So, you’re approaching “that age.” You’ve weathered the deductions from your paycheck since your very first job. Now it’s your turn to benefit from all the years of Medicare contributions…but you may be getting overwhelmed by the countless offers and inundated by reminders telling you what to do and when to do it.
What is the most important action for you to take? Enroll in Medicare by your deadline! Enrollment is NOT automatic. Your Initial Enrollment Period is the 7 months around your 65thbirthday – including the 3 months before your month of birth, your month of birth and 3 months after your month of birth.
