"My mom complained her Medicare premium amount went up so much this year that it wiped out the small increase in SS. I told her she was basically complaining about having a too much income outside of SS. :(" - Rharmelink

I took my MIL grocery shopping at Kroger's this morning. On the way back home she told me she laughed when she read a letter that told her about the small increase in social security this year - and how it was exactly what her increase cost in Medicare was going to be. So essentially it balanced out to zero as far as any increase in social security.

MIL did tell me she pays something like $108/month for Medicare part A & B, and then her supplemental healthcare insurance is through Farm Bureau and that brings the whole total to a little bit over $400/month. That was useful information because it won't be too much longer and I'll be on Medicare myself.
