IRS Says Its Own Error Sent $1,200 Stimulus Checks To Non-Americans Overseas

"All right an update to an npr investigation now earlier. This year our team of reporters discovered that stimulus money. From the first corona virus. Relief package had been mistakenly sent to citizens of other countries. The us government previously blamed the recipients for that air but as sasha pfeiffer from our npr investigations team reports the irs. Now says those non-americans were not always at fault and the mistake is likely to happen again. If more stimulus checks go out. Suzanne wig force is a seventy eight year old citizen of sweden who lives in the country's capital stock home and over the summer she was surprised to get a check in the mail from the united states treasury followed by a letter signed by president donald j trump any says the white house washington july thirty first. Your economic impact payment has arrived my fellow american. It was a stimulus. Check for twelve hundred dollars. And i so i can't believe it sending it to me. Why it's crazy isn't it. It's crazy. She says because she is not entitled to that money. The only people eligible for stimulus checks are us citizens and individuals that for tax purposes. The irs calls resident aliens. Suzanne wig force is neither of those now previously. The us government said the reason. Many non-citizens mistakenly received checks. Is they filed incorrect tax returns. That made them appear to be. American with force does not file a us tax. Return asked about this by npr. The irs now acknowledges that some non-americans erroneously received stimulus money through no fault of their own. I'm just upset. I love american. This is so wrong. Because i saw that a number of people were being evicted every month in chicago for instance and also one of those families would have needed. This stimulus check. Why should a swedish citizen living abroad received. Twelve hundred dollars the irs. Now says it mistakenly sent checks to some non-citizens who receive social security and other federal benefits people like wig force. She receives a small social security payment from having worked in california for several years. And she believes that's why the irs erroneously send her stimulus check. I'm not gonna cash. I'm just gonna leave it here. There's no way i'm gonna cash this money. It doesn't belong to me since congress passed. Its coronavirus relief. Package in march the. Us government has put no mechanisms in place to prevent these mistakes from happening again. That means if a new relief plan passes in the final weeks of the trump administration or during the biden administration and if it includes more stimulus payments some of that money is again likely to mistakenly end up in mailboxes. Overseas workforce is even likely to get another check. How much money is bleeding out from the treasury department because of these similars checks. I wonder the. Us government cannot answer that question. The treasury did find that as of late may thirty. Four million dollars in stimulus had gone to people who filed tax return with a foreign address but that includes eligible people like us citizens living abroad and it does not include citizens of other countries who received a check at a us address for example npr interview citizen of the dominican republic. Who was not eligible. Ya gotta check at his former address in massachusetts. That thirty four million dollars also does not include people like wig force who got a check but don't file a us tax return at all. I think the poor folks in the irs. Don't of the bond with to go chasing this end. Kelleher is a vice president at sprint tax. Which does us tax preparation for non-residents. It'd be great if they did. Because i believe that there's millions of dollars that has gone to bless weren't entitled to it or certainly not the intended recipients spring tax has clients from about one hundred and fifty countries who mistakenly received stimulus checks kelleher said the most common were india china south korea vietnam and the united kingdom as numerous nations in latin america. It's awful when we hear of millions of dollars going into the wrong hands but was probably within somewhat acceptable threshold of error or margin of error. Acceptable he said because congress opted for speed over accuracy when it flooded the us economy with money less spring many non-americans who received a cheque in error are now trying to return it because they it will jeopardize their visa or immigration status bush equally. Passer saying well if they were silly enough to make this mistake could their mistake. And i'm not gonna give it back until they ask for it. Then shockley falls in that category. He's seventy four years old and was born in pennsylvania but he moved to australia becoming disillusioned with us. Politics in the nineteen sixties are always been depressed when jfk was killed. I just couldn't get over that. So i started looking for someplace else. Start over so. He gave up his u. s. citizenship. And has now been an australian citizen for about a half century his last trip to the. Us was forty years ago but he to receive stimulus money even though he's not eligible for it and does not file a us tax return. That was the weirdest thing ever check. The mail pulled out check federal reserve treasury. Tingey go over the eagle in that. It's made out to me. What's from america. What the hell's going on here. Why am i getting a check. The government just like suzanne wig force in sweden. Then shockley and australia. He mistakenly got a check because he received social security from having worked in the us. Before moving overseas. I i thought it was a joke and then i went down to the bank us. Can you do some way of verifying. This is legal. The girl come back after five minutes and says it's legal. You got the middle thank you bam. I didn't ask for the money. I didn't expect any money. But as soon as i got stuck in the bank. Yeah you're getting it back. Shockley attributes the mistake to us government incompetence complete stupidity. They're just not doing their job properly. Us treasury officials said they are continuing to assess the accuracy of the stimulus program and the recovery efforts for any eroneous payments sasha pfeiffer on morning edition from npr news.

