Customer Question
I plan on retiring...

I plan on retiring from my job 2/2/18. I currently have BCBS and want to apply for Medicare B with a supplement insurance. I currently have part A how do I apply

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.

Once I retire from my current job I will no longer have BCBS insurance. I want to apply for Medicare part B with a supplement insurance. Can I do this on line and how?

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

My husband will lose his medical insurance and also needs to apply for another insurance. He is only 61
