Retiring At Age 65?

Are you turning 65 soon?

Your first chance to enroll in Medicare is during your 

Initial Enrollment Period.

You have a seven (7) month open enrollment period known as your (IEP) to sign up for Part A and/or Part B when you're first eligible for Medicare.

Your IEP starts 3 months before your 65th birthday month and continues through the 3 months after your 65th birthday month, giving you a 7 month open enrollment to sign up for Medicare. If you decide not to enroll in Medicare until the month of your 65th birthday or any of the 3 months following your 65th birthday month your coverage could be delayed causing a gap in your Medicare benefits. This could also move you out of your open enrollment which could affect your choices for  a gureenteed issued Medigap policy.

This is a brief overview ot the IEP when you turn sixty five (65) and does not cover all the possible open enrollment options that could be availible to you.
