Does Medicare (parts A & B & C go into effect Dec.1? My DOB###-##-####

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.

Excuse me. I meant Parts A,B,and D. I've also been accepted for Extra Help. Is there something I need to do between now and Dec. 1st??

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

No. Not that I can think of. Just want to be sure I've done everything right

If you enroll in Medicare during Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) — when you are first eligible for Medicare, you have a seven-month period to sign up. This seven-month period begins three months before your 65th birthday, includes the month you turn 65, and ends three months after you turn 65. In this case your Medicare effective date would be the first of the month you turn 65. For example: If your 65th birthday is ***** 20, 2017 and you automatically qualify for Medicare, your Medicare effective date would be October 1, 2017.

Let me know if your situation is different.
