You do not have to wait for any approval from social security to apply.

Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.

When you're first eligible for Medicare, you have a 7-month Initial Enrollment Period to sign up for Part A and/or Part B.

Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.

Your coverage start date will depend on when you sign up. If you have to buy Part A and/or Part B, you can only sign up during a valid enrollment period.

Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.

If you didn't sign up for Part A and/or Part B (for which you must pay premiums) when you were first eligible, and you aren’t eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (see below), you can sign up during the General Enrollment Period between January 1–March 31 each year.

Your coverage will start July 1.
