Should you Already Receive Social Security Benefits

If you are older than 65 and receiving regular Social Security benefits, you should be enrolled in Medicare and do not have to do anything else.

Trying to get Social Security and Medicare at the Same Time

If you're nearing the age of 65 and not yet receiving Social Security or Medicare, you can actually fill out an application for both at the same time. To ensure your benefits coverage isn't delayed, you need to complete and send in the application at least three months before your 65th birthday.

Who is Eligible

Most individuals are eligible for Medicare. Essentially, should you or perhaps your spouse worked a minimum of ten years in any form of Medicare-registered employment and are a resident of the us, then you're entitled to Medicare. Other eligibility scenarios include those suffering from certain long-term illnesses or a disability.
