      Social security retirement but do not qualify for medicare until I am 65 then I qualify for A and B.  Meantime Champ VA covers me.
      I then have to sign up for Champ VA again so there is no out of pocket expense.

        assertive on DKos, but I'll guarantee it's true.

          I don't turn 65 till next year.  Social security said I am not eligible till 65.

            But every year you could get get it and you don't it goes up 10%. I screwed up when I retired because I was told my Postal insurance was better than "B" so I declined it and now it would cost me 140% more. And when we were looking at retirement places they said "You'll just sign over the B to us" and they couldn't believe I didn't have it.

            Ceiling Cat rules....srsly.

            •  Oh My side pocket !!!!! (0+ / 0-)

              The lies people tell us !!!  I appreciate your posts because it made me go hunting... it was not assertive at all..  I remember when I took the retire at 62 thing.. I kept saying to the lady inside at SS...can I get medicare and she said not till you are 65.. Because I knew the Champ VA card expired June 2015.....So I was kinda scared.
              AND even though they are sister entities Champ only pays 70 percent not 80.  

              I will apply while still 64  about 90 days before that birthday not to fall in the gap.
              What do you do ..did you just pay the 140 percent or find a company on that retirement that coverered you?  Thanks !!!
