I am 68 and working. I would like to cancel my health insurance

This answer was rated:

I am 68 and working. I would like to cancel my health insurance from my job and go on medicare A and B. Is this legal?

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

It is completely legal to drop your healthcare and go with Medicare. You are entitled to Medicare benefits. It just takes a long time for your card to come because they just take a while to get things done. You should not worry.

Customer:

I applied August 2.

Customer:

I mean July 2

MyVirtualCPA :

That's fine. It can take some time for the cards to come in. If you don't have them by the end of next week, call 1-800-772-1213 and speak with social security

Customer:
