I am on Social Security Plan A only. I was a U.S.Census Bureau

Customer Question

I am on Social Security Plan A only. I was a U.S.Census Bureau employee when I retired and I was told I didn't have to take Plan B as I was covered by my health plan. I pay the U.S.Govt. $519 per month and they, in turn, pay my health plan approx. $850 per month for my coverage. As this is getting so expensive for me (I only get $1238 per month S.S.check) I would like to know how much more in penalty amount I would have to have deducted from my S.S. check for Plan B. Coverage, If I give you my S.S. #, can you tell me what my S.S. check amount would be monthly with this deduction. I do remember the man at S,S. office telling me there would be a penalty for not taking Plan B when I was eligible.
