Medicare and Social Security enrollment handled separately
Q: My wife reached age 65 a few months ago but did not sign up for Medicare because she is still working and has insurance from her employer. Is this correct?
A: People can enroll in Medicare without starting Social Security benefits and they can enroll in only part of Medicare if desired.
Social Security and Medicare are separate programs.
