Retiring Spouse Is Eligible for Medicare; But What about You?
You and your spouse have spent years making big plans for life after retirement. The moment has come when your spouse is retiring and eligible to enroll in Medicare, but you’re not quite there yet. You’ve got a little while yet before you’re also Medicare eligible.
Not to worry. Losing your employer group coverage because your spouse is retiring is a qualifying event that opens a special enrollment period when you can choose your own health insurance plan.
