Customer Question
My husband and I...

My husband and I both have Medicare Part A. We did not sign up for Part B at the same time because we still had insurance. But my husband will be retiring the end of December or the end of January, so now we want to know what we have to do to get signed up for Part B

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 important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

Not that i can think of.
