Work and Medicare


Q: I will be 62 in November. Can I receive Medicare if I continue to work?

A: You won’t be eligible for Medicare until you reach age 65 unless you have end-stage renal disease or are, in some cases, disabled. Anyhow, if you are still working when you become eligible for Medicare, you can receive its benefits.
