Q: Why didn’t I receive my Medicare card?

A: If you are already receiving Social Security benefits, you will automatically get your Medicare card and be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B when you turn 65. One possible reason that you did not receive your card is that you are not yet receiving Social Security benefits. This is often the case when someone is still working or if they want to maximize their benefits. If this is the case, you will need to either go to your local Social Security office or enroll online at www.medicare.gov.
