  1. I will be 65 in August, Can I sign up on line for Medicare? I received a W-2 reflecting income for taxes in Jan? It’s not on SS statement. What should I do?


    • Hi, Judith. Thanks for your question. First, realize that you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing the Social Security number is what is important. To see if you’re eligible to apply for a replacement Social Security card online or to learn more on the process and what documents you will need to get a card please visit our Social Security Number and Card page. Keep in mind all submitted documents must be either originals or copies certified by the issuing agency and must (unless otherwise indicated) have been issued within the last two years. We cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Once you’ve submitted all the needed documents, it can take up to 10 business days from the date we received the application to mail a replacement card. We hope this helps.

  3. When my husband turned 65 he was automatically enrolled in part a and b for medicare. he dropped part b because he was using the Va facility for health and meds. Va is not reliable and he wants to sign up for part b again. When can he do that? He needs to see a local dr. and specialist. I can not make an account for him because they say we have the same address and will not sign him an account. He really needs the part b.

    • Hi, Lela. First, thanks to your husband for his service to our country. Typically, if he applies after age 65, he can sign up only during the general enrollment period (GEP).The GEP lasts from January 1 through March 31. Coverage would begin July 1. Most people who sign up for Part B during the GEP will have a 10 percent increase in monthly premiums for each 12-month period they did not enroll, but were eligible. For more information about Medicare, check out our publication here. For specific questions about his case, he can call 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and ask a representative to assist him, or he can contact his local office. We hope this helps.

  4. I’m on social security and dating for a while. They’re also on social security. We discussed marriage and need to know if either of our ss payments received will change if we do so. Also, need to know the pros and cons of 2 getting married after being on SS separately for a while,

  6. Why is it so difficult to find “Award Letter”. This is the second time in 18 months that I a have to obtain one and I am confused. This should not be so difficult. I search and do not locate it. Maybe it is staring me in the face, but it should just pop up easily.

    Thank you! N
