Customer Question
How do I enroll...

How do I enroll in Part B of Medicare?

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. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I am 77 years old, currently working full time and am looking to retire in January of 2018. Therefore, I did to get a supplemental plan to Medicare Part A.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

I currently have two physicians I see on a regular basis. One is for pain management and the other is my primary.
