo ID card, the veteran must present a DD-214 or equivalent military discharge issued under honorable conditions and a current photo ID card such as a driver’s license.

“This is just one way that we can show our appreciation to veterans of all ages who bravely served our country in all branches of the military,” said County Council Vice Chair Mario Civera Jr., a U.S. Air Force veteran.

“We have heard from our veterans that a photo ID card would be helpful to them, and we recognized that this was a service we could provide at the county level,” Civera said.

At the same time, the county is conducting outreach to businesses who offer veterans discounts in order to list them on the county website for Veterans Affairs. Businesses interested in participating in the veterans discount program can contact the County Veterans Affairs office at 610-891-4539. The discounts are at the discretion of the business and will be posted on the Veterans Affairs website. The site will be updated on a regular basis, so new businesses can be added at. Each business will also receive a certificate of participation to display at their location.

“Whether they served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, other deployments or here in the United States, we owe a debt of gratitude to our veterans, and this is one way of showing our appreciation,” Civera said.

Civera was the first veteran to be issued a Veterans ID Card. He also listed his business, Civera’s Deli in Upper Darby, on the discount site.

He explained that veterans who cannot locate their DD-214 or military discharge documents can apply for copies through the Veterans Affairs office, on the ground floor of the Government Center.

For more information about the Veterans ID Program, or other veterans’ services, contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 610-891-4645 or visit the website at

Buyer Beware - Shopping Scams

A little late with this post but the shopping season is not over yet.  So please, Be Careful Out There.

Avoiding Black Friday Scams by 6 ABC Action News
PHILADELPHIA - November 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- As Black Friday approaches, the Philadelphia District Attorney's office has issued a warning about the latest online and in-person scams targeting shoppers.

"There is always somebody looking to separate you from your money," said District Attorney Seth Williams in a statement. "The best course of action is prevention. Many thieves choose their victims because the thieves see an opportunity. If you take away the opportunity, chances are you won't become a victim."
The D.A.'s office says it is monitoring several new scams this year, and warns consumers to be on the lookout for the following:

Used gift cards - Cards reported as stolen can later be disabled, leaving you with a worthless piece of plastic.

"One day only" bargain e-mails - If you receive any unsolicited Black Friday e-mail, don't click the links, and don't give out your credit card number.
Fake auctions/classified ads - Make sure the seller advertising the product is legitimate. Do a Google search of their name, username, e-mail address, or anything that might point to something suspicious.
Steeply discounted electronics If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, the D.A. warns. There are dozens of "fake" online electronics stores that don't have anything at all to sell. They're only out to get your credit card number.
Parking lot bait-and-switch - Never buy electronics from strangers that approach you in a parking lot. It's always a scam.
Authorities are also advising people NOT to use debit cards for purchase things online, big-ticket items, or at restaurants or gas stations. They suggest you use credit cards instead.

Youth Heart Watch at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A letter from Youth Heart Watch at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We would like to inform you about a special opportunity that is available to children/teenagers at the Daniel E. Rumph II Recreation Center. The Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation, in partnership with the Youth Heart Watch Heart Health Screening Team at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), will provide free heart screenings for children, 5 - 19 years of age, on Saturday December 1, 2012 at The Daniel E. Rumph II Recreation Center.

Address of Recreation Center: 100 East Johnson Street

Philadelphia, PA 19144

The Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation was created in July, 2005 to bring awareness to Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) and Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). As well as provide FREE screening for heart disease that causes SCA, and to place Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) into all Recreational Facilities in the tri-state area.

Why is screening the hearts of our children important? Every year, thousands of children die from sudden cardiac arrest. Most of the time, these conditions can be found by conducting a simple and non-invasive exam called an electrocardiogram (ECG) or echocardiogram (ECHO). Once found, these conditions can be treated.

The screening is administered by the Cardiology Team from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. You will receive a form with your child’s results if the ECG is normal. If results are considered abnormal, you and your doctor will be informed of the recommendations for follow-up. In addition, the information gathered from the screening will be used as part of a research project currently underway. The findings from this project will support the idea that screening the hearts of children is affordable, practical and saves lives.

In order for your child to participate in this screening, a parent or legal guardian must be present. You will be asked to sign a consent form giving Dr. Victoria Vetter permission to use the data from your child in her research study. Your child’s personal identifying information will not be a part of the study. If your child is over 18 years of age, he or she will be asked to sign the consent.

We hope that you will take advantage of this special opportunity. If you have any questions about the screening, please contact Noreen Dugan, R.N. (Project Manager) at 267-426-5247 or the Youth Heart Watch e-mail address (


Members of the Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation and the Cardiology Center at CHOP


The study team will meet you at the registration desk so we can review and sign the consent form at the screening visit giving permission to Dr. Victoria Vetter to conduct the tests and use the data in her research study. Your child’s personal identifying information will not be a part of the study. All signatures on the consent form need to be witnessed on the day of the visit.

You will need to complete a list of questions about your child’s heart health. The Heart Health Questionnaire can be completed on a paper format. We will also ask your child to:

-Have his or her height, weight and blood pressure measured.

-Have an electrocardiogram (ECG), which is a simple test that records the electrical activity of the heart. We will place stickers on your child’s chest. The stickers are connected to wires. The wires transfer the reading of your child’s heartbeat onto a screen and ECG paper. (See picture to your left.)

-If the ECG shows a possible abnormality, your child will have a screening echocardiogram (ECHO), which is an ultrasound or a picture of the heart created by sound waves. During the ECHO a little gel is placed on your child’s chest. A wand is used to take pictures of your child’s heart. (See picture to your left.)

-A pediatric cardiologist (a children’s heart doctor) from CHOP may listen to your child’s heart.

-Both tests are easy and painless.

Additional Information regarding how to participate in the screening:

Sign-up sheets will be available at the Daniel E. Rumph II Recreation Center. You will be able to pick a time to come to have the testing done.

If your child is playing any sports/activities prior to coming to the screening (the night before or morning of), please be sure that they are well hydrated. Dehydration can lead to an increased heart rate.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothes.

All ECGs will be done behind a privacy screen.

Boys will be asked to remove their shirt to get their ECG.

Girls may be asked to unhook their bras (NO sports bras) to get their ECG.

We will have patient gowns available if your child would like to wear one for the procedure.

This visit should take approximately one hour for your child.
