New Medicare Card

You’ll get a new Medicare card with an alpha/numeric ID, that’s unique to you, and it will only be used for your Medicare coverage. The new card won’t change your coverage or benefits. You’ll get more information from Medicare when your new card is mailed. If you have any questions, only call the Social Security office @ 1-800-772-1213 or Medicare office @ 1-800-633-4227. To avoid any scams DO NOT call any other number to ask or reply to any mail or calls you might received. More information, click here. New-Medicare-Card-flyer

For the states of New Jersey and New York, the distribution to those states will begin in June. To check your state distribution, click here.  Medicare Mailing-Strategy

Social Security Payee Program

Acknowledgements/Introduction Central to Justice in Aging’s mission is ensuring that our nation’s most vulnerable seniors are protected from misuse of their modest incomes. Currently there are over ten million older adults who rely exclusively on Social Security benefits as their primary source of income.1

To protect seniors from financial exploitation or interruption in their benefits, it is vital that advocates and caregivers are aware of key issues affecting the way the Social Security Administration administers payments to beneficiaries. This fact sheet is the first in a series of informational publications concerning SSA’s Representative Payee Program. This project is supported by a fellowship grant from the Borchard Center Foundation on Law and Aging, which sponsors fellows who are interested in improving the quality of life for seniors.
