If you’re a disabled, blind, or elderly person who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you’ll automatically get a $1,200 electronic stimulus payment if you didn’t file a 2018 or 2019 tax return. (If you did file a return for one of the last two years, the amount of your payment will be based on information contained on your most recent return). However, non-filers who receive SSI benefits, and have (or take care of) children 16 years old or younger, can get an extra $500-per-child added to their stimulus check—if they act before May 5.

The UK’s #1 Provider of the Best Personal Alarms

WE REMAIN OPEN FOR BUSINESS AS USUAL FOLLOWING THE RECENT GOVERNMENT MOVEMENT RESTRICTIONS – CALL, EMAIL OR SIMPLY PLACE YOUR ORDER ONLINE.

With the UK Government announcing that every Briton over the age of 70, or with underlying medical conditions, should self-isolate at home for 12 weeks, there has never been a more important time to make sure that your loved ones are safe when that time comes.

The 3 Personal Development Goals Successful People Pursue Habitually


5 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


If you Google “daily habits of successful people” you’ll find almost every business-focused media outlet represented in the results. But if you’re looking for a guaranteed roadmap to success, don’t get excited just yet. If you read all of those articles, or even a few of them, you’ll soon realize that successful people have a wide range of daily habits.

Some say you have to rise early, some sleep until noon then work from their bed for another hour. Some say to get the toughest thing out of the way first, some start their day in an easy flow of reading over coffee and don’t “eat the frog” until later. Some plan out their day the night before, some start their day by devising a plan. Some hit the jogging trail first thing, some barely take

Personal Information | Wex | US Law

right of privacy: access to personal information

The right of privacy has evolved to protect the ability of individuals to determine what sort of information about themselves is collected, and how that information is used. Most commercial websites utilize “cookies,” as well as forms, to collect information from visitors such as name, address, email, demographic info, social security number, IP address, and financial information. In many cases, this information is then provided to third parties for marketing purposes. Other entities, such as the federal government and financial institutions, also collect personal information. The threats of fraud and identity theft created by this flow of personal information have been an impetus for right of privacy legislation requiring disclosure of information collection practices, opt-out opportunities, as well as internal protections of collected information. However, such requirements have yet to reach all segments of the marketplace.

Personal Accounts

Personal accounts, including memoirs, journals, diaries, autobiographies, and life histories, are important historical sources that help us understand the human condition. Image of a personal account Everybody has a personal history; every life has its share of joy and sorrow, victory and tragedy. These are the stories we tell about our lives that usually portray a larger picture of a life in historical context. In reading a personal account of someone far removed from your own culture and historical period, it is possible to learn about the foreign within the familiar framework of an unfolding life. The comparisons and contrasts between the lives of the reader and the subject inevitably spring to mind.

 

All personal accounts imply motivation on the part of the subject. A written document implies a certain level of literacy and an attitude of self-reflection. Orally recorded accounts require a vehicle of transmission, perhaps a scholar who records interviews with an individual.
