A Few Pics of Our Delaware Beach House

We bought a waterside house in Fenwick Beach a week before Hurricane Sandy. (Fenwick Beach is essentially the Delaware tip of Ocean City.)  Now that we've finished repairing hurricane damage, we're going to offer it for weekly/weekend rent to friends this summer to help recover some cost.   It's SOOO quiet and relaxing, with it's own boat-ready 50-foot canal bulkhead at the back door.  It has an awesome 3D blue ray TV system.  There's a brand new community pool down the street and lots of flat, quiet streets for strolling and bicycle riding. The actual beach (Fenwick Beach) is a quick drive down to the end of Light House Road.   In a nutshell, the Fenwick beach house is quiet and relaxing, the boat launch is at the end of the street, your private dock is at the back door, the beach is down the street, and the bustle of Ocean City is less than 10 minutes away.

Dock your boat bayside at your back door. Or launch a kayak!!

Living room with 3D blue ray TV.  3D is Awesome!!

How to Set Up Direct Deposit for Your Federal Pension

Having your Federal Pension direct deposited to your bank is pretty simple. Fill out the Direct Deposit Information Form, OPM Form 3206-0226.  It's a one-pager.  Be sure to sign it.  Mail it to the Office of Personnel Management address on the form.  That's it.

You can use the same form to have your pension paid to you via a Direct Express debit card.  The Treasury Department doesn't want to send out paper checks anymore, so you pretty much will need direct deposit or the debit card.
