The result is that your money grows faster because you are earning interest on dollars that would otherwise be going to Uncle Sam. Then it's up to you when to access your funds based on your own financial situation. This can be at a time that offers additional advantages such as being in a lower tax bracket. Important The current earnings from a tax-deferred annuity when not withdrawn are not included in the Social Security Income Tax Formula or for the new "Catastrophic Health Care Charge". We'd like the opportunity to discuss the benefits of tax-deferral with you. Please call Mike Hamilton at 472-6171.

Telephone rate hike approved On Feb. 1 the Oregon Public Utili- ty Commission approved a rate re- structuring request by United Tele- phone Company that will raise resi- dential phone bills in the West Val- ley by $2 per month. The rate changes took effect im- mediately after the PUC made its de- cision. The basic phone rate increased from $8.10 per month to $10.10 per month. Businesses in the West Val- ley had their base rates increase by $3.75 per month, from $14.90 to $18. 65 per phone. United Telephone said the chang- es will lower rates for half of its 47,000 Oregon customers and raise rates for the other half.