What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?

What A Day

What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?

"Let's talk about what went down last night. Akilah quick first impression here. All right. So I was prepared for this debate to be just as annoying as the first one and generally speaking I don't think it was it was quieter and less interrupt. The mute button function was good for the majority of the first answers to the moderator's questions. By the end although senseless non sequiturs started creeping back in also say that the moderator last night Kristen Welker was way better like so far ahead of Chris Wallace several weeks ago you know she kept the candidates on topic she forged ahead with better more relevant questions whenever trump threatened to devolve into conspiracy theories and generally speaking she seemed comfortable being there. So that was the VIBE. But Gideon, let's talk about what trump did last night how would you describe what he had to say? Yeah I definitely agree that it was more toned-down but on the substance I, think trump still acts enlarge part like he's running into. Kept, trying to cast his opponent as a career politician and one who was corrupt he brought up that hunter suffer example, but it didn't quite and it was a little bit hard to follow, and that strategy allows him to evade questions about his own term as well as his vision for the future he failed for instance, offer coherent message on the biggest crisis of his presidency covert nineteen and he at times tried to make the Democratic ticket seem more to the left than it is trump. Seems to always have Bernie Sanders on the brain and several times. He came back to the same point about Biden being a longtime politician who hasn't gotten anything done. But there was at least one specific moment where the strategy failed and he pretty remarkable way by turn to the camera and said, the debate should be about the families of people watching and not what the two candidates were talking about and trump kind of fell into a trap with a terrible answer. Here's a clip of that. This isn't about there's a reason why he's. been up all this Malarkey. There's a reason for he doesn't WanNa talk about the the the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family it's about your family and your family's hurting badly if you're making less than if you're a middle class family, you're getting hurt badly right now you're sitting at the kitchen table this morning to decide what we can't get new tires their ball because we have. To wait another month or so or are we going to be able to pay the mortgage who's going to tell her? She can't go back to to community college there the decision making in the middle class families like I grew up in. Scranton claim they're in trouble we should be talking about your families but that's a last thing he wants to talk about I wanted to say I wanted to tell. Me What is it? Ten seconds Mr President go political stupid. Let's get off this China thing and then he looks the family around the table everything just a typical politician I see that's. Difficult politician. That's why I got elected that. Let's get off the subject of China let's talk around sitting around the table. Right come on Joe you. Okay. So if we're following the logic here, trump is coming off as saying I'm not a typical politician I don't care about your family. Almost. Literally, what he's getting at that moment along with one word trump backed away from raising the federal minimum wage were really out of sync with what's going on in the country among working families. So a Gila, what did you make of trump last night? So I mean personally, I'm not giving US seventy four year old man props for not screaming like an infant during a debate like he's been here long enough he I don't know how to act by now. But in terms of the content of his answers, there wasn't really much worth talking about like. You said trump didn't really WANNA talk about his record at all at one point. He did say that he takes responsibility for covert but then he immediately pivoted to the same old static about how everything is China's fault and other points he blamed. Democratic. Governors and criticized overall continued to downplay the virus saying that schools and businesses should fully reopen but he revealed no plan to deal with the spikes and infections. In fact, he claim that there is a vaccine that's ready and we'll be deployed in a few weeks wad squad we know

Buffalo Bills: Super Bowl Contenders?

