just hit 1,000,000 miles and 10,000 qualifying miles, what next

This may have been posted in the past but my search didn't find all the answers, so I apologize in advance for asking possibly redundant questions.

I just hit 1,000,000 lifetime miles this week and I am under the impression that I will receive lifetime Gold status.

1. How do I find out that Gold has been awarded.
2. I have read previously that I will receive some upgrades. How do they work, how and when are they received? When can they be used? Do they expire? Are these the electronic upgrades that show up on your statement? I've never had any before.

3. What other benefits are there of being Gold?

My statement also show 10,000 + ytd qualifing miles. I have read somewhere that I can expect some upgrades also. How are they received, used etc.

I realize that these may elementary questions for road warriors, but as I used to fly about 5 times per year, many of my miles came from other sources. It looks more like 7-10 trips per year for the next couple of years.

Thanks in advance for your help.
