• Question
  • Medicare Supplement Insurance

    Asked by a 68 year old man from Dunkirk, NY on 3/8/2018

    I worked as a public employee, and part of my retirement package is that the state continues to pay for my supplemental Medicare insurance as well as prescriptions (I have to fund my own dental and vision packages). Your planner does not offer me a way to eliminate these expenses from the medical section, but rather uses some national assumptions and plugs them in automatically. Is it possible to manually eliminate those assumptions and allow user input, so I can get a more accurate picture of my retirement situation? Thanks.
