I don't know which is worse; the general lack of reading comprehension, or people being so easily distracted by small details that don't matter (what day benefits arrive).

You can elect to have any Medicare premiums deducted from your monthly SS benefit, but SS is not "paying" those premiums. Otherwise you can pay the premiums quarterly, on your own, if you prefer.
You're right! My bad, I worded it poorly.

My state gives property tax refunds to renters and home owners. As a renter, I will receive $1500 in property tax refund for the year 2015.

I received $1350 for 2014.

The amount is dependent upon one's income.

Some states (or at least one that I am aware of) have an alternative to Medicaid. That alternative health insurance covers single (or married) adults and covers adults with and without children. The price is dependent upon one's income. It is coordinated with Obamacare, but the price is kept low.

How is the rebate calculated? Is it based on actual property taxes on your dwelling or is it based on a percentage of rent presumed to cover property taxes?

In Michigan, the state presumes 20% of rent paid constitutes property taxes paid by the renter, regardless of the actual property tax on the dwelling.