"Marcel. LOUIS-JACQUES I assume when you got into the business of NFL reporting, you always dreamed, of Tuesday night football. You know I. I don't even know if covered Tuesday night football back at the high school or you've. So this is truly a unique experience. Marcel louis-jacques covers the BUFFALO BILLS FOR ESPN It is the third I believe NFL game on a Tuesday in seventy four years, and we are talking right now on Monday and we're doing that because there has been this steady drumbeat of positive cova tests that we've seen from the Tennessee Titans, the opponent of the buffalo bills on Tuesday night. Over the last couple of weeks, we're talking twenty four positive tests between players and team personnel, and it feels still I presume like this game could still get canceled any time until the ball is actually kicked off. So what are you hearing from the bill side? Are there concerns you've heard from players or coaches about fears around the virus going into this titans game. First of all, we haven't heard anything officially from the bills since Thursday they've been in limbo throughout the week and the weekend and kind of letting that spill over into the contact they put out into the world. But from what we had heard from them, they just WanNa play the game. They don't WANNA lose out on that game check. They don't want to be punished for something that they didn't do in that. You understand you gotta roll with the punches there in this era, but it does At its core kind of feel like a punishment if you can't play and you can get paid because of what another team is doing, it's like when you turn in your assignments but the kid across the table from you keep talking in the whole class gets recess canceled. So there's a little bit of frustration there. But from what they tell us, they trust the league they are just kind of rolling with it. They're finding things out as we're finding things out and it's kind of a tricky situation. For everybody involved. So the flip side of that dynamic, the diligent student and the one that is not getting their work in the way they're supposed to the flip side is like okay well, then the titans should have to forfeit has there been any talk around bills camp around that being a thing they would like to see again, not publicly because they've they've kept that core belief that they just want to play the game back. So we spoke with Mike high on Thursdays one of the last available. Players that was made for us. He said, he didn't even realize postponing canceling Games was a possibility. He just always assumed that. Okay. If this guy test positive, then they're going to have to move forward without that player. So it does get to a point where you can't just keep pushing games back. You know there's only so many times you can do that, and especially if there's a case of explicit negligence from the top down in an organization than forfeiting a game has to be at least considered. It seems harsh but so was the not staying socially distant and not masking up in the facility and all these other allegations that have been levied against the titans.

After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not

"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven. They left fast only taking what they could carry. Their things left nearly exactly as they were the day everything changed to coffee, Cup sit on the kitchen table her daughter's old school uniform is laid out on a bed a calendar on the wall is still flipped to March two thousand eleven. clueless you the kit ago.

This house will be bulldozed soon and the land used as part of a storage site for radioactive topsoil scraped from the earth and the massive cleanup effort Tschumi heads upstairs. And takes one last look at the bedroom shoes to share with her husband Hitter Yuki. He died a few years ago suddenly. And then she walks back down to hand over the keys. The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm. On a big hill overlooking the tropical landscape Ma hidden is yet. She never imagined. My life would be like this guy when we first moved here, I was in my late thirties my husband was in his forties unanue issue we were like, okay. Do we get new jobs? So we decided to do this. We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

We can't deal with that kind of wasted drivers go. Joey's wish might not come true though her family started their business at the right time. The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing.

Ed Markey defeats Joe Kennedy in Massachusetts primary, ending Kennedy family winning streak

"Sure. The big election is November but the election day to watch at least in Massachusetts. This year was the Democratic primary on Tuesday night, which saw congressman Joe Kennedy the third. Yes. That same Kennedy family wage rare intraparty challenge to incumbent Senator Ed Markey. At. First it was a race about generational change and considered Kennedy's to lose. But that changed that generational argument was not as potent here as it has been elsewhere like when now congresswoman Ion Presley pulled off her surprise win in a nearby Boston district just two years ago. Marquis touted his left leaning Boniface including his green new deal sponsorship in the Senate and lockdown a coveted endorsement from congresswoman Alexandra Okay Cortes among other progressive groups plus Marquee Social Media Strategy deployed memes and Tiktok helping to recast the seventy four year old Washington veteran as an extremely online figure popular with younger voters in the end. Marquee delivered a blow. Some are calling the end of. The Kennedy Political Dynasty I'm not sure I agree with that. I very much expect Kennedy to remain in public life and likely run for another office. Again down the line after all, he's only thirty nine but Kennedy's loss on Tuesday was a i. a Kennedy has never before lost in election in Massachusetts. Marquee will now face a Republican this November though the seat is still considered safely. Democrat. So, let's get to the point. It's almost a rarity these days an incumbent, actually fending off a younger primary challenger with a potent last name, but Ed Markey did it. And that is the point four September second twenty

