You should already get signed up by SSA with your application for Medicare for Medicare A and B. Here is also

From SSA (See link: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10043.pdf) See also: https://www.medicare.gov/sign-up-change-plans/get-parts-a-and-b/when-how-to-sign-up-for-part-a-and-part-b.html

"If you’re already getting Social Security benefits or railroad retirement checks, we’ll send you information a few months before you become eligible for Medicare. If you live in one of the 50 states, Washington, D.C., the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa, or the U.S. Virgin Islands, we’ll automatically enroll you in Medicare Parts A and B. However, because you must pay a premium for Part B coverage, you can choose to turn it down."
