Customer Question

I turn 65 October 19, 2015 and I was talking to by insurance man and he told me to contact social security about getting my cards for medicare A and B. I am new to this and I don't really know what to do. I retired early. This October it will be 3 years I'm retired. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Good afternoon,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
When you turn 65 you will be eligible for Medicare. However, you do have to apply for Medicare to get it.
You may apply in the 6 month period surrounding your 65th birthday---three months before and three months after, So, do plan on applying for Medicare at your earliest convenience, which should be in July of this year.
Here is a link to the online application that you can fill out in July:

I wish you and yours the best in 2015,
