If you are 65 and want to keep working, you can still receive Medicare coverage.

 

Jack Myers with Social Security indicates as the age to receive full Social Security benefits continues to rise, more and more people are opting to take Medicare before retiring.

 

 

Myers says naturally people have a lot of questions about how to sign up for Medicare. If you are already receiving Social Security before age 65, you will automatically be enrolled in Parts A and B. If not Myers details how to apply...

 

 

The initial enrollment period for Medicare starts three months before you turn 65 and extends until three months after. If you don't enroll during that time you can still enroll during the general enrollment period.

 

 

Myers reminds that retiree or COBRA coverage does not qualify an individual for a special enrollment period.
