I am understanding this to say that if a senior citizen, (which is where I'm headed), does "citizen serve" that they will rec'v additional income, etc. and continued health care. But what if they don't want to or are disabled and can't "citizen serve," does this mean that their health care will not continue? It sure sounds like that to me, please tell me what you all think?
the link: (sorry, u will have 2 c&p the link) (pg.2 / para. 8)
"Obama and Biden will work to provide additional income security, including assistance with retirement and family-related costs, and continuation of health care coverage, for people who participate in citizen service."

I agree w/ Stacy. I know a lot of 'freshly' retired people that are not happy unless they are active. It can be a really hard transition for people that have worked their whole adult lifetime. Many of them get part time jobs just to feel needed or helpful. I don't know that it's right to make them volunteer to receive benefits. That seems wrong. I think it should be optional for them to do anything. I haven't read the info you are talking about though, so I can't comment on what it says specifically.
I know that I have seen some of the people here jump all over one of the regular posters for having the audacity to let her mother come and clean up around her house (nevermind that her retired mother WANTS to), insinuating that she makes her mother work for her. It's easy to judge when you don't know many retired people and haven't seen how that change in their life can be a difficult one.
