New to Medicare Educational Workshop

          Don’t turn 65 or retire from your job (if you’re over 65) if haven’t learned about the different parts of the Medicare program and how they affect you.

Turning 65 is your initial opportunity to enroll in Medicare – unless you are deemed disabled and have been for 24 months. If you are approaching that milestone I’d encourage you to attend one of the New to Medicare programs this year.
