Paradise is Family


It has been many years since I last updated this blog, but just to update anyone not in the know, I and my family have moved to the other side of the world (United States).  I still ask the question if our choice of moving here is the best choice to make, but since my husband receives full health coverage having been given a higher rating on his disability (he now belongs to Priority Group 1) the choice seems to have been made.  He is already 70 years old and being in that age, he has a myriad of health problems.

Fortunately for us, under the present Affordable Care Act, the veteran family (including the immigrant wife) receives health coverage.  I do not know how long that will be, considering that Trump is set on reducing state-sponsored health coverage. At least, for the time being, while I study for the NY bar, my son and I are fully covered.

The way I see it, I have five years while the present Philippine President is "changing" the Philippines, for me to decide whether I and my family will come back.  It will help me become vested to receive my husband's Social Security benefit within that time. I can decide also in three years if I want to become a U.S. citizen, and potentially lose my Philippine license until the time I apply for dual citizenship.
