First wave of boomers reaches Medicare age

If you were born in 1946, you are part of the first wave of baby boomers to reach Medicare age. This year, you are eligible to start receiving health care benefits through Medicare. You must contact the Social Security Administration to enroll; it does not happen automatically. You may sign up as early as three months before your 65th birthday. To enroll in Medicare, telephone the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213. Happy Birthday!
