Hi Gary

The only thing changing in May is that some of the filing methods that were available for married couples are no longer available after May 1 - since you are already drawing, they would not be available to you anyways. I'm sorry, but you will not be able to increase your income -- however, you aren't going to lose anything, either.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
