If you will be age 65 or above, and you're preparing to retire, you need to be sure you have both Medicare Parts A and B in force when you retire.

  • If you haven't applied for Medicare, you need to do so immediately by contacting the Social Security Administration online at or by calling 800-772-1213. You need both Part A and Part B. You must have your employer complete a Request for Employment Information (L564) form available here:
  • If you already have Part A, but you deferred Part B, you need to apply for Part B now. You have a special enrollment period related to your retirement that allows you to pick up Part B with no penalty. To apply for your special enrollment into Medicare Part B, you must have your employer complete a Request for Employment Information (L564)form available here: Once that form is completed, you will need to contact Social Security at 800-772-1213, and tell them you need to enroll in Medicare Part B.

To ensure that your Medicare benefits are effective as soon as possible, it is very important that you apply for your Medicare benefits immediately.
