Confused About Medicare Benefits? Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer
What: Medicare Benefits and Your Social Security Disability Benefits
Many people are confused about how long it takes to wait after you’ve received Social Security Disability benefits and to become eligible for Medicare. Some people are confused and think that they have to wait an additional two years after they’ve been approved for Social Security Disability benefits to begin receiving their Medicare. In reality, you become eligible for Medicare benefits, in most cases, in the twenty fifth month of Social Security disability entitlement.