Markey fends off Kennedy in Massachusetts Senate primary that divided Democrats

"Joe Kennedy. The third loses Democratic Primary Challenge of Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey. By Steve Leblanc for the Associated Press in Boston. US, Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts defeated. US Representative Joe Kennedy. The third in Tuesday's hard-fought Democratic primary harnessing support from progressive leaders to overcome a challenge from a younger rival. WHO's a member of America's most famous political family. It was the first time. A Kennedy has lost a race for Congress in Massachusetts Marquis. Appeal to voters in the deeply democratic state by positioning himself as aligned with the liberal wing of the party he teamed up with a leading Progressive New York representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez on the green new deal climate change initiative, and at one point labeled Kennedy quote a progressive in name only that helped Marquis overcome the enduring power of the Kennedy name in Massachusetts. The thirty nine year old congressman sought to cast the seventy four year old marquis as someone out of touch after spending decades in Congress I in the House before moving to the Senate Kennedy said Tuesday night that the results aren't the ones he'd hoped for but pledged to work for Markey's reelection. The senator is a good man. You never heard me say, otherwise Kennedy told supporters at an outdoor rally. Kennedy also suggested that the movement of supporters the campaign pulled together would continue past the current election. We may have lost the final vote count tonight but we built a coalition that will endure. He said I would do this again with all of you in a heartbeat. In, the waning weeks of the campaign Kennedy leaned into his family's long political legacy in Massachusetts his pedigree includes former president John F. Kennedy, former US senator, and US Attorney General Robert F Kennedy, his grandfather, and former US senator Edward Kennedy who held a Senate seat in Massachusetts for nearly half a century until his death in two thousand, nine Marquis countered by leaning into. His own family story growing up in the working class city of Maldon with a father who drove a truck for the Hood Milk Company in one campaign video marquis also paraphrased a famous JFK quote saying we asked what we could do for our country we went out we did it with all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Marquis also found himself on the defensive at times during the campaign with Kennedy. Repeatedly trying to portray him as having a tin ear to Racial Equity Concerns Kennedy Faulted Marquis for his initial opposition to the effort to desegregate the Boston public schools beginning in the nineteen seventies marquis countered by noting that he changed his views on the contentious issue that tour at the fabric of the city he also said, he supported the creation in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy, three of a state Senate seat aimed at helping elect a black senator to the Massachusetts Legislature Kennedy also repeatedly pointed to the father of Dan Roy Dj Henry a young black man from Massachusetts killed by police ten years ago. Henry's father has criticized Marquis saying he failed to help the family seek justice markey said he has apologized to the Henry family and signed a letter seeking a Federal Justice Department investigation into the killing. Marquee also wasn't shy about talking about the Kennedy. Family at one point pressing Kennedy to tell his father former U s representative, Joe Kennedy. The second to stop supporting a Political Action Committee that was running ads against Marquis I'm sure your father is watching right now markey said tell your father right now the you don't want money to go into a super PAC that runs negative ads Kennedy said he had no idea if his father was helping fund the pack late in the race Kennedy also. Landed a major endorsement when Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formerly backed his candidacy while Marquis who served with Pelosi in the house for decades congratulated Kennedy Pelosi's decision angered some of Markey's younger Progressive Supporters Marquee had earlier won the endorsement of Ocasio Cortez and fellow Massachusetts Democratic US senator. Elizabeth. Warren Ed. Markey wasn't afraid. He offered his expertise and partnership. He wasn't scared of big policy and didn't use kid gloves. It's great to watch him overcome the odds and wind tonight Oh Cossio Cortez tweeted Tuesday night. The Corona virus ended the way both candidates could reach out to voters severely limiting more traditional means of electioneering like knocking on doors, shaking hands or. Big rallies instead, the campaigns were largely waged on line with virtual rallies, virtual endorsements, virtual fundraisers, and virtual roundtable events to discuss issues. Eventually, as Massachusetts began to suppress the virus and emerge from a near lockdown, the candidates began to take their campaigns on the road with appropriate social distancing rules and face masks in tow. The showdown drew criticism from some Democrats nationally who feared it would siphon time and money away from the primary goals of defeating President, Donald Trump and winning back control of the Senate. It also wasn't cheap with both Kennedy and Markey raising millions to pay for campaign staff television, and digital ads and old school campaign flyers. Marking now faces a general election contest where he's considered a strong favourite in a district that has historically elected Democrats hill face the winner of the Republican Primary Kevin O'Connor in November.

