14 Social Security & Medicare (cont’d) If you, or a covered dependent, will be Medicare eligible (typically age 65 or older) at retirement, contact HR-Benefits three months prior to your retirement date (date when you are no longer on the University’s payroll). HR-Benefits will provide a Social Security form (verification of your health plan coverage) that you will need to enroll in Medicare without any “late enrollment” penalty. When you are retired, you must enroll in Medicare (Part A and Part B) as soon as you are eligible, if you choose to have health coverage through the University. This requirement also applies to any covered dependent, as soon as they become Medicare-eligible, if you are retired. 18

15 Social Security & Medicare (cont’d) The retiree prescription drug program (for Special Medicfill participants) is now a group Medicare D plan. You are permitted to be enrolled in only one Medicare D Plan. Enrollment plan year for (non-Medicare) health, prescription drug, vision and dental insurance is July 1 to June 30. Enrollment plan year for Special Medicfill is January 1 to December 31. For 2013, Medicare Part B premiums (which you pay to Social Security) start at $104.90 per person per month, but your income may impact the premium that you will pay for Medicare.
