    Off Topic Post about SSDI & Medicare


    This is off topic, but I need some help from someone with personal experience with this issue.
    I Googled for hours with no results.
    I called the SSA & got someone who knew about 3 words of English.


    The issue is SSDI & Medicare payments.


    I draw a check monthly from SSDI.


    I start getting Medicare September 3 this year.


    Will I get 2 checks ? One from SSDI & one from Medicare ?


    Or will Medicare wipe out the SSDI money ?


    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Public or private messages welcomed.

    How are you getting Medicare if you are less than 65, I just looked at your profile and you were born in 1955.

    Also if you are getting social security disability it comes with Medicare so how are you not getting Medicare? If you do not want to put it here you can message me the answer, my husband is an accountant

    Will the one check be SSDI & Medicare combined or will the SSDI be stopped & the check amount ONLY be the Medicare amount ?

    Got disabled 2 years ago.
    Been drawing SSDI money.

    Had to wait 2 years to get Medicare.

    If the SSA cuts off the SSDI & only gives me a Medicare payment, I'll be in very bad financial condition.

    The social security disability payments are totally independent of Medicare reimbursement, the only connection is they take the Medicare premium out of the social security monthly check. But you continue to get your disability even though you now have Medicare reimbursement When you are 65 there will be an adjustment from social security disability to social security retirement, but Medicare will stay the same.
