When To Sign up for Medicare Part A or B
Whether or not you are retiring or continue working, most people should register for Medicare Part A within three months of turning age 65. Medicare Part A is free, and covers hospitalization. Sign up online or visit your local Social Security office.
Medicare Part B (medical insurance) is optional, because there is a cost involved. If you are eligible for Part B and do not have health insurance through your employer or spouse's coverage, there is a penalty for each month you delay application after turning age 65. If you do have medical insurance and are 65 or older, simply notify Medicare that you have health insurance and you can delay enrollment. When you do stop working, you can enroll in Medicare Part B without incurring a penalty. Find out more information here.
