      sebrina,

      this is a good question because im in a similar situation. i was told that you would be asked to provide a letter of your husbands employment. not necessarily his pay stubs if you dont want to give those. one or the other. theyre going to need to know how much he makes on a weekly basis. it wont affect you getting benefits, but its counted for total household income. make it clear that your just applying for yourself.

      are you disabled in any way?

          To serbrina :
          You have mentioned that your husband and your children have insurance and you do not have any. If your husband is employed, he can also put you on his insurance being a lawful wife.
          As regards Medicaid Mr. Kevinb is right. You should follow his lead.
          Good luck.

                OUTLOOK FOR SOCIAL SECURITY IS DETERIORATING

                The annual report on the financial health of Social Security and
                Medicare was published last week. And contrary to some rosy
                interpretations in the press, the systems' long-term prospects
                are deteriorating rapidly.

                Right now, Social Security and Medicare add money to the federal
                budget because the payroll taxes they collect are more than
                enough to cover the full costs of benefits both programs pay out.

                o But by 2008, Social Security and Medicare will stop adding
                money to the federal budget and will begin draining money
                away.

                o By 2013, to pay full benefits the two programs will need
                about 5 percent of all federal income taxes -- almost $100
                billion -- in addition to what they will collect in
                payroll taxes.

                o By 2040, it will take nearly half of all the federal
                government's income tax revenue to pay for Social Security
                and Medicare -- in addition to the payroll taxes they will
                already collect.

                If we don't agree to the transfer of all that budget money,
                benefits will have to be cut for younger and future workers.

                Social Security promises $27 trillion more in benefits than it
                can afford to pay. Experts warn that to avert the looming
                crisis, action must be taken now. The answer is to establish
                personal retirement accounts -- with some portion of current
                taxes being invested in the stock market, where it can grow and
                provide benefits to baby boomers when they retire.

                  Without reform, Social Security and Medicare will consume one-
                  third of our grandkids' income.

                  The Social Security annual report that was released last week
                  said the Social Security system promises $27 trillion more in
                  benefits over the next 75 years than it can afford with current
                  payroll tax rates. But what does that mean for the average
                  American worker?

                  Currently, the average American pays 15.3 percent of each
                  paycheck into Social Security and Medicare - 12.4 percent for
                  Social Security and 2.9 percent for Medicare. Technically, you
                  pay half and your employer pays half, but most economists
                  consider the employer half as forgone wages by the employee, so
                  ultimately, the employee is responsible for both.

                  o By 2030, for example, when Generation X will begin
                  retiring, Social Security and Medicare will require a
                  payroll tax rate of about 25 percent to pay full benefits
                  - a 60 percent increase from today's rate.

                  o When today's college-age students will be retiring, about
                  2050, workers will face a payroll tax rate of 30 percent
                  to pay full Social Security and Medicare benefits.

                  o By the time today's newborns retire, workers will be
                  paying 37 percent of their income - more than one out
                  of every three dollars they own - just to keep Social
                  Security and Medicare benefits flowing.

                  These tax rates are before families pay federal and state income
                  taxes. Of course, that leaves our kids and grandkids very little
                  money to spend on other family priorities like buying a house,
                  sending their kids to college or saving for their own retirement.

                  This illustrates the need for reform. If we don't fix the Social
                  Security system, the burden falls to our kids and grandkids.

                  If you thought a Social Security crisis was looming already, you should know it could get a lot worse quickly, if the Bush administration cuts a sweetheart deal with Mexico.

                  State Department and Social Security Administration officials are working quietly on a plan that rewards Mexican lawbreakers for their lawlessness. Millions of both legal and illegal aliens from Mexico could start collecting Social Security benefits.

                  The pending deal differs from similar agreements. So-called totalization agreements have been around since the 1970s. They allow foreigners who worked legally in the United States and paid Social Security taxes to collect benefits.

                  Almost all of the 20 existing agreements are with European nations. The cost to U.S. taypayers is a total of $183 million for 94,000 beneficiaries, according to the Social Security Administration. By contrast, the Mexican deal could cost, according to National Review's Joel Mowbray, $345 billion during the next 20 years. That's billion with a "B.''

                  Take the fact that about half of the 8 million to 11 million illegal aliens in the United States are from Mexico. Take the fact that since 1990 about $300 billion has been paid from the earnings of illegal aliens using fake Social Security numbers. Add the fact that Social Security pays on a "progressive" scale, meaning low-income payers receive a heck of a lot more money in benefits than they paid in, and that Mexican illegals by and large are unskilled.

                  Such a totalization agreement with Mexico promises to become a money pit for Americans, arising from the sheer volume of people involved, Mexicans' high proportion in the illegal-alien population and their vast reliance on fraud, such as fraudulent Social Security numbers and other identity fraud.

