Hi Donna, the payments should come right out of your existing SS benefits. At that time, You can go to ssa.gov/myaccount to download a benefits verification letter that will state how you get SS in X amount, and that Medicare premium of Y amount is DEDUCTED. Your SS payment date should NOT change. Your birthdate, then, falls on a date between the 1st and 10th of the month, which would provide for payment on the 2nd Wednesday.
