I was automatically enrolled, they just sent me my card, but my situation maybe different being I'm disabled... Just check the web site if your in doubt. I do believe that at 65 all people are automatically enrolled in Part A what people might be saying is that you need to call on part B or D even. good luck, you should have gotten a letter in the mail months before your 65 birthday...I know my wife did, I just read it...Here is the page from my wife's book on enrollment. the latest I have, hope it helps...

There is a lot of good advice above, just be aware that if you're still working past 65 and don't plan on signing up for social security, you won't be automatically enrolled in Medicare. You have to manually enroll within 3 months of your 65th birthday. Ask how I know that! I barely made it.

Silverado333,

If you are receiving some type of S.S. benefit (s.s. or disability)you may be automatically enrolled. If not disabled, people turning 65 MUST enroll or suffer benefit decreases and possible penalties forever. If yours was going to be automatic you should have received the information by now.

Much of the information on here is correct, and may or may not apply to you, but there is probably more that is WRONG, confusing, and misleading.

My advise to you is find someone that KNOWS all that is required and the options. This should not be someone selling a take advantage of you plan.

If you have a percent of disability via the military, you can use the VA for whatever they can provide. In my case, I do not qualify for any VA medical benefits, as a vet, due to my income is over what the VA allows to qualify for veteran benefits so have to rely on purchased plans, which is fine by me.

If you have not checked lately, apply again. I was over for years and one day decided to check again. Getting more $$ now then before and when I went to VA, nothing was asked about income! Suddenly I am 50% disabled and collecting $ for it.

No. If your already on SS enrolling is automatic. Otherwise you are correct. Iím on SS and was automatically enrolled.

As the first response, everyone should sign up for Medicare a few months before your 65 birthday!
