I only worked in the states for 10 years, which entitled me to medicare, and social security. My money is a pittance, but to get medicare was my aim.
I have an H.M.O. so last year my social security was $152. They deducted $7.50 for medicare, which left me $145 a month.
I just received details for 2,020, and it went up to $154. The deductions are $114.60, which leaves me $40 a month social security. I don’t know whether it is my H.M.O. that didn’t enter the correct paperwork for me, or whether it is the social security department.
So now it will be lots of phone calls to find out. It’s not much, but I would like to see at least a hundred dollars a month.
Nothing runs smoothly, does it.
