The Medicare Buffet Gets Closer

In the last few weeks I have received a couple of pieces of mail about signing up for Medicare.


I started a folder.  What else can I do.  259 days to go.  I’m not going to think about the choices until about 60 days before my birthday.  My hip has stopped hurting so the taxpayers can relax a little.

btw You are eligible for Medicare on the first of the month that your birthday falls in so I’m eligible on July 1, 2012.  Only 247 days to go.  Should I change the counter?

    When does SS start? The 1st of the month AFTER you turn 65?

    With SS you can start any time after 62. The longer you wait, until 72 I think, the more your benefits. It is like you have to bet on how long you will live and whether they are likely to change the deal. I expect to live to 87 so I’m waiting until 66 to take my benefit.
