Retired military. will be 65 Feb, When sign up for MEDICARE, what parts do I need?

social_security_personQ) I am retired military. I will be 65 Feb of next year. When I sign up for MEDICARE, what parts do I need Part A<B<C<D? I now have TRICARE for life.

A) According to TRICARE WEBSITE – If you have Medicare Part A, you must also have Medicare Part B to remain eligible for TRICARE. The only exceptions are if you have:

A sponsor on active duty
The US Family Health Plan
TRICARE Reserve Select
TRICARE Retired Reserve
If you fall into one of these categories, we don’t require you to have Medicare Part B to be eligible for TRICARE. But, we strongly encourage you to get Medicare Part B as soon as you become eligible for Medicare Part A to avoid losing TRICARE coverage in the future. http://www.tricare.mil/LifeEvents/Medicare.aspx

  1. On Friday November 16, 2018 Ms. Wong from Social Security called for an update on my son who is Autistic non verbal and 29 years old. I receive $323 and learned because I initially reported that I no longer receive child support. I wanted to know with this information if I was going to get my son’s benefit adjusted. I wanted to know what I had to do? If I needed to bring a notarized letter from my son’s dad or what? Ms. Wong was very unprofessional and said that my update wasn’t going to be adjusted. I called a 718 number and reported my concerns to a lovely woman who said that someone would call me, and no one has reached out to me. I have worked all of my life, and I am frustrated that SSI believes that I still obtain child support for a 29 year old. I just need to know what I have to do to obtain full SSI benefits for my son. I started to receive benefits when my son was 18. I didn’t qualify allegedly due to m income prior too.
