"Silly Little Numbers!"

If people are the
only ones who use
money, how important
can it really be?

Silly little numbers!

I can't get two columns in the PDF

1/4/09 Update: So far I can get the whole article to be 1 column or two columns, but I can't get the title page to be one column and the body to be two columns. So it doesn't behave as suggested here.

Notes from the 11/7/08 Living with Cancer Conference

Joanne  Rawlings-Sekunda from the Maine Bureau of Insurance
  • 800-300-5000
  • http://www.maine.gov/pfr/insurance/
  • They have a staff of 11.
  • 8 of the 11 deal with consumer complaints
  • In general with insurance, the fewer restrictions, the more expensive.

Steve Brakey(sp?) is a Technical Expert from the Bangor SSA office
  • He acknowledged that it's hard to reach the Bangor office by phone. They have one line for all of Maine and Eastern Canada and Quebec.
  • If you call the national 800 number, they're looking at the same computers that they look at in Bangor.
  • If you must call, the best times are Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. 
  • Since I worked in Canada I may be able to get benefits from Canada. I should contact the office in Fredericton NB

I'm not sure who said this:
  • File complaints online - I guessing this is Maine Insurance complaints.
