Megan C :

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.

Megan C :

How are you today?

Megan C :

The age at which one becomes eligible for Medicare is 65.

Megan C :

So your friend, although drawing social security benefits, would not be eligible for Medicare until she reached the age of 65

Megan C :

At that point, she's automatically enrolled.

Is there anything else I can help you with today?
