Apply for Original Medicare
Apply for Medicare benefits (Parts A and B) if retiring at age 65 (and not already receiving Social Security benefits).
To avoid delays in your coverage, be sure you’re enrolled in Social Security and Medicare Part A and Part B before your 65th birthday. You can actually enroll in a Medicare health plan 3 months before your birthday. Waiting until your actual birth month will delay your coverage by at least another month.
