If you are within three months of age 65 or older and not ready to start your monthly Social Security benefits yet, you can use our online retirement application to sign up just for Medicare and wait to apply for your retirement or spouses benefits later. It takes less than 10 minutes, and there are no forms to sign and usually no documentation is required. (Click on the image to the left to continue enrollment)
- If you are already collecting Social Security, your Medicare card will arrive automatically and you do not need to do anything further.
- If you do not collect Social Security, you will need to apply during your 7 month enrollment window (3 months before your birthday month, the month of your birth, or 3 months after your birth month).
