Palindromically Speaking

An easy puzzle for today:

Palindromic numbers are those that read the same backwards as forwards; for example, 101, 3663, 40904.
Given the palindromic number a = 138831, come up with a palindromic number b composed of the same six digits (as a) but in another order, such that the sum of a + b also equals a palindromic number.
