Medicare Supplement Insurance

Medicare beneficiaries in Indiana have Medicare options beyond Original Medicare Part A and Part B. You can receive your coverage through Original Medicare (with or without a Medicare Supplement plan offered by a private insurer), or through an alternative means, by enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan, offered by a Medicare-approved private insurance company. You can also enroll in a Medicare plan offered by a private insurance company contracted with Medicare to provide prescription drug coverage.

Our goal is to help individuals coming on to Medicare understand what options they have, as well as help those already on Medicare understand how their benefits work. Ruth Hoffman, Storen’s Medicare Benefits Specialist with over 15 years Medicare experience, will work with you one-on-one to help you navigate the Medicare puzzle. Learn more about Ruth here.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I track my refund?

NEW! IRS2Go is the official mobile app of the IRS. Click here to learn more and as always, feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

Is there an age where Social Security is not taxed?

No, federal taxation of SS benefits is based on income level and not age. Anywhere from 0% to 85% of the SS benefit can be taxable based on how much other income a taxpayer is reporting. Note, Indiana does not tax anyone’s social security benefits. Click here to see more FAQs.

How are Indiana State and Local taxes calculated?

For new residents of Indiana, there is a learning curve on understanding State & Local taxes. Indiana has a flat rate for the State of 3.23%. So if you have $10,000 or $1,000,000 of taxable income, you are taxed at the same rate. In addition to this, each individual pays a county tax and each County can set their own tax rate. County rates range from .35% for Jefferson to 3.38% for Pulaski. There are a few exceptions to the rule, but an Indiana taxpayer is subject to County taxes based on where they lived on January 1st of the tax year. Click here to see more FAQs.

How much retirement income is taxed in Indiana?

Like a lot of other States, Indiana does not tax Social Security Benefits. Also, Indiana gives a full or partial deduction for pensions that originate from Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management and Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Military Retirement). If one is not lucky enough to be receiving retirement from one of the listed entities, then your retirement income will be fully taxable to State and County. To keep from owing to Indiana on your Tax Return, please ask the Administrator if they will withhold State taxes on the benefits. If they do, then as a rule of thumb, we tell clients that 5% withholding will cover most taxpayers in the state. This covers both State and County rates. If someone knows that they live in a county with a rate greater than 1.7%, then take the percentage up to have withheld 6% or 7%. If the Administrator will not withhold State taxes, then Quarterly Estimates may need to be sent in. Like the Federal, Indiana can charge an Underpayment Penalty if more than $1,000 is owed at the end of the year.Click here to see more FAQs.
