Multiple Optional Choice 10 of 11
The Railroad Retirement Board is handling your hospital and medical insurance under
Multiple Optional Choice 11 of 11
It is important for you to know, however that Medicare cannot pay any of the hospital
or medical bills unless you receive your medical care in the United States (including
Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa). Under certain, limited
circumstances, medical services provided in Canada or Mexico also may be covered by
Medicare, but only if you are living in the United States. THEREFORE, UNLESS YOU BELIEVE
THAT YOU MAY BE RETURNING TO THE UNITED STATES IN THE NEAR FUTURE EITHER TO LIVE OR
TO RECEIVE MEDICAL CARE, IT IS PROBABLY NOT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO ENROLL IN MEDICAL
INSURANCE AT THIS TIME.
You may wish to read the enclosed leaflet, which describes hospital insurance and
medical insurance under Medicare. If you decide medical insurance will be of no value
to you now but you change your mind later, you can enroll during the first 3 months
of any year, and your coverage then would begin in July of the year you enroll. Your
monthly premium would be 10 percent higher for each 12-month period that you could
have been enrolled but were not.
If You Return To Work
Generally we consider work to be substantial and gainful if the monthly earnings are
over __(1)__ per month (for the year __(2)__). In deciding whether your work is substantial
and gainful, we consider how much you actually earn, the nature of your job duties,
the skills and experience you need to do the job, expenses related to your disability,
and how much you actually earn. If you are self-employed, we may give more consideration
to the kind and value of your work, including your part in the management of the business,
than to your actual income alone.
As long as your medical condition still meets our definition of a disabling impairment,
we can pay reinstated benefits for each month your work is not substantial and gainful
until you have received 24 months of payable benefits. Benefits will not be payable
for a month(s) in which your work is substantial and gainful, if that month occurs
during the 24 month initial reinstatement period. These 24 payable months do not have
to be in a row. Even if you are not receiving payments because of work, your Medicare
coverage will continue.
At the end of these 24 months, you may be eligible for additional work incentives,
such as a trial work period, and another extended period of eligibility for Medicare.

You must tell us right away about any changes that may affect your benefits. You should
tell us if:
You change your mailing address;
You return to work or you increase your work hours;
Your doctor says your condition has improved;
You plan to leave the United States for 30 days or more;
You have been convicted of a criminal offense; or
You marry and your benefits have been reinstated as either a disabled widow/widower
or a disabled adult child.
If You Disagree With The Decision
If you disagree with the decision, you have the right to appeal. We will review your
case again and consider any new facts you have. A person who did not make the first
decision will decide your case.
You have 60 days to ask for an appeal.
The 60 days start the day after you get this letter. We assume you got this letter
5 days after the date on it unless you show us that you did not get it within the
You must have a good reason if you wait more than 60 days to ask for an appeal.
You have to ask for an appeal in writing. We will ask you to sign a form SSA-561-U2,
called “Request for Reconsideration.” Contact one of our offices if you want help.
If You Want Help With Your Appeal
You can have a friend, lawyer or someone else help you. There are groups that can
help you find a lawyer or give you free legal services if you qualify. There are also
lawyers who do not charge unless you win your appeal. Your local Social Security office
has a list of groups that can help you with your appeal.
If you get someone to help you, you should let us know. If you hire someone, we must
approve the fee before he or she can collect it. And if you hire a lawyer, we will
withhold up to 25 percent of any past due benefits to pay toward the fee.
