If a person retires at 62, will they get Medicare benefits
Do you only get Medicare is you retire at age 65 and up.
You can retire at age 62 and be eligible for social security benefits. But, regardless of when you retire, you are not eligible for Medicare until age 65. You could get Medicare at age 65 and keep working. The real problem is what do you do for health insurance until age 65 if you retire at age 62?
Medicare is only available for those over age 65 unless you are deemed disabled and qualify for SSDI. At which point you can receive medicare atany age.
LandmarkWealth is correct. The only thing to remember, that if you get Medicare early because of a disability, your spouse will not be eligible until she is 65 or develops a disability.
Additionally even when you're disabled Medicare does not kick immediately except with certain circumstances. I believe end stage renal failure is an immediate qualifier. There are a few others.
Medicare is only available for those over age 65 (if they were born before 1960). If you were born in 1960 or sooner you will have to wait until 67. If you are categorized as a person with a disability you may collect from the age that your disability manifested itself.
