SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIOD AFTER AGE 65
If you are turning 65, you are generally eligible to receive Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance) if you are a United States citizen or a permanent legal resident who has lived in the U.S. for at least five years in a row.
It usually takes about 7-10 days to receive approval – You will receive a letter stating your effective date for parts A & B. At that time, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage Program.
You are eligible to register for Medicare 90 days before your 65th birthday.
