Maybe you just turned 65 or you’re considering early retirement. Whenever the time comes to retire, your life is bound to change. Transitioning to retirement can be exciting, but it can also bring questions. We are here to help when it comes to your Medicare coverage.
When you turn 65 you are automatically eligible for Medicare coverage and the benefits that come with it, like cost-effective care and coverage regardless of pre-existing conditions.
In some situations, you may qualify for Medicare if you are under the age of 65 and have a disability where you have been collecting social security for a period of 24 months. Our advisors are ready and willing to help you understand if you fall into one of these categories.
