34. I am about at that level with my social security.

My monthly expenses are fairly low. I own a mobile home and only pay lot rent of $367 a month, which includes water and garbage pickup. Then there are the usual utilities, phone, Internet and car and home insurance. I must carry home insurance because I live in Tornado Alley in North Georgia.

Fortunately, I have Medicare that costs me $100 a month that is deducted from the social security check. But I am eligible for food stamps but I have not applied for them yet.
