Will I Need To Contact Social Security To Stop My Part B Premiums From Being Paid By Bank Draft When I Start Drawing Benefits?

Category: 

Because I am waiting until age 70 to claim my Social Security benefit, I pay for Medicare Part B by bank draft. This November I will begin to collect a spousal benefit based on my wife’s work record. Will Social Security automatically cancel my bank draft and begin to deduct my Part B premium from my spousal benefit, or do I need to contact Social Security to request this change? Many thanks.

Hi,

Would Social Security Deduct My Part B Medicare Premiums From My Civil Service Check?

Category: 

When you apply for Medicare A and B at age 65 and do not currently get a SSA benefit, does the SSA deduct the part B Medicare premium from your OPM check if you get retirement benefits from federal employment? Is this automatic, or do I have to instruct them to deduct the Medicare premiums monthly from OPM retirement?

Hi,

Can My Husband Delay Filing For Medicare If He Has Health Insurance Through My Employment?

Category: 

I will be 65 in October and am working full time. My husband retired at the end of December 2017 and will be 66 in April 2019. He wants to hold off on Social Security until age 66 possibly longer. He transitioned to my work health insurance prior to ending his work health insurance in December. My health insurance covers over 25,000 employees.

What Can I Do To Correct My Part B Enrollment Month?

Category: 

I had to change my start date for Social Security twice: once so it would match my retirement date, the second time ( a day later) because my employer offered an early retirement incentive of $40K, for which I was eligible, if I delayed retirement for one month - (til Sept. 1st. 2018).
I made it clear to the rep that my retirement and Medicare B start months must be the same due to continued health coverage from my employer in retirement, in this case September,

When I got home I saw that she noted Oct. pay date is for SEPTEMBER benefits which is correct.
