Good morning, just a quick check in - I am still awaiting your ball park income figures for 2013 and 2014. Thanks!

SSI sent a me second letter explaining why the change on my benefits. It turns that my benefits will not change. And I will be under the 80/20 plan because I have been on Medacare since 2010.
Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 11 months ago.

80/20 applies to all of use on original Medicare, not because we have been on Medicare since 2010. However, are you saying you no longer need to learn "why" your benefits have changed?
