Hurricane Earl prompts early delivery of Social Security checks

By Ed O'Keefe

Hurricane Earl is prompting the U.S. Postal Service to deliver monthly Social Security benefits checks a bit earlier.

Letter carriers will deliver the checks early to locations in the Mid-Atlantic, specifically coastal areas of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. Some checks will arrive in the mail today, while others should arrive on Thursday.

The Treasury Department will inform banks of the early deliveries, USPS said. The Social Security Administration also plans to raise the limit on third-party draft payments to help with the immediate payment processing.

Jeez. What a lot of extra effort just to help out those "anti-American" people, eh Glen Beck?

If we could just get enough of those teaba . . .. errr . . . partier people in office so they can fulfill their campaign promises to dismantle all these programs that do nothing to help their corporate masters no one would have to worry about hurricanes!!
