I am turning 65 years of age, what should I do?

Medicare-eligible individuals turning age 65 must apply for Medicare three months before their 65th birthday. Please contact Social Security directly at 800-772-1213 to determine if you qualify for Medicare. If you lack the sufficient required Medicare quarters (40) you can contact CalPERS at 888-225-7377 and they will assist you in filing the necessary forms to remain in the Basic Plan.
