The retirees in Houston County can expect some extra money. A one time lump sum will be paid to retirees and beneficiaries of retirees who have passed. This means about two dollars per month worked will be provided, with a max of $300.

The Houston County Commission approved the request, but it won't be taken out of their budget until the 2015-2016 fiscal year. The last time a lump sum was paid to retirees was back in 2008.

"We just want to show them our support and show them thank you for what you do and it's a good thing to have for our retirees," said Doug Sinquefield, District 2 Commissioner.

Retirees can expect their pay check sometime in October.
