Baby Boomers Can Connect to Medicare Online

The Federal Government is doing its part to get baby boomers up to speed when it comes to dealing with technology. The Social Security Administration is now making it possible for you to register for Medicare benefits ONLINE, even if you are not ready to sign up for your monthly Social Security check.

The new online application, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete, is for people reaching the Medicare eligibility age of 65 who want to delay filing for Social Security retirement benefits

To apply online for Medicare do the following.
● go to and
● choose Retirement/Medicare under the header, “Select Below To Apply For.”

You will be asked a brief series of questions.

If you have a question or need additional information, there are “more info” links.

When you’re done, just select the “Sign Now” button to submit the application.

There are no paper forms to sign, and usually no additional documents are required. If more information is needed, Social Security will contact you by phone or letter.

Make sure you ***tweet this*** to let all of your baby boomer friends on Twitter know.
