Customer Question
My sister's husband worked...

My sister's husband worked for the railroad. Will she get part A and B of Medicare the same as I do (retired teacher) and then she'll go to insurance office to complete her part B coverage?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

She will turn 65 in May, I don't know what else you need to know, sorry.
