Customer Question

I am 79. I had an agreement with my employer(the company I formed initially) which is now on the NYSE that I would be carried until the age of 80, which cmome up in November. I have a letter of credible coverage, from the company which states that I have had continues coverage since I left. I need to get part B from the SS office. under the special application program. Will the coverage of insurance be what is necessary to get Part B, or do I need to stiill be employed?

Generally, creditable coverage can only be had by employees, not retirees getting retiree coverage from their employer. Once you stop being employed, and no longer have creditable coverage, you will want to file for Part B and show you HAD creditable coverage for each year after age 65. Mind you, if you didn't have creditable coverage, you can still get Part B, it is just that you will have a much higher premium (10% increase for every year you didn't have creditable coverage.).