                  This agreement uniquely "provides a foreign government Social Security money even for those of its citizens who have worked illegally in America," immigration lawyer Matt Hayes writes on FOXNews.com. He further points out that the Mexico deal "will dismantle the chief provision of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act, a law which has saved U.S. taxpayers $72 billion since its inception, because it will give Social Security payments to illegal aliens and legal aliens who have not paid into our payroll tax system for the requisite 10 years."

                  Ironically, the Bush administration already has warned of the impending cash crunch that Social Security faces. That's the impetus behind allowing people to save a portion of their Social Security payments in a personal-investment account.

                  The Social Security program will go bankrupt in 2038, so policymakers have been looking for a way to salvage it financially. But "bankrupt" doesn't really capture the problem.

                  In the first place, the Social Security "trust fund" is an accounting gimmick. It represents no real, separate account of money. Under the "pay-as-you-go" system, the portion of revenue that's attributed to Social Security on the books will start falling behind benefit payments in 2016. The accounting ruse will show the trust fund as empty in 2038, with baby boomers then all retired.

                  "Pay as you go" means that wage earners currently in the workforce pay Social Security taxes that pass through the Treasury doors, are accounted and sent right out to current beneficiaries. At present, the income and payroll taxes of 3.3 workers fund the Social Security benefits of each retiree. By 2030, the worker-to-beneficiary ratio will be 2-to-1. By 2075, there are expected to be 1.85 workers per Social Security pensioner.

                  That means the bottom line, when boomers' retirement years roll around, is that Social Security will bleed red ink, bumping directly against the rest of federal expenditures demanding cash. With Mexico on the Social Security redistribution-of-wealth dole, this sweetheart deal would be sweet only for Mexico and awfully sour for Americans, both retirees and taxpayers. So guess who will laugh all the way to the bank?

                  Our politicians should remember that senior citizens vote more faithfully than any other demographic group and that the 65-and-older crowd is growing. Politically, this scheme risks Social Security's financial stability for the sake of placating Mexico and pandering to Latino special-interest activists. It pokes a finger in the eye of American senior citizens.

                  If policymakers really want to save Social Security, first do no harm. The Mexico deal would do nothing but harm -- not just to the program, but to hardworking Americans.

                    Immigration Moratorium Bill Gains Momentum!

                    CCN and ASAP! Coalition Allies Propel HR 946

                    Moratorium Needed for U.S. National Security



                    CCN and its ASAP! Coalition allies have been working hard to move H.R. 946, the Mass Immigration Reduction Act of 2003, through the House and it looks like our work is really paying off. In only 2 weeks since its introduction, two new co-sponsors have signed on to the bill for a total of 8 co-sponsors. Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis (R-VA) and Congresswoman Barbara Cubin (R-WY) have signed on to support the Moratorium bill. CCN applauds our activists who helped make this achievement possible. Sending letters and calling your congressmen does make a difference. Keep up the great work!

                    The U.S. needs a moratorium not only to protect our environment, resources, economy, taxpayers, budget, and wage levels, but also to protect our national security. Indeed, stopping mass immigration is essential to protecting national security as the following statement from the National Commission on Terrorism makes evident:

                    "The massive flows of people across U.S. borders make exclusion of all foreign terrorists impossible."- June 2000

                    Take Action:

                    1) To continue building momentum please call and fax your representative and urge him/her to co-sponsor H.R. 946, the Mass Immigration Reduction Act of 2003 with an amendment to limit the numbers to an all-inclusive 100,000 per year. Your congressmans contact information is available at www.house.gov/writerep The more letters and phone calls they receive, the closer we will move to passage. Also, ask your Senators to sponsor a companion Immigration Moratorium bill in the Senate.

                    2) Ask the other organizations you support what they are doing now and what they plan to do in the future, to pass H.R. 946.

                    3) Please give our efforts a boost! Make a special donation to CCN at www.carryingcapacity.org then click on "Support CCN", or send a donation to CCN, 2000 P Street, N.W., Suite #310, Washington, DC 20036.

                      If that is what the medicade office told you, that's what it is. It's no point for you to ask the same question here.

                          IMMIGRATION LAW
                          ************************************************************************
                          WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today called on
                          Governors nationwide to consider utilizing section 213A of the Illegal
                          Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, which
                          ensures reimbursements are sought from sponsors who have filed
                          affidavits of support on behalf of aliens receiving public benefits.

                          "State budgets are being strained to an incredible degree, there is a
                          federal law that can help," said Tancredo. "Put simply, this provision
                          allows States and/or counties to recoup some of their cost for providing
                          social services, including Medicaid to legal immigrants."

                          "The requirement of sponsorship for aliens wishing to enter the country
                          is a century old provision of law, which was designed to prevent welfare
                          from becoming the promise of the good life in America . Every person
                          that has come into the United States under the family reunification
                          provision of immigration law has had to identify someone here who swears
                          to relieve the State of any social service costs incurred by the state
                          for the immigrant. It's time to enforce this provision of law,"
                          concluded Tancredo.
