Medicare and Social Security

About 5000 people turn 65 each day of the year. Almost all of them will receive Medicare and Social Security benefits. Many though will not be able to get the most out of these programs because they don't fully understand them. Also due to this lack of understanding, they will likely not have the coverage they think they have. Jan Warner realized this and wanted to help. As a result Jan has been helping people with these kinds of questions for over 30 years and has developed several resources to help answer your Medicare and social security questions. What follows are just a few examples of why it's important to fully understand Medicare and Social Security benefits. Because if you don't, your future may not be as bright as it once seemed.

Recently Jan was asked about nursing home coverage and Medicare. It seemed that someone was being asked to pay out of pocket for needed care because Medicare coverage had supposedly been denied. In Jan's article, Bill Demand During Medicare, he discusses why this denial was likely premature and what could be done about the problem. Had this person not gotten the information they needed, his wife's financial resources could have been drained.

In another case, a family was faced with the possibility of Medicare stopping payment for needed medical services. Jan's answer for them was Medicaid. But do you know how Medicaid works and how much you can make to qualify?

What about the importance of Medigap coverage? Do you know why you need it? In Jan's article, Social Security - Easy-To-Understand Explanations of Surviving Spouses' and Ex-Spouses' Benefits , he discusses MediGap coverage and why it is important for your furture financial health.

Will you be ready to retire at 65? If you are counting for Social Security to cover many of your expenses, you might be surprised to know that you may not be able to collect until you are 66 or 67. Years ago the rules were changed and now you may not be able to retire as early as your parents did. Find out this and more in Jan's Social Security - Benefit Charts.
