FAQ Friday: Why does my Social Security show the Incorrect Part D Premium Deduction?

Most people pay their Part D drug plan premium out of their Social Security check. Don’t be alarmed if you change your Part D drug plan this Annual Enrollment Period and you receive your Social Security statement with it showing the drug plan you had for last year. This is perfectly normal. Understand that this is just two different sides of the Government that sometimes have a lag time in communicating. All you need to worry about is that you enrolled in your new Part D drug plan for 2019 and you have your policy confirmation number. As long as you have this information, you are in good shape.