A Kennedy is on the ballot in Massachusetts. Here's why he's not guaranteed a victory.

"And out front up next we're. Just. From one of the most closely watched primaries this year a young Kennedy on the ballot in Massachusetts but can he unseat a seventy four year old incumbent? Because it's about ideas I am the youngest guy. In. This race. Tonight and the fight for twenty twenty a usual dynamic emerging Massachusetts ahead of tomorrow's Democratic Senate primary. The incumbent in his seventies was support from progressives, his challenger young and Kennedy Manu. Raju is out front. The Hiroshima Political Dynasty the grandson of the leap Robert F Kennedy campaigning to serve in the Senate like his famous great uncles and grandfather before him the. Certainly. I think you're doing great job. Hello. The candidate he's right there. For Life Magazine. Thirty nine year old Joe. Kennedy is facing something unexpected. Seventy four year old senator who has been in Congress for almost forty four years. Has Managed to galvanize support of young voters. Ahead of Tuesday's Massachusetts Senate primary I think that a lot of young people that are our age at least. From from our town have been similarly really inspired by Ed Markey polls show Senator Ed Markey as the favourite threatening to make the four term. The first Kennedy to lose a race in Massachusetts unlike other primaries this year were democratic incumbents have been ousted by liberal newcomers. Marquis has managed to turn that dynamic on its head because it's about ideas. I am the youngest guy. In this race Alexandria, it's been murky seizing the mantle of the insurgent, touting his support of liberal causes at the green new deal and endorsement of the progressive firebrand. Alexandria Cossio Cortes such the green new deal that I introduced Alexandria Cossio. Healthcare justice is on the ballot. That's Medicare for all that I next the Bernie. Sanders. When he introduced it yet, it's been Kennedy with the badging of the party establishment leader Speaker Nancy Pelosi Allies have been frustrated that marquee has not been held to account for full record over four decades like his backing of the Iraq war in two thousand and two the NAFTA deal in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, his position on racial issues like school desegregation dating back to the nineteen seventies progressive willing to look those hurdles that's up to a progressive movement. Out. I think an awful lot of folks in many parts of Massachusetts have a different view of that records and what that means to our communities after going door to door in working class Boston neighbors weekend. Kennedy. Accused Marquis of abandoning the state. He's been less time in the state than anybody else delegation in an interview with CNN Marquis fired back there is. No real record of Congressman Kennedy in his eight years leading on issues of of generational change in Washington Kennedy has waited until late in the campaign to stress that it's his family I. Guess It's a fighting. His blood wants to continue in the Senate tried to be really clear that it's GonNa Balance It's not my father, my grandfather brothers or anybody else and. You vote for me you're going to get now Kennedy does pull off an upset on Tuesday night it could be thanks in part to the fact that he is allies have spent more on television advertising than Markey and his allies roughly two million dollars more. But if he loses what Kennedy will do next still an open question we posed that question to him he didn't want to entertain it and said, he looks forward to running through the finish line and celebrating on Tuesday night.

"And is it sexist or not, well, you know, someone? Someone like Elizabeth Warren comes out and people came out right away and go. Yeah. You know, she's smart. And she says, but she's not likeable and a lot of people say, well, that's sexist you, right? That that's not sexist. I think this is such an infuriating debate. Brian and women just have no appreciation for how much damage they're doing to women if they make everything sexist when a woman is attacked on the presidential campaign trail for you know, with real sexist attacks about her hair or the way she walks or her weight, or I don't know whatever the way that she backed off of something let's say if if she's called week, or you know, if something down the road is considered sexist. No one's going to take it seriously. If everything is sexist was Warren, just isn't that likeable either as Bernie Sanders, neither is Ted Cruz as I point out in the peace. No one has been mocked more than Ted Cruz in his career for being unlikable. This is just not something. That's new Richard.

