Do I Automatically Get Medicare When I Turn 65?

Jan 4, 2023 | 0 comments

You will be automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B if you are already collecting Social Security. If you are not then you will have to apply. This can be done either online at the Social Security website or by visiting your local Social Security office. Visit Enrolling in Medicare for more details on how to enroll. Some individuals that will continue to work and are employed by a company with over 20 employees may opt to sign up for Part A only because for most of us it will be “Free” and delay signing up for Part B until they are ready to retire. Consult with your Medicare Advisor to go over Medicare costs and compare them with your existing employer coverage.
