Many people who are still working just sign up for Medicare Part A at 65 (because its free) and delay signing up for Part B while theyre covered by their employers insurance. But you must sign up for Medicare Part B no later than eight months after you leave your job and lose that coverage, or else you could get hit with a lifetime penalty and a gap in coverage.


You cant sign up online because your employer needs to provide proof that until now you had coverage at work. You can submit the paperwork by mail or in person at your local Social Security office. You will need to fill out the following forms: CMS-40B Application for Enrollment in Medicare Part B and, because you worked past 65, CMS-L564 Request for Employment Information, to be filled out by your employer. If youve had more than one job with health coverage since you turned 65, youll need each employer to fill out a separate form.
