Medicare eligibility


Q. I turned 62 years old in December and plan to keep on working at my agency. Can I receive Medicare if I’m still working?

A. With rare exception, no one is eligible for Medicare until they reach age 65. If you are still working when you reach that age, there is no bar to your receiving its benefits.
