Enrolling In Medicare
If you choose to draw social security at age 65 you should be automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Be sure to verify this with your local social security office.
You should receive a copy of your red, white & blue Medicare card approximately three months prior to your 65th birthday.
Your Medicare coverage will begin the first day of the month that you turn age 65 unless your birthday is on the 1st of the month. In that case, your coverage will begin the 1st day of the previous month.
If you choose to delay social security when you turn 65 you must self-enroll in Medicare.
If you continue to work and have health coverage through your employer group plan or your spouse’s employer group plan you have the option to delay enrollment into Medicare Part B without paying a late enrollment penalty.
You can find information on how to contact your local Social Security office by phone in the Important Medicare Phone Numbers section of the website.
You can apply for Medicare Online by visiting The Official Social Security Website
