When to Apply for Your 2021 Medicare Plans
We all know that Medicare is a tricky subject, especially if you’re encountering it for the first time. Our staff at Southern Maine Retirement Services has made it our mission to ease people through this confusing process and act as a helping hand to those who need it. Sometimes it’s hard to even know when you’re supposed to apply for a plan! Well, we’ve got you covered.
Open Enrollment Period
The official open enrollment period for Maine is October 15th through December 7th. This is always our busiest time of year here at Southern Maine Retirement Services, and understandably so. Many people choose to apply for Medicare during this period of time because it’s arguably the time that people are told about the most.
But It Doesn’t End There…
You are eligible to apply for Medicare at other times as well. The other eligibility windows are the three months before you turn 65 years old, and then the three months after. It’s important to be aware of these time frames so that you will be adequately prepared to apply when the time comes. Southern Maine Retirement Services is available year round to assist you with understanding your coverage and all the details of possible insurance plans.
