Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

There are three ways to apply for Medicare.

  1. Online at www.SocialSecurity.gov.
  2. By calling Social Security at 1-***-***-****,, Monday through Friday, from 7AM to 7PM.
  3. In-person at your local Social Security office.

Will you be receiving health insurance through your employer while you are still working?

Thank you.

No i am not receiving health insurance through employer.
My full retirement is 66 and I think that's when I can enroll to Medicare
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 7 months ago

You apply for Medicare at age 65 whether or not you are applying for Social Security benefits.

Full retirement age has to do with Social Security, not Medicare.
