What do I do if I have lost my Medicare Part B card Is it
What do I do if I have lost my Medicare Part B card? Is it too late for me to sign up for Part A? I turned 65 last October and didn't think that I needed Part A because I have insurance with my employer. But since Obama care went into affect...I think I need it.

I am 56 years old and permanently disabled. I am collecting disability of $1186 per month. I understand that, at full retirement age, my benefits will be switched to Social Security but the amount will not change.My question: my boyfriend will be full retirement age (66) soon. His SS is $2000 per month. We have been discussing marriage and were wondering 1. If we marry, can I collect on his SS at any point? 2. If we marry and he dies, can I collect on his SS? Are there any other scenarios in which I could increase my monthly benefit amounts? We just want to get an idea of the best move to make. Thanks!

I turned 66 in May 2016. I was told by my SS office that at age 66 I could choose my SS or my ex-spousal benefit, and marrying again would not affect it. I was also told that if he died, I would receive twice the benefit, and SS would notify me. I received my first ex-spousal benefit in June. I married in September, and have now moved. I have now been told by another office that due to my marriage, I am no longer eligible for the ex-spousal benefit. I was previously married over 10 years, and divorced in 1991. Is this correct? I consistently have gotten varying responses on different subjects through different offices, which makes planning really difficult - I wanted to wait until age 70 to file against my own record.
