Cancel your benefits application

Cancel or withdraw your application up to 12 months after your benefit approval. You can only cancel your application once and can reapply later.

If you’ve begun receiving payments, you will have to repay the money you and your family received, as well as money we withheld for Medicare premiums, taxes, and garnishments. If any medical expenses were covered by Medicare Part A during this time, those will need to be repaid to Medicare as well.

Available in most U.S. time zones Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., in English, Spanish, and other languages.

Tell the representative you want to cancel your benefits application.
