Signing up for Medicare shouldn’t be complicated. And it can actually be fun. Because you have many choices
and – if you do your research – you can pick a plan that fits your needs and even gives you exciting perks and extras.
The first step is knowing when to enroll. If you’re turning 65 this year, you have a seven-month window to sign up. It begins three months before the month you turn 65 and ends three months after the month you turn 65. For example, if your birthday is Aug. 9, you can enroll from May 1 through Nov. 30. In addition, anybody 65 and older can sign up – or change plans – during the Annual Enrollment Period held each year from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.
