Can you get medicare at 62

No, you cannot get Medicare at the age of 62. Medicare eligibility typically starts at age 65. However, some individuals might be eligible for Medicare under certain circumstances before the age of 65:

  1. Disability: If you have been receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits for at least 24 months, you can become eligible for Medicare before age 65.

  2. End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD): If you have ESRD (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant), you might be eligible for Medicare, regardless of your age.

It’s important to note that while Medicare may be available to certain individuals before the age of 65 due to disability or specific medical conditions, the standard age of eligibility for most individuals is 65. It’s recommended to contact the Social Security Administration or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to get accurate and up-to-date information about your specific situation and eligibility.