This has been this is as old as the hills and the idea that the that this dominant democratic dominant female candidacy race, all these women are jumping in we're going to start this conversation that you can't say that they're not likeable because it's sexist is gonna do short term damage to the Democrats, but long term damage to women, and I hope they take that seriously. Interesting fascinating taken one hundred percent agree with you. But as a guy, I'm limited on impact. And by taking that side, they'll say, well, what did I tell you another guy saying something's south, Texas? You're very likable, and all I can say is I feel really clean saying that it's not as sexist remark. It's just a super likable guy. And I think that's just a human you. You know, we all pick up who makes other people feel better. And who doesn't who are who Pete which people are cold in which people are warm and.

"Serious problems with that happening with insurance contracts, obviously have to pay more. What have you occasionally one will come up? But essentially, we always made sure that that was funded properly to begin with. So that you had less likelihood of the of the of the contract getting to a place where you have to put huge amounts of money to keep it enforce and there's time to react. And the longer you go before you start putting more money in the bigger the premiums, and what people don't really understand about these insurance contracts is that that there is especially as you get older. I mean, I read that article and everybody's talking about. Know, I didn't I didn't need it needed. It. What is young? But then I thought I would now, and I don't know whether I can afford to pay. Well, if you look in just reading the article, and I see what the the the amounts that they're being asked to put in versus the amounts that will come out. Yes. And this is you know, for for the lady who seventy four years old and she's paying two hundred and fifty dollars a month instead of fifty but if you look at the amount of death benefits is going to be there. She's got a live to a hundred before there will be no return on the money that she's put again going forward. When you're at the point where death is an inevitability. We just don't know when actually death as evidence. The age of twenty five. Further away that at seventy five and statistically speaking. And basically when you buy insurance as a young person, it's a what if situation if you buy or you have it in place as an older person, it's a win situation. And and then you start looking at the last thing, you should do is look at this. As this is costing me. You don't put money in a Bank account and say this Bank account kospi two dollars two hundred and fifty dollars a month. And if I don't have to put money, or they don't have to well, then I won't well that doesn't make sense because in these contracts one thing they are designed to do if you pay attention is to actually be there at some point in time. Why? It's already they're already asking. But and so, and then when you take it to the next step in this stuff that's available now that actually, you know, as we've talked about, you know, ad infinitum in over the over the months is is about the fact that you can actually if they got the right current you can tap that money for for your own care. And and that's what inspires people to do this because they say, look, you know, I can put money in here. At this. And you're gonna give me this amount. When I need care for those folks on the radio, he's he's using his there's. Yes. Yeah. So it's a much larger amount. And they look at that. That's a good deal. You know that I can do that. So it's a matter of understanding how these things work and what they can do. And I think what's unfortunate about newspaper articles and magazine articles that I see ad nauseam coming out from time to time is that they always they always talk about the negative thing. Part of that. And. The end of the article instead of going on a little bit further and talking about if you did it, right? If these folks would have paid more attention etcetera etcetera, then it would have worked out good because the contract itself is is an excellent financial vehicles. Probably because they what they were doing was impugning the person who sold it to him. Who didn't explain it properly would be my my best guess. They left the office. Not understanding what they bought the salesperson. Probably either didn't understand it or didn't care because they made a sale and most people when they buy life insurance are told put X amount, and you're going to get X amount out or your heirs will at some point. That's how most people know understand term insurance their premiums. They pay the same premium. There's an example there when people buy term insurance because that the common knowledge is is that you need it when you need it when you're raising a family, but should but then you don't need it anymore. So just by term insurance. You know, what I see it all the time. People will call. I get calls all the time from individuals who now seventy years old. And their term insurance is running out. And now, it's a whiz. What if anymore, and they put all this money into an insurance contract that now that it's an inevitability? It's just an especially if they're sick. That's even worse because now it's a much shorter period of time. And they want to know what to do with it. And and sure you saved a lot of money. You didn't put it in there. I don't know where you put it. But if you had to put some of it into universal life policy and did it, right? You wouldn't have to worry about the fact that the insurance is going away, and the cops are so there are people who have said, well, I mean, I I there's nothing left for me to ensure you know, I'm getting social security. I'm getting my pension getting this. I have my portfolio. So I'm okay. The life insurance how many people when they get to the point where they're where they're in their say in their seventies. And now, they have, you know, bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc. Now, they still want.
