How do I enroll in Medicare Parts A and B?

If you ARE collecting a Social Security check and are turning 65 or are eligible for Medicare due to a disability, your Medicare card will automatically be sent to you about 3 months before your Medicare effective date. If you don’t receive your Medicare card, reach out to Social Security. Medicare begins on the 1st of the month you are turning 65 unless you were born on the 1st of the month, then your Medicare would begin the 1st of the prior month. If you are NOT collecting Social Security and you want your Medicare to begin when you turn 65, you need to reach out to Social Security no sooner than 90 days prior to your birthday month.
