Starting Your Application

To apply for Medicare, you can obtain the application from your local Social Security office or download the document online. Many of the questions might seem repetitive or intrusive, yet you need answer each of the questions to the best of your ability. To be sure that you are properly addressing all of the criteria necessary to qualify for Medicare, you can speak to an attorney that focuses on disability law.

Can I Apply Before 65?

While it is most common to enroll in Medicare at 65, there are some special circumstances that may allow you to enroll prior to that age. If you have a permanent disability, chronic illness, or have end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and need dialysis, you may be eligible for Medicare.
