If I do not use medicare, are my premiums deducted from my benefits recoupable?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I am covered by an employers insurance and have always been even though deductions have been made for medicare since I was eligible. I took my SS at age 62, and am now 70. Can I recover that money, since I have never been enrolled in part b, and what are the ramifications?

Can I recover that money, since I have never been enrolled in part b, and what are the ramifications?

Medicare tax are mandatory applied to all wages.

That tax is partly withheld from your wages and partly paid by your employer.

You may ONLY claim a refund for Medicare tax is withheld by mistake.

Whether you choose not to apply for Medicare - that may not be used as a reason for the refund.

Sorry if you expected differently - but you may not recover Medicare taxes you already paid,

and if you continue to work - your wages will continue to be subject to Medicare tax.
