Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to help you today
How are you doing?
In terms of your benefits, you should contact 1-800-772-1213 as soon as possible to inquire as to how much your own benefit is off your own record.
They should be able to tell you that information over the phone, and get your application switched to your own benefit if it is higher. You could even do this today.
Also, since you're drawing social security off of him, your Medicare is based on his record. No big deal, just keep using it as usual. You'll get another new card if you switch to your own benefit
Thank you for a simple, straight forward answer!! I will call them to get this going. Thank you again.
