1. ANSWER: True.
According to the government’s “Medicare and You” resource, “If you’re already getting benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), you’ll automatically get Part A and Part B starting the first day of the month you turn 65. (If your birthday is on the first day of the month, Part A and Part B will start the first day of the prior month.)
If you’re under 65 and disabled, you’ll automatically get Part A and Part B after you get disability benefits from Social Security or certain disability benefits from the RRB for 24 months.”
A red, white and blue Medicare card should land in your mailbox three months before your 65th birthday or in the 25th month of disability benefits.
